World record archer shares his inspiring story at Missouri River Outdoor Expo


It's not every day you get to meet a world-renowned athlete, but on Saturday, people at the Missouri River Outdoor Expo heard from Matt Stutzman.

He's a world record archer with no arms who took home silver in the last paralympic games. He shared his personal story and showed off his skills while the crowd watched in awe.

"I think it is immensely important to come here because you get an opportunity to influence, you know, thousands of people in a positive way. And, if anytime, I can do that and create people to feel better about themselves or whatever it may be, then I'm all about it," Stutzman said.

Stutzman said he's continuously making new goals for himself. He hopes to make the next paralympic archery team headed to Rio and take home the gold.
