In the case of Elizabeth Lynch, practice didn’t make perfect and almost killed her.
The Jennings County High School student drew back a bow hundreds of times as she worked to become one of the top athletes in Olympic style archery. In March 2012, her hard work paid off with a National Field Archery Association national championship in the junior division for ages 13 to 16.
Two weeks after her national title, her right arm began to swell and turn purple.
