GD: Learning to play catcher. My shins and my forearms were covered in baseball-shaped bruises.
SI: How did you get started in archery?
GD: I watched the coverage of [gold medalist] Justin Huish at the '96 Olympics. When they showed him shooting from across the street into his yard, I thought, That's really cool, and it's something you can practice at home.
SI: What was it like to qualify for the Olympic trials after competing for such a short time?
GD: It was awesome. But every time I scratched my nose, 50 cameras went off. I was a wreck.
SI: Are you still shooting for the 2004 Games?
GD: No, I'm going to have to look toward Beijing. When my daughter is a little older, I definitely want to get back to it. I still haven't found out how good I can get at it.
