Emily Blake

Archery

Emily Blake is a Junior Female Recurve Archer coached by Kisik Lee.  An interesting fact about Emily is that she switched to right-handed shooter from left-handed shooting at the beginning of 2009.  She began shooting archer at 8 years old while shooting balloons at girl scouts.  From that experience she signed up for JOAD and has been shooting ever since. 

Her greatest achievement in archery is induction into the RA Program along with qualifying for two consecutive Junior World Teams.  Long-term goals for Blake includes continued improvement to lead her to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Team. 

Personal info: What are your goals? Why does your sport interest you?

My ultimate goal is to win an Olympic Gold medal in London at the 2012 summer Games

thrill of a head to head match where every arrow counts is a feeling like no other, and I

wouldn't give it up for anything.
