RALEIGH, N.C. — Miles Heyman, a 13-year-old North Raleigh boy who has been devoted to a recurve bow for nearly five years, hopes one day to represent his country at the Summer Olympics.
Heyman will be one of about 30 archers participating in a statewide National Field Archery Association competition this weekend at Carolina Outdoor Sportsman, which recently moved its store from far North Raleigh to 2411 Millbrook Road.
The event is run by the state chapter of the archery organization, and on the line will be statewide bragging rights. Competition will be taking place concurrently at two other locations in the state.
Heyman has won the event in his age group three times, and he has entered indoor and outdoor archery competitions on the national level, including with USA Archery, the body that oversees the U.S. Olympic archery team.
Heyman received his first bow as a present from his parents on his eighth birthday, having recovered from a medical condition called postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, a debilitating condition that raises the heart rate and causes lethargy.   See Full Article Here...
