My daughter began archery this summer, my son instantly wanted to take part as well. After watching how dedicated she is, taking her to daily coaching and practice sessions; it became apparent that not only is she gifted in this sport - she is passionate about it.
Olivia researched archery as a sport and discovered that not only are there national and international competitions, Archery is an Olympic event. Going to the Olympics has become her goal. She talks about it non-stop, asking her father and I "when I go to the Olympics, will you both be there?" Notice she does not say "IF" but "WHEN".
So now my son is also shooting. He is really gifted and passionate about it too. Last week their coach told my husband a funny story. It seems that Olivia was talking about "when" she goes to the Olympics and Topher said, "Sissy, wouldn't it be funny if I made it to the Olympics before you?" Their coach began laughing his ass off! Olivia was not too happy, but Topher was not trying to be snide - he was honestly asking her if it would be funny...she did not see the humor.
Ah! Sibling Rivalry at its best!
