A real-life archer faster than Legolas?

March 24, 2013 at 12:49 am by Demosthenes  - 

Legolas in vlog #8 courtesy of DarkJackal We all know that Legolas Greenleaf is pretty speedy with that Lothlorien bow of his. But that’s in Movieland. Surely it’s impossible to replicate in real life.

Danish archer Lars Andersen believes he’s rediscovered ancient techniques that allow him to shoot as fast — or faster than — Legolas does in the movie of The Lord of the Rings.

The trick? He holds not just the one arrow in his hand, but every single arrow he intends to shoot — so each arrow is ready to be fired immediately. There’s a good view of it at around 3 min 15 secs in the video below, and some interesting and insightful discussion of the technique in this old post over on Reddit.



Russian archer SeregedelReal is pretty fast on the draw too!
