Have you ever jumped off a building? Have you been on the US Archery Team or competed in more than 120 professional archery events worldwide? Have you ever been shot at? For that matter, have you ever been shot. Today on Gritty I’m joined by two remarkable human beings. There are few people who can lay claim to the accomplishments that these men have achieved in their respective areas of expertise. My guests today are John Dudley, Professional Archer and passionate bowhunter, and Andy Stumpf, retired Navy Seal and the man who jumps off buildings.
John Dudley started shooting professionally in 1997 and has competed all over the world. John has 45 Career Top 3 Professional Finishes.
Here are just a few of Johns professional accomplishments:
APA Rookie of the Year
IBO National Champion (2x)
NABH National Champion
AZ International Gold Medalist
European Grand Prix Gold Medalist
World Field Championship Bronze
In short, John knows how to shoot a bow. And more than that, John has knack for teaching his craft to others.
Andy Stumpf executed hundreds of combat operations throughout the world over his 17-year career in the military. He was medically retired in June of 2013. His awards and decorations include 5 Bronze Star Medals (four with valor). The Purple Heart, The Joint Service Commnedation Medal. The Navy and Marine Corp Commendation Medal with Valor, Three Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medals, Two Combat Action Ribbons, and The Presidential Unit Citation.
In 2015 he set two world records after jumping from 36,500 feet and flying over 18 miles in a wingsuit in an effort to raise 1 million dollars for the Navy Seal Foundation.
Okay, there you have it folks—these two gentlemen are unique. Each have excelled in their chosen endeavors. They’re both able to govern their fear, manage their heart rate, and perform under extreme pressure. And we talk about this and much more on today’s podcast. It’s good stuff!
