Do you feel this variation of Archery game can be introduced
as a Good Olympics Sport in future ?
Game Description : To win the hand of Draupadi, Arjuna has to shoot the eye of a fish that's on a revolving platform while aiming using a mirror. That Arjuna was a good archer.
A Revolving Platform holding a fish say kept at 8-10-12 feet above the ground and moving at 10-15 revolutions per minute.
A Archer will look down at the mirror on the Ground and hit the fish eye.
More the Revolutions per minute, more the speed, hence more difficult to hit the fish eye.
Can we also use a Reflecting Pool as a medium instead of a mirror at the ground ?
We have to Standardize the following to make it a Global Sport/Game.
1. The Revolving Object kept at how much distance from the Ground level
i.e. 10, 15, 20, 30 etc feet ?
2. Fish Toy Target Material -> Plastic, Wood etc.
The Fish Toy Can be also replaced by Concentric Circles Target Medium currently used in Archery Olympics Games.
3. Reflecting Surface on the Ground -> Mirror , Reflecting Pool etc
4. Number Of Revolutions per minute - 10, 20, 30 RPM speed the Revolving Object Moves.
Once this are globally standardized, this can be considered a good archery variation sport.
This Game would be more challenging for a Archer than the current Archery Sport played at the Olympics ?
