Lars Anderson is the biggest name that you’ve never heard of. He is the premier talent in the world of archery, to the point of being historically good. He has spent the last decade honing his craft, and has taken the Robin Hood / Hollywood concept of archers and replaced it with a more traditional concept of how archers were once the most feared warriors on a battle field.
His approach takes into account the styles of many cultures, from ancient Egypt to Japan, from the Mongols to medieval times. The archery style that he has researched has him holding arrows differently, shooting with both hands from a variety of angles, all of which allows him to unleash a barrage of arrows nearly twice as quickly as his nearest rival — three shots in 0.6 seconds — with incredible accuracy.
His talent with a bow and arrow is only overshadowed by his slight goofiness and lack of athleticism, both on display as he shows off his archery skills (watch him throw a ball, jump, and <gasp!> rollerblade). He may shoot like Legolas, but definitely does not move like him.
That being said, Anderson is still nothing short of completely amazing. We don’t know how many takes it took him to do what he did at 5:37, but we would have ended up with a few more holes in our faces if we tried it.
