    Default Competitions

    Hello All,

    I am new to archery and would like to ask one, perhaps pretentious question. I am 33 years old and would like to know if I am to “old” to think about professional competitions? I know that this depends on many factors (training, talent, psychic, etc.), but generally is age an issue?

    Thank you for your help…

    Regards,

    Milos

    Congratulations for wining the ASA Classic World Championship! That must have felt great. How long did you train to get to that level? I know that you are 34 but when did you start training?

    BTW: Roger Willet, Jr., who is the best archer in the world today in FITA Competition, is 52 (I read this on another forum) but he probably started training when he was 15 or something like that...

    Anyway, I will just try to have as much fun as possible and I will also try to get my kids to join me...

    Thanks.

    I have shot competitively off and on since 99. I quit in feb of 04 and started back late april of 08. You just have to dedicate your time. Be willing to do what you have to do to reach the goals you have. If you are then it will all come together.
    Good luck,
    jame

    I shot back in 2007 and won one Trophy. Of which Iam very proud of because the course was very hard. I shoot a Traditional Class bow (Recurve), and the distance some of these targets were was sometimes very difficult to just hit let alone get a really good score. I was the only Traditional Class finisher. Everyone else quit!
