You have to point the bow at a 45 degree angle.
A 14-year-old boy has broken an adult world record in Flight Archery.
Zak Crawford from Corby shot an arrow to a distance of 484.29 metres, which is nearly 13 metres further than the previous record.
He also broke records in two other categories in the Northern Counties Flight Championships at RAF Church Fenton.
Though Flight Archery is not an Olympic sport, Zak is still going to try for the 2012 games in target shooting.
Zak initially started with target shooting, but was later introduced to Flight Archery.
He said: "One of my Grandad's friends does a bit of Flight Archery and he took me to a competition, I tried it and quite liked it."
Flight Archery is sometimes referred to as the Formula 1 of the sport.
Competitors have to use a particular size and weight of bow and arrows that are specifically designed to fly for long periods in the air.
At the same event, Zak also broke two junior records and in future he aims to smash his record.
"I want to try and get past 600 metres, that will be a really hard target to break and will take a lot of work but I'll go for it," he said.
