Man With Paralyzed Arm Wins Bow Championship Using Teeth

Inspiration…Perseverance…Determination…
Check it out:

Eleven years ago, then-19-year-old Joe Wiseman lost the use of his right arm in an ATV accident. Earlier this month, he used his one good arm and his teeth to win Best Bow Hunter Freestyle Limited at the National Field Archery Indoor Championship.

According to SportsGrid.com, Wiseman spent the first three years after the accident thinking his bow-hunting days were over. However, he then took to the Internet and figured out that he could lock an arrow in place with his good arm, raise the bow into position with that same arm, and draw back the string with his teeth.

Wiseman normally draws “a weight of 62 pounds with his teeth,” but he “pumps it up to 72 pounds when he’s hunting.”
