After picking up Archery as a 10-year-old at a school holiday program, Western Australian Taylor Worth became hooked on the sport.
Ten years later he won gold at the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games, won the National Championships, the US Open and also took out Australian Archer of the Year.
It may have only been 8 years ago but it feels like a life time ago. It was my first experience to represent my country at a multi sport event. With @gc2018 about to kick off tonight I'd like to wish every competitor the best in their sport and discipline but also remind them to have fun and enjoy this amazing experience of having a home games. Let's bring home those medals and do Australia proud!!! #gc2018 @longines #momentkeeper #ishottens #sharethedream
On his Olympic debut At London 2012 Taylor was Australia's only male archer and provided one of the upsets of the tournament when he knocked out world no.1 Brady Ellison (USA).
Another thriller followed when Taylor was agonisingly defeated in a 9-8 shootout to China's Xiaoxiang Dai. He just missed out on the quarter-finals and finished the Games 9th.
Competing in his second Olympics at Rio 2016 Taylor made history as part of Australia's first ever medal-winning archery team.
They took on tournament favourites South Korea in the semi-finals and despite shooting superbly, Taylor and his teammates went down to set up a shot at bronze against China.
And so my Olympic campaign comes to an end. What an amazing and also heart breaking four years it's been to get to this point but you know what, I wouldn't change a thing because it's shaped who I have become as a person and as an athlete. I would not be here if it wasn't for my girlfriend Emily, my family, my friends and my ever growing support network. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Although I was deviated for missing the target on the last end of the ranking round I still managed to claim an Australian Olympic record, I was also able to help my team to win Australia's first ever archery team Olympic medal and the very first for the Olympic Games and also to come agonisingly close to an individual final finishing officially in 5th place, the third highest result ever of an Aussie archer at the games, behind Simons gold and Tims bronze. There are no words to describe the level of support from home and around the world that flood in every moment. Thank you for your late nights and early morning. Now let's bet behind the rest of the team until the very end. Let's go Australia! #OneTeam @ausolympicteam
The Aussies held their nerve to defeat China and win the bronze medal.
Afterwards Taylor went in search of an individual medal. The then 25-year-old secured three straight wins to move through to the quarter-finals, where he took on eventual gold medallist Ku Bonchan of South Korea.
He needed a nine to take the match on his last arrow but shot an eight to send the match into a shoot-off where Ku scored a ten and Taylor bowed out with a nine.
On his third Olympic appearance, at Tokyo 2020, he took to the mixed team competition with Alice Ingley where the pair finished 25th.
In the men's team event they came very close to a quarter-finals appearance, but a loss to Chinese Taipei prevented it in a shoot off by just one point, finishing 9th overall.
It was the same result in the individual competition for Taylor, he survived two elimination rounds and finished 9th following a loss in the round of 16.
