Yeah.

I have never attempted it, so I'd imagine challenging for me. Though, It raises the question as to why the event is held.

These Olympians are really struggling today. I feel bad for the conditions.

Yeah you get so many arrows and you have shoot at this target at certain distances. I think the longest distance is 70 meters, but don't hold me to that. They also have indoor and outdoor events it's really confusing on how it's set up. Yes they are struggling these days. Alot of them are having a hard time getting sponsors for equipment and various other things that they'd need. Here's a video on olympic archery:

It's with a bit of schneidenfreude i say it's the only place he won a stanley cup.

I was a little young to remember seeing some of his best play.

I was 11 when he was sold to the kings, i'll admit tears were shed.

Never followed hockey much, but I can imagine. The WG trade/selling will probably always be one of the most unbelievable events in sports history. I was shocked that the greatest player of all time was now on an American team. He cried also. Ironically, I have the boxed DVD set of Wayne Gretzky, and stunned is all I can describe his leaving Edmonton. Teams pay these athletes too much and can't afford them. Won't Wayne go down as one of the top paid hockey players of all time, and hockey doesn't pay the salaries like MLB and NFL?

Oh yeah, I don't doubt that a bit. Can you belive that tomorrow makes 4 years since I joined, wow. That was fast. This December makes 4 for years since you've joined.

Anyways. I watched the women's slope style finals and that one lady scared the crap out of me. She didn't land right and hit the back of her head on the ice. It destroyed her helment and she didn't get up right away either.
