The archer in this video fires an arrow at a girl who needs to be very quick and concentrated enough to catch it. You don’t have to be an arrow scientist to figure out how to do it. Yes, it’s true that arrows go at crazy speed, but the bow and arrow used here are not professional ones, so it is easier to do <a href="https://rumble.com/v4e585-girl-pops-a-balloon-with-a-bow-and-arrow...while-doing-a-handstand.html" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:archery stunts" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">archery stunts</a> with them. Nevertheless, the trick is successful and it is pretty darn cool. The archer stands upright with feet shoulder width apart and keeps a relaxed grip on the bow handle. Then she turns the bow so that it is horizontal and the arrow rest is facing upwards. She positions the fingers on the string with the index finger above the arrow and two fingers below. The string should sit in the last crease of her fingers (nearest to the fingertips). Using her dominant eye, she looks down the <a href="https://rumble.com/v4d8xx-explosive-black-balloon-pop-gender-reveal.html" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:arrow" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">arrow</a> and aligns it with her target. Check out as this woman manages to catch the rose arrow in her mouth after it's being shot. The girl takes her position bent at the knees and ready to jump sideways if the arrow happens to fly to an unexpected direction. The other girl responsible for the shot, doesn’t take long before she fires away. No sooner we say “Go!” we see how the rose darts in the air, and the girl moves her body just a bit on the left so that the rose can go straight into her mouth. Both girls feel triumphant and proud of the trick waving happily with the rose at the camera.

The International Olympic Committee on Wednesday awarded the 2024 summer Olympic Games to Paris and the 2028 edition to Los Angeles following a vote in the Peruvian capital. Paris, which has hosted two previous Olympics, will stage the event 100 years after its last Games in 1924 while Los Angeles will also organise its third Games after 1932 and 1984. There were no other candidates for either the 2024 or 2028 Games and the votes were a formality. IOC President Thomas Bach said the votes for both cities were "unanimous".

Los Angeles then dropped its bid for the 2024 Olympics, for which it had been campaigning for over two years, in return for receiving the 2028 edition. Paris, with a total Games budget of 6.8 billion euros ($8.09 billion), had failed with previous attempts to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

The Los Angeles 2028 Games, with a budget of $5.3 billion, will essentially follow the plan they had in place for 2024, including housing athletes at the UCLA campus. It is the first time the IOC has awarded a Games 11 years in advance. The Olympic body, however, was eager to secure the future of its prime product even if it meant handing out two editions at the same time after Boston, Budapest, Rome and Hamburg all pulled the plug on their bids mid-race, fearing high costs and local opposition.
