Small Robin Hood Sets New World Record In Archery

A British teenager enthused by Robin Hood, a skilled archer admired in British legend, has set a world record in archery by shooting an arrow nearly 500 metres. Zak Crawford, 14, shot an arrow nearly 500 metres - identical to the length of five football pitches - using a recurve bow at the Northern Counties Flight Championships.

He also broke world records in the junior recurve and junior compound categories at the competition at RAF Church Fenton in Yorkshire.

Zak said he was "over the moon" at winning the hat-trick of world records. Bookmark and Share
