Horseback archery: Malaysians take a shot at ancient pastime

Riding a galloping horse under the blazing sun, Malaysian archer Zaharudin Rastam Yeop Mahidin fires an arrow at a target as a crowd cheers. This is horseback archery, which was common for thousands of years in hunting and warfare but declined with the introduction of firearms and other modern combat gear. Now it is getting a revival as a niche sport, gaining a growing following in Malaysia and among a small number of enthusiasts worldwide. Wearing a traditional outfit associated with the country's ethnic Malay Muslim majority, Zaharudin was one of 28 riders competing at a tournament in central Rembau district.

Caution: spoilers ahead for Hawkeye episodes 1 & 2. Who can truly claim the title of best archer in the MCU after Hawkeye premiered on Disney+ – Clint Barton, or Kate Bishop? Forever the least popular Avenger, Hawkeye could previously take comfort in being the world’s greatest archery expert. Few characters in the MCU are bold enough to carry a bow and arrow into battle against literal Gods, but Hawkeye’s trick shots and innovative arrows ensured his position as the most accurate MCU superstar. Only Taskmaster provides limp competition to Clint’s crown, but her inferior jack-of-all-trades skill set means Hawkeye makes up for his terrible branding by being the franchise’s foremost Robin Hood impersonator.
