Green-Clad Olympic Archer Steals Gold Medals From Rich, Gives Them To Poor

Yesterday, while I was watching some archery "highlights" I got to thinking about how stupid it is that Robin Hood could hit the back of his other arrows. Olympians don't come close even with fancy equipment.

The Onion seems to have had similar, but funny thoughts
In almost every case, archery-related schemes were used to secure the medals, although some were more difficult for him to obtain than others.

An epic four-way fencing match broke out during the Women's Saber medal ceremony, with the archer taking on the three American women in a clash of blades that spilled out onto the balcony and across the Beijing rooftops. Germany's Ole Bischoff, winner in the Men's 81kg judo event, threw the archer through a nearby table and down a flight of stairs before his feet were nailed to the ground by arrows. And the Chinese women's gymnastics team was almost impossible for the archer to catch.
