The medal winning performances of British archers have given the British team just the confidence boost they require for the London 2012 Paralympics, a team official said.

With two more medal events yet to be contested, Britain has won two golds, one silver and one bronze so far at the Beijing Games.

Time Hazell, the coach and manager of the British team, feels that a good haul here is just what British archery needs in the run-up to London 2012.

"This competition will be a positive sign for us in the London Paralympic Games," said Hazell. "We have a number of younger archers coming up to the national team. This can help to push them to a new level."

Hazell added that his next goal is to analyze areas where the team can improve.

"When we get back after the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games we will analyze what we have done right and wrong, in order to better prepare for London's Games," he said.

Britain's medal haul was three more than South Korea, a perennial powerhouse in archery.

"It is obvious that South Korea is the best considering the level of archery in the world," said Hazell.

"But the rest of the world is catching up. This will help raise archery to a higher level."
