All the best archers are over 90kg ; )
Perfect practice makes perfection. I learned that shooting arrows doesn't improve scores beyone a certain level. You need to constantly work very hard, and always concentrate 100% on every arrow you shoot in practice. It will pay off. Practice is for training, competitions are for shooting arrows.
