IOWA An Iowa man was born without both arms, but he didn t let that stop him from taking up archery a few years ago. Now his aim is dead on.

Matt Stutzman uses his foot to load the arrow then he pulls the bow using a small string attached to his shoulder, and he triggers the release with his jaw.

In 2012, he won a silver medal at the Paralympics in London the gold medalist had use of both arms.

Stutzman said he has his sights set on gold in 2016.

Ultimately, I want to prove to the world that I'm just kind of normal, you know, said Stutzman. I'm just doing my thing. I was born with no arms, yes, but I'm blessed to be able to compete with the best.

He recently competed against nearly 2,000 of the world s best archers with arms and he finished in fifth place overall.
