Adding to the Olympic success of Queensland Lutheran schools’ alumni and students, Taymon Kenton-Smith represented Australia in archery at the recent Tokyo Paralympic Games.

Taymon, 27, competed in the open men’s individual recurve and mixed team recurve events and was narrowly beaten in the 1/16 elimination round of the open men’s event. A former student at St John’s Kingaroy and Prince of Peace Everton Hills Lutheran primary schools and Grace Lutheran College Rothwell, Taymon was also part of the Australian team which lost to Poland in the open 1/8 elimination round of the mixed team recurve. Born with a partial left hand, he competed with a custom grip and arm brace. He said on social media after his return to Australia that he ‘had an absolute dream over at the Paralympic Games’.
