It is with deep sadness that Archery Australia wish to inform you that John Chaplin, highly respected and much loved, passed away over the weekend after a brief illness.
John was a Life Member of Archery Australia, former President of Archery Australia and Chairperson of World Archery’s Board of Justice and Ethics.
John’s passion, commitment and enthusiasm for Archery was always inspiring and he was a leading light both within Australia and World Archery for his contributions to our sport.
A former International Judge, John served as Director of Shooting for the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Member of the Jury of Appeal at Beijing 2008, and was Technical Delegate for the Sydney 2009 World Masters Games.
In Athens 2004, he was with the Australian Olympic Team as Team Manager for Archery.
Everyone at the Archery Australia family is saddened by his death and we send our sympathies to his family and many archery friends. He will be sorely missed.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend John’s funeral service to be held in the chapel, Parsons Funeral Home, 10 Woolworths Avenue Warilla on Thursday April 26, 2018 at 10am
