Dolly Shivani Cherukuri recently broke a national archery record in India. At the age of 2, she became the youngest person in the country to earn at least 200 points at an archery competition. She's definitely ready to join Team Arrow!

Dolly comes from a family of archers. Her father runs an archery school and trains her in that art for 2 to 3 hours a day. It's already paid off. The Daily Telegraph reports:

Dolly scored a total of 388 points. She began by firing 36 arrows at a target 15 feet away, then shot 36 more, this time from 21 feet.

The young record-breaker was being set up for bow and arrow stardom “when she was in the womb itself,” Cherukuri Satyanarayana, Dolly’s father, told AFP. Light carbon arrows were made so she wouldn't struggle with their weight when training.
