Great Britain's clean sweep of medals in the women's individual compound W1 event at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games has been named World Archery's top Paralympics performance of last year.

During the Games, Britain were emphatic in the sport as they claimed three golds, two silvers and a bronze to top the event's medal table.

However, the nation's finest moment came on the last day of competition, as the women’s W1 team won all three medals on offer.

Jessica Stretton, aged 16-years-old, was the youngest archer in the competition and went on to claim gold while Jo Frith took silver and the bronze went to Vicky Jenkins.

It was the first British one-two-three since the Paralympics in Atlanta 1996 where Alan Lyne, George Wright and Keith Brenton dominated the men's lawn bowls singles LB7/8 competition.

It is only the second time in history that an archery podium has been filled by one country.

The first was in the men's recurve standing competition at London 2012, when all three medals were won by Russia.

Meanwhile, Iranian Zahra Nemati's successful defence of her London 2012 recurve title finished second in the list.

Nemati produced a dramatic 6-4 win over World Para Archery Championships gold medallist Wu Chunyan of China.

Nemati also took silver in the recurve mixed team with Ebrahim Ranjbarkivaj, bringing Iran’s total tally of archery medals to four which secured them third place in the para-archery medal table. 

Britain were very closely followed in the medal standings by China, who also had a successful Paralympics, taking home three golds and two silvers.

Zhou Jiamin's was the standout Chinese performer and came third in World Archery's list as she took gold in the the compound women’s open and the compound mixed team open competition, the latter with her teammate Ai Xinliang.

Meanwhile, three athletes were highlighted by World Archery for honourable mentions.

Britain's John Walker claimed two golds at his debut Paralympics while Andre Shelby of the United States secured his nation's only podium finish,

Shelby claimed gold in the compound men’s open at his first Paralympics after he beat favourite Alberto Simonelli of Italy by a single point.

The third athlete to gain an honourable mention was Brazilian Luciano Rezende who came an agonising fourth in the recurve men’s open category.
