Celebrity of the week: Roberto

On my last vacation to El Salvador, my grandpa taught my brother and I archery. My grandpa was and archer champion on a tournament. He taught me that there are three different types of archery competitions: Long range, short range and group range. When I grow older I would like to be an archer like my grandpa.


To practice the archery sport you need a bow, an arrow and a target board. You have to be very focused when practicing this sport because the arrows are very pointy and dangerous. You are only allowed to hit the target board.


My grandpa taught me that the bow does not go up or down, it should only go to the left or to the right.The arrow always goes in the middle of the bow and you need to hold it still with your finger. At the beginning of our practice, my brother and I were very nervous. But after a few tries, we loved practicing it. And the best part is that at as we practiced our arrows were even closer to the middle of the target board which is the best points that you could have in an archery competition.

I felt very confident after a few days practicing with my brother and my grandpa. I thank him for teaching us. Archery is not a very common sport, but is one of my favorites. Hopefully, we go back soon and I could go practice with my brother again.





Thank you for reading.
