Chess on Ice, as some call it, was invented in Scotland more than 500 years ago.
TULSA - Historically, archery was used for hunting and combat, but now it's a recreational sport, and one of the 32 Olympic events.
In the London Games, there were four archery events; Men's Individual, Women's Individual, Men's Team, Women's Team.
The competition has ended, but for some archery has become "the new curling" as one NBC executive called it last week. The cable ratings were huge and some attribute the sport's rise in popularity to the recent The Hunger Games movie.
Many of you asked for Big Al or me to give archery a shot, so I stepped up to try my hand as an archer or bowman. That's what you're called when you participate in the sport.

Dale Cooley of the Tulsa Archery Association was my coach for the day, and despite his instruction, I didn't start out too well.
But with Dale's help, I steadied my hand and started getting a little closer to the target, eventually getting a little closer to the bulls-eye. Closer, I said. I didn't actually hit the bulls-eye.
Once outside, we started shooting from 30 yards. Dale said the Olympians shoot from almost 80 yards.
In case you missed it, Team USA won the silver medal in the team competition.
Check out the video to see how I did. If you're reading this on your phone or iPad go to our Video section to watch me in action.

You're out on an icy island, being attacked by hard rubber disks that are frozen before games to make them even harder.
In 2012, Big Al and Cayden McFarland tried their hand at some of the more popular summer game events. Two years later, they're back giving the winter games a go
Tulsan Hans Helmrich has been a sports fan all his life. So you could imagine his excitement when at age 13, he was picked to be a ball-boy for the USA Men's basketball team for the Olympics.
Shots from the top of the key. Shots from behind the backboard. Shots that were bounced off the floor. Ivory Latta of the Tulsa Shock simply couldn't miss!
The 100-meter dash pits the world's eight fastest men together as they race for the title of "World's Fastest Man." That's not something Big Al nor I will be confused with. But it didn't stop us from trying!
The cable ratings for archery were huge and some attribute the sport's rise in popularity to the recent The Hunger Games movie.
The sport of high jump changed forever back in 1968. That's when Dick Fosbury came up with the jump that bears his name - the Fosbury Flop. So, that begs the question, can Big Al and Cayden pull it off?
The backstroke looks like it's a nice leisurely stroke, with the opportunity to possibly catch some rays at the same time. Not quite.
