NFAA World Archery Festival | South Point | February 9, 2014
Archery is a very visual sport, with decorative bows and arrows and even the youngest competitor taking things seriously once in front of the target. Archer Matt Stutzman of Fairfield, Iowa, immediately caught my eye—he was the only athlete holding the bow and shooting arrows with his feet. Born without arms, Stutzman uses his feet the way most people use their hands, and when it comes to archery, even better. He won a silver medal at the 2012 Paralympics, and is clearly able to compete with anyone; he shot one of the top scores of the day at the festival. More than anything, Stutzman is an inspiration to others, and I’m told has a wicked sense of humor ... when he’s not focusing on the target.
