Peter Kelchner

My goal is to become the 2012 Olympic gold medlist in both the individual and the team round  and to represent my God, my country and my sport on and off the field.

I enjoy my sport because of the challenge mentally and physically, and the simple pleasure of shooting an arrow at a target.

Kelchner began shooting archery at the age of 10.  He began shooting archery because he enjoyed the challenge it presents.  One of his greatest achievements in archery is when he became a Resident Athlete in September 2008.  He is coached by Kisik Lee and is a member of the Road Runner Archery Club based out of Chula Vista, CA.  His goals over the 2009 year is to become the Top USAT Archer for the Junior Recurve Division.  Kelchner's goal is to become an Olympian to compete in 2012 London Games.
