Spencer Yee, 10-year-old Archery Prodigy

For the Chinese American Western I’m writing, COWBOY NINJA, I have a lot of fun going out and “researching” the subject, and one thing on my list for this summer is archery classes. So I was especially impressed when I saw the news on Yahoo! Sports about 10-year-old Spencer Yee who earned gold at the 2012 Pan American Games going against teens around seven years older than him. Yee out shoots his father Steve Yee and his Paralympian teacher Eric Bennett, and if he had been four years older, he could possibly qualify for the Olympics. Winning gold medals before even graduating from elementary school? Now that’s inspiring!
