The Inspiring ‘Armless Archer’ of Tokyo2020

Inspiration everywhere at the #Paralympics. Today is a special day for American Matt Stutzman ‘The Armless Archer’ who opens his quest for gold. Matt was born with no arms and first saw archery on TV in 2010, deciding to take up the sport using only his legs. He became so good he won silver in London 2012.

“I’m a Paralympic silver medalist and world record holder. And did I mention I do everything with my feet. I feel almost like Superman”
