The trail to the Paralympics
The trail to the Paralympics

My name is Lucas Herro. A little over nine years ago I was injured in a diving accident on the river. That accident left 85% of my body paralyzed. About a year ago, I was introduced to the sport of archery. What started out as a hobby and a good way to spend time has turned into an endeavor of great proportions. I intend to represent my country in the Paris Para Olympics in 2024 and will not let off the throttle until I am the #1 class w1 para archer in the world.
