    Probably a negative would be the modification of the action. Just perhaps the traditional movement of hand to finger and then string, has fundamentally changed, thus the natural action as it were, has gone from memory?

    I think his focus is a bit different from Olympic competition.....would be interesting to see though how he would fare in that kind of context. Impressive to say the least.......

    Lars is always incredible to watch. I keep telling myself that I should shift my archery to an even more traditional method whenever I watch another clip but, I just do not have the the time to put in that he does. I barely shoot now as it is.

    My guess is that he would do well transitioning to olympic style archery but that's not his forte. He trains with a short bow in a recreation of traditional methods for close quarter combat. Very cool stuff.

    It is some mad skills there. It must have taken years of practice. He kind of reminds of Jeremy Renner in the Avengers movie.
