A foot above the competition...

This is Matt Stutzman, The Armless Archer. He was born without arms but was blessed to have been raised by two incredible (and incredibly patient) parents who taught him long ago that impossible is a state of mind…and not one that he should chose to embrace.
It’s a lesson that has served him well, and one that he and his wife
are trying to pass on to their two young boys on a daily basis.

His goal is to be the best archer in the world. For a man without arms that may seem unlikely, but, indeed, where this is a will, there is a way and one thing he was definitely NOT born
without was a will. He has figured out how to do a lot of things in life without arms one
of which is shoot a bow. He's gotten pretty good at it and he is a proud member of the Para United States Archery Team. He just broke a world record with a
230 yard shot to the bulls-eye.

The next step in his quest to be world’s best is to stand on the medals
podium next summer at the 2012 London Paralympic Games.
