This guy is incredible. Meet the worlds fastest archer: Lars Anderson. According to Lars, the hollywood depiction of archery is not a very accurate one (no surprise there). He says he studied ancient texts, images, and manuscripts for years to get a better picture of the techniques that were used in ancient times. He then applied this knowledge to his technique. He is now able to fire 3 arrows in .6 seconds (which is incredible in of itself), but there were even more highly skilled archers in the past that could top even that.
It says in his press release: “For thousands of years, the bow and arrow was used for war. Those days are long gone, and most people today only know of archery through TV and movies. However, as the Danish archer Lars Andersen has proved, Hollywood archery has very little to do with actual war archery.”
His newest video debunks several Hollywood myths and shows off not only impressive feats like grabbing and arrow in mid-air and firing it back. But to see the ultimate archery trick, you’ll have to watch the video to see for yourself!
