Who Is Folkers Herholdt?

I started archery as a young boy having no influence from anybody I knew personally. I saw archery in magazines and felt that archery will be a great part of my life. My love for archery grew stronger over the years. Simply seeing a 3D target or Field target in the field or woods on its own made me happy. I mainly started as a 3D archer and later in my career I tried the World Archery Outdoor archery too, I liked it even though I felt that I had a lot of work to do to be any good in that style of shooting. So today I see myself as a allrounder archer focusing on particular shoots that I want to be competative in.
