1000- Arrow Challenge

Emily

The resident archers here at the Olympic Training Center do an event every December called the "1000 arrow challenge." This involves shooting 1000 arrows in a row. It takes between 6-13 hours, depending on how fast the athlete can shoot.

On a normal day (over the course of 8 hours), the archers might shoot between 200-300 arrows. 1000 arrows is over three times the normal training load. To put things into perspective, that would be like us kayakers taking our normal 2-3 hours on the water daily and multiplying it into a 9-hour continuous paddle Yikes. Talk about over-distance training.

Anyway, I spent a good portion of my day watching these audacious athletes and taking pictures of their suffering. Everyone needs good support, you know?
