Armless Archer Aims to Win Gold this Summer at Paralympics


Matt Stutzman has always been passionate about sports. So much so, that he wanted to be a professional athlete.

And despite being born without arms, Stutzman was determined to make that dream a reality. He played basketball for years, using his feet, but realized he wasn’t accomplished enough to make the big leagues. He then took a chance at archery and began competing at the Paralympics.
