KIRKSVILLE, MO (WCMH) — In 2012, he rose to fame at the 2012 London Paralympics and quickly became known as the “Armless Archer.”
Matt Stutzman’s new sight is the 2020 Tokyo games.
“Until I can hit the middle of the target every single shot I’m gonna keep pushing and learning,” Stutzman tells KTVO.
Originally, Stutzman took up archery as a way to provide, but it soon turned into a goal to reach greatness. “I want to be the best archer in the world. I can take a bow that’s not modified for me and I can compete against people who have no physical disabilities and beat them, I mean that’s pretty awesome right?” say Stutzman.
After a few upcoming competitions, Stutzman says he’s going to focus on the 2020 games in Tokyo, but he knows nothing is guaranteed. “I’ll keep my toes crossed; maybe I’ll win my chance to go represent the USA again,” Stutzman tells KTVO.
