Now this vid isn't near as intense... but the Russian Girl is fun to watch shoot.

With you on that one - but she is way to tall for you guys.

Worked in Russia for a summer the women are stunning and LOVE American's - it was a rude awakening when I got back to Missoula and the hippy chicks were not so impressed with me.

LMFAO Matt... I feel your ya bro.... All the russians in Missoula just marry Russians! I lived next to two or three familys of them in Lolo... all the daughters, of which there were many...looked very similar to that archer...

Its a cool vid annd I love watching a good archer shoot .
I have just set up my "Oly Rig" and am starting to train again ... and the training is killer ...

I shot bows a lot and at heart am a nerdy wood arrow staright limb longbow guy ... but I also grew up shooting a lot of FITA and it is crazy hard ... not saying that 3D isn't but a double FITA is an exercise in both physical and mental pain .. and great fun to boot ...

I am actually really looking forward to getting back and competing again in some full FITA rounds ..... I still think that heaps of guys miss out on a lot by not shooting IFAA , NFAA and FITA ... 70 yard plus shooting for score is a great way / tool to better your overall shooting .....

at my estimation [ and i am shit at maths :lol: ] after a two day FITA using my 42# bow , not including warm up shots I will have pulled 5.5 tonnes ... and still trying to keep good form on a the little target face in those last shots is just plain hard .....

Mind you , I totally suck at 3D as well ......... So take what I am saying with a grain of salt ......

Great Video! Shows how the pressure of match shooting can really get to you. I watched the Vid also of Team USA at the recent WAF in Vegas, watching Vic Wunderlee, Brady Ellison and the rest of the top shooters...

I think I will try out for the next OLY curling team :)



I think that is about the most ridiculous thing I've read on the internet in quite a long time. What sport other than ours hates its own participants?

There is a reason archers are not signing multi million dollar contracts.

I shot and won an American 900 round a few years ago at a local club. I won it because I was the only guy shooting a recurve that turned in a score card. I got a belt buckle to prove it too.

I haven't done it since. It wasn't very fun. It was more like work than it was something you do for fun. There was no walking through the woods, talking about having sex with Elizabeth Taylor's armpit and goofing off like we do. There were no trees to bounce arrows off of and bent arrows don't shoot better than straight arrows. Then you have to be quiet and people are all so competitive and act like their diapers need changing. It wasn't fun. I don't like doing things that suck. 3D is physically easier, but it's also more difficult in certain ways. You don't have any ranging shots, just 1 and done. Shooting a long distance in a open field presents its own challenges with wind pushing your arrows and direct sun effecting your bow limbs. For me, archery is a social sport and the FITA stuff seems more antisocial than anything. Half way through the round, FITA shooters aren't going to walk over to the concession stand and slam a few beers and pound a few sandwiches and socialize for a half hour before going back. They'll cut each-other's ham strings given the chance and element of surprise. :lol:

People like hard sports. Look at all the nut-jobs lining up to do the Tough Mudder. Maybe it's because there's no competition, it's just going there to do it sorta thing, vs trying to beat others.
