“I’m not just a shooter, I’m an athlete. I’m a thinker. I’m all that. Whatever I think–I can get my body to do.” Jay Lim is an amateur shooter who believes his natural abilities can earn him the Top Shot title. Boastful? Maybe. But this golf instructor can back it up. He has competed in archery events on a national level, once taking him all the way to the 2004 Olympic Trials. And he doesn’t just excel at archery–Jay competes with the air pistol, air rifle, skeet and handgun. He’s a self-described over-achiever who loves marksmanship because “there is perfection in shooting, and that is what I strive for.”
