After spending the past few days in Atlanta rapping with the likes of First Daughter Chelsea Clinton, Simi Valley's Justin Huish dusts of his $3,000 bow today for the first round of the men's archery competition.
Huish, 21, attended Simi Valley High, Moorpark College and Arizona State. He is one of the top contenders for the gold medal.
The archer, who hardly goes anywhere without his backward baseball cap, met Chelsea on Wednesday as the two crossed paths.
