Archery at Lord’s Sports Ground

I think this was the highlight of my trip. My friends and I got to go behind the scenes at Lord’s Sports Ground where the Archery takes place. We got to meet the US Olympic team who had just got a silver medal…and yes…I got to hold it…it was heavy and so beautiful. Then we got to actually shoot at a target and were coached by the Olympic coaches themselves. I had a blast and I got a bulls eye! Did you know that they have an entire field for them to practice in before the come and shoot in front of the camera? The wall that they are shooting at with the targets is also the wall between the field and the dining room. Good thing they have good aim! The bow was smaller than what they use to shoot. Their bows are taller tan I am! When I get home, I want to take up archery.
