Matt Stutzman tells his incredible story about finding a way to compete in every sport, including dribbling a basketball until his shoulder was bleeding. Competing with his siblings and growing up with parents who allowed him to face life without prosthetics or modifications. He explored his passions from basketball to bull riding, but that whatever it takes attitude has taken him to the top of his sport and an Olympic silver medal.
I’m going to figure this out. I’m going to make it happen.
Matt didn’t actually take up archery until 2009. He was looking for a way to provide for his family and so he went out into the woods with a bow and arrow and brought home dinner. Bow hunting led him to try competitive archery. Just a few years later, Matt was in the London for the 2012 Paralympics. Now, Matt is hoping to compete able-bodied archers in the 2020 Olympics.
