Archery August 10th, 2012

Athletes with physical disabilities get a chance to show off their shooting expertise in archery either standing up or in a wheelchair.  During competition, adapted archery is identical to able bodied archery.  Shooters shoot 72 arrows from a distance of 70 meters at a target of 122 centimeters; a perfect score being 720.  Modifications are not made to the bow, instead if any modifications are needed; they are made to the individual’s chair.  Being able to modify the chair, allows athletes to be able to hold and use the arrow with comfort.  If you have the upper body strength and the fine motor skills to be accurate, this may be the sport for you.
