Inspirational: Im Dong-hyun, who is legally blind, just broke the world record in archery in London. Just when you think you can’t, take a look at Im Dong-hyun who said, yes I can!
South Korea claimed the first world records of London 2012 on Friday morning with a stunning display in the men’s archery ranking round at Lord’s.
Im Dong-hyun, who is registered as blind, broke his own 72-arrow mark of 696 by three points and was also part of a record in the team shoot. Im’s partial sight means he shoots at the centre of a colourful blur he sees 70 metres before him. Alongside Kim Bubmin and Oh Jin-hyek he helped register a 216-arrow total of 2,087 – smashing the world record by 18 points. Source: Guardian
