#Shootlikeme: 5 best videos of archers explaining their techniques

7 août 2018
World Archery released the second series of #Shootlikeme in 2018.

World Archery’s #Shootlikeme is a series of short online episodes in which world-class archers explain their own techniques. To celebrate the last video in the second season, featuring Mete Gazoz, we’ve picked out the five best episodes to date.

Watch the full #Shootlikeme playlist on World Archery’s YouTube channel.

5. GUMMI GUDJONSSON

Archery is a very individual sport. Nothing says that better than some of the peculiar approaches to archery technique, like Gummi’s backhand draw.

4. SARA LOPEZ

Colombia’s Lopez has set a new standard for compound women’s archery. Does how she holds her release aid have something to do with that?

3. JC VALLADONT

Following injury to his shoulder, Valladont developed a draw that looks very different and is difficult to maintain within the rules; here he explains why it’s necessary for him.

2. BRADY ELLISON

Brady doesn’t shoot like a Korean and he knows it. This is an incredible insight into the styles of one of the best of his generation. 

1. OH JIN HYEK

One of the first episodes and one of the best. Archery is all about balance and flow. Oh Jin Hyek rode his technique all the way to Korea’s first men’s Olympic gold medal in 2012.
