The madness of Italian Olympic champion archer Michele Frangilli
The Olympics brought a host of new foreign archers to the attention of US archery enthusiasts. One of these was Michele Frangilli, who was part of the three man team that won the Gold in Team Men’s Archery. (The US took Silver, and the South Koreans improbably took Bronze).
As a novice archer who is still working on mastery of the shot, the thing I find so amazing about Frangilli is how he anchors. Remember that to be a consistent archer, you have to be able to do everything the same every time you shoot. Tiny differences in your skeleton, muscles, and their position and alignment will result in inconsistent shooting. Look at these three stills of Frangilli moving to his anchor point.
