Meet The Armless Archer — A Paralympic Hopeful

Matt Stutzman was born without arms, and yet he is a champion archer in a sport where virtually every other competitor needs two arms to compete. Stutzman is a marksman with his bow and arrow, recently qualifying to compete for a spot to represent the United States in London at the 2012 Paralympics — the games for those with disabilities that run concurrent with the Olympic games.

This father of two can do just about everything that people with arms can do, including ride a motorcycle and drive a car. But even more amazing, he can shoot an arrow. Watch him in action below:
Curt Swarm of the Newton Daily News in Iowa reports:

Matt is available for motivational speaking and demonstrations. His website: http://www.inspirationalarcher.com has film clips of, amongst others, Matt shooting his bow and gun, assembling a bow, and Matt changing brake pads on a car — all with his feet.
