SPORTOLOGICALLY SPEAKING
For over 200 years, Japanese archers competed in a contest called toshiya (clearing arrows). Instead of hitting a target, archers had to shoot as many arrows as possible along a 120-meter veranda without hitting the roof, pillars, or floor. The all-time record was set in 1686 by an archer who cleared 8133 out of 13,053 total arrows over 24 hours: a rate of six arrows per minute.
