Matt Stutzman: 9:00 a.m.
Iowan Matt Stutzman, dubbed the Armless Archer, was born inexplicably without arms in 1982. Though he was fitted with prosthetic arms at a young age, he never felt comfortable using them and found the prosthetics cumbersome and unnatural. Instead, he chose to adapt to his disability and learn how to accomplish everyday tasks in his own way.
Today, Stutzman can accomplish nearly anything with his feet, including driving, writing, eating, playing the guitar and working on cars. Over the years Stutzman also developed an extraordinary ability with the bow and arrow. In 2011, Stutzman’s talent earned him the world record for the longest accurate archery shot after hitting a target from 230 yards away. More recently he became a silver medalist in archery at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. During his keynote address, Stutzman will discuss the obstacles he has faced in overcoming his disability and will demonstrate some of his remarkable foot skills that you do not want to miss!
