WATCH: 'Armless Archer' breaks Guinness World Record

Matt Stutzman, who was born without arms, became the first archer, able-bodied or otherwise, to hit a target 230 yards away.

IOWA’S MATT STUTZMAN only took up archery two years ago, but he’s already secured his place on the United States Paralympic archery team; a feat made all the more remarkable by the nature of his disability: he was born without arms.

Yesterday, Stutzman added another string to his bow, hitting a straw target from an impressive 230 yards and, in doing so, claiming the Guinness World Record for the longest accurate archery shot.
