Tim Peers’s Athens Adventure
E very year, more than 5,000 Veolia employees from all over the world take part in the World Company Sports Games, competing in a huge range of disciplines from basketball, darts, track and field, swimming... and even chess! Tim Peers, an archer from Wirral Archers took his place among many Veolia colleagues at the 2021 World Company Sports Games in Athens! “Day one was the ranking round, in which I finished fourth. Then on day two, we went head-to-head in individual knock-out matches. I worked my way to the semi-final, in which I was up against Greek National Champion, Alex - but I lost. So this led me to content in the bronze medal match. However, after winning all our matches, my team and I found ourselves in contention for the gold or silver medal too! “On day three we competed for medals, with my bronze medal match being a very close call, but I won! As for the team match, it went to a shoot-off - however our team lost by a couple of points. So we won the silver medal! “I would like to thank a few people, firstly to the AVS team for inviting me to this most amazing and rewarding experience - I will never forget it! Thank you to my new archery buddies for their friendship, encouragement and patience. And to my new Greek friends, and many others, thank you for making my experience in Athens special. It made me feel like I was shooting at the Olympics!
