LONDON - There's not much left for Kim Rhode to do in her Olympic career. She's the only U.S. athlete to win five medals in five consecutive Games. The shooter from El Monte is also the first female to compete in all three shotgun disciplines at the Olympics. And moments after finishing ninth in the women's trap event, with her gold medal in women's skeet secured days earlier, she indicated she intends to compete in Rio four years from now.

LONDON — There was such hope for the U.S. archers, especially after the men's team opened play with a silver medal. But things dissolved fast as their best hope for an individual medal — Brady Ellison — lost in the round of 16 to Taylor Worth of Australia, 112-106. Ellison was on a roll entering the Games. He won his last eight World Cup events and finished third in last year's world championship. Jacob Wukie and Jake Kaminski both went out in the round of 32. The remaining U.S. hope is on the women's side, where Khatuna Lorig has advanced to the round of eight.

They meander through shady groves and desert terrain in Big Tujunga Canyon, stalk stationary targets and shoot at them with bows and arrows. These modern-day warriors are members of the Verdugo Hills Archers, a 46-year-old club based in Sunland-Tujunga that is keeping alive the ancient sport of archery and passing it on to the next generation. "I like to pull the arrow back, watch it in flight and see it hit the spot," said Jerry Hart, the club's historian and chairman of the board of directors.

I uncase my bow, its beauty to behold, I sense the power in its limbs, ready to unfold, I string the bow and check it for its tune. It responds, in knowing that we shall be singing soon. I face the target, my feet in place. I nock the arrow, its course soon to race. I draw the bow and anchor fast. Sighting now, the shot to cast. I now look for placement of the shot. The scoring points really matter now. We have shot and now are done. The bow, the arrow and I are one.

Most athletes suffer embarrassment en route to becoming winners, but Jennifer Peavy was literally losing face. If it takes blood, sweat and tears to get to the top, Peavy at least had the first part mastered. Peavy, 17, an archer who recently graduated from Kennedy High School, has won the intermediate (under 18) division title in the last six major tournaments she entered. But every title required a bandage.

An attorney for Olympic archer Justin Huish argued in court Wednesday that the gold medalist should not be held on drug-sale charges because he was providing marijuana for the treatment of an HIV patient. But that defense, raised during Huish's preliminary hearing, met a quick objection from a Ventura County prosecutor who said state law allows only qualified caregivers to treat medical marijuana patients.

They're sharpshooting, quick-thinking, goal-achieving women. But on Wednesday, all they could do was blush. In a send-off fit for a departing army, the city of El Monte honored and--at times--overwhelmed two of its residents who are headed for the Olympics, skeet shooter Kim Rhode and archer Janet Dykman.

Jay Barrs has a beef. He's the best archer in the United States, a 30-year-old athlete from Mesa, Ariz., who won a gold medal in 1988 at Seoul and now would like another one. But the parameters of his competition have been changed. "They've screwed it all up for TV," Barrs said Saturday after qualifying 12th in the 30-meter individual competition. Eight years ago in Los Angeles, the 30-meter champion was decided after each competitor shot 288 arrows. The best score won, pure and simple.

I'm behind a Honda Element with three bullet holes across the back. You guessed it - West L.A., specifically that gritty stretch near the Overland exit. No, I don't know for sure that they are real bullet holes. But in this end of town, I just assume everything I see is authentic. I am on my way to Hunger Games Training, a Saturday class in the Cheviot Hills Recreation Center, near Fox Studios. Archery. Self-defense. Primping. Sarcasm. The four horsemen of the Apocalypse. If you were looking at how to behave during some sort of cataclysmic meltdown, where better to learn?

Archery had long been relegated to the realm of men in tights, apples atop heads and junior high summer camp. Then came "The Hunger Games. " The hit young-adult trilogy debuted in 2008, starring a heroine in a post-apocalyptic future who wields a bow and arrow to survive in gladiator-style contests. Key to the plots are several of Katniss Everdeen's dramatic shots and the increasingly advanced designs of her bows and arrows (including explosive shafts), as well as the rebellious symbolism of her archery skills.

Reporting from Yosemite National Park -- Winter in the high country is usually a season of icy quiet. Birds leave, bears hibernate, and only a few hardy people on skis or snowshoes pass through en route to snow-covered granite domes. But Christmas and New Year's Day came and went, then Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, and still only auburn pine needles covered the ground. Chattering squirrels, normally tucked away in their winter nests, perched on top of "Snow Play Area" signs, with no snow in sight.

When Stephen Ralphs was 5 years old, he was given a copy of "The Adventures of Robin Hood." Fifty years later, he found himself on Russell Crowe's farm in Australia giving private archery lessons in preparation for director Ridley Scott's movie "Robin Hood." "From the age of 5, I wanted to be Robin Hood," said Ralphs, who lives on the medieval archery ground of the village of Kenninghall in Norfolk, England. "It was something that never left me, the idea of this outlaw who had the longbow, and he didn't like to be told what to do. It's an attitude.
