Archery Men's Team

ponta 0 · July 25

Target Language - English

I'm watching the Olympics, archery men's team matches. The Japanese team defeated the U.S. team, and I was so excited about the game!
When I was doing archery, I studied and tried to improve my archery style based on the representative players in each country. I respected Brady Ellison and Jake Kaminski in the U.S., or Rick van der Ven in the Netherlands. (Does someone know one of them?)
Specifically, I really liked Jake Kaminski. I thought his shooting form was the most beautiful and coolest, and I bought the instruction book that he wrote. Of course, it was written in English and there was no Japanese edition. Thus, I made up my mind to translate it by myself. Because I wasn't good at English so much at that time, I could translate only a part of the book as I was helped by English teachers. Also, I couldn't be a competitive player like him. However, I'm positive the experience motivated me to learn English hitherto.
