Welcome to my blog!

FITA-JaniceShootingArchery is probably not the first sport that comes to mind when you think about activities for people who are blind. I can assure you that it should be. I’m
blind and have been participating in target archery since 2004.

 

In this blog I’d like to share with you how you can try archery if you are blind. I’ll talk about where you can shoot and what special equipment you’ll
need.

 

I also want to share some of my experiences shooting competitively. I’ve been so lucky to have participated in three world championships, competing
in the visually impaired category where I won silver, bronze, and now gold this past summer. My journals from the first competitions are on my web site seenolimits.org. You will find my latest World Championship journal right here as part of this blog. I also currently
hold the world record for visually impaired archery in my category.

 

Because people don’t realize that this is a sport for all abilities, there are very few competitors, but I want to change that. Archery is a very fulfilling
sport that gives you a real feeling of accomplishment. It’s a great social sport that you can do with family and friends of all ages.

 

I hope I can inspire
more people who are blind/visually impaired to give it a try.

About Janice Walth

My first blog, See No Limits, discusses why I enjoy competing in the sport of archery as a person who is blind. I hope other people who are blind will realize that archery is a legitimate sport for them and that they can do it as a hobbie as well as competitively. I share my experiences and hope you or someone you might know will want to give it a try. My second blog, Guide Dog Musings, talks about my life working with a guide dog partner. I want people to know how special the bond is between a person who is blind and their dog guide. I hope you'll want to encourage your family and friends to either donate to this wonderful nonprofit organization, volunteer to raise a puppy that can go on to become a guide, or decide to apply for a guide dog yourself.
