The United States has not won gold in archery at the Paralympics since 1984.

Both of those droughts ended with wheelchair-bound archer Jeff Fabry. Using a dog leash and his teeth, Fabry shot past his competition at the London Paralympics.

John Hockenberry spoke with Fabry before his win, who modestly looks at himself not as a champion but as a work-in-progress.
