Matt Stutzman Shatters World Arching Record Despite Being Born Without Arms

You're thinking this cannot be possible, but it most definitely is.

Matt Stutzman recently set the record for longest shot by hitting a target located 230 yards away, and he does not have any arms.

Stutzman uses his legs and his mouth to aim the bow, which is absolutely crazy. I, for one, would never be able to do such a thing.

Are you still having doubts? Check out this video.

Stutzman uses a release aid that straps around his shoulder, he then aims with his feet, and uses his mouth to release the aid and fire.

In a conversation with MSNBC, Stutzman had this to say about his unique method,

"My feet are my hands, so I just and hold it the same way they would with their hands."

"I believe how I shoot is an advantage, because I use my leg and my leg is the strongest part of my body."

"I want to be the best archer in the world...hands down...the best archer in the world."

Well, he kind of already is the best archer in the world. He does hold the Guinness world record for the longest shot already.

According to MSNBC, he is trying to make the 2012 Paralympic Team, is there any doubt in your mind that he will make it?

I do not think so.

Congrats Mr. Stutzman and good luck.
