Video: This Archer is Faster Than Legolas
By Colin Kearns
If you can get past the robotic narrator, the archery stunts in this video are pretty entertaining. (I especially got a kick out of the parts where he shoots while jumping onto a mat.) In the clip, archer Lars Anderson shoots 10 arrows in 5 seconds. His speed secret is holding all of the spare arrows in his right hand so he can fire them in rapid succession. A trick like this might be valuable in a Middle Earth orc war, but in a treestand—not so much. Still, like I said, pretty entertaining. Lars should team up with Joerg, the slingshot guy.
