Archer to appear on Leno show

kristinbraun.jpgIt’s rare when someone in the shooting sports gets any exposure on network television, much less a segment on Jay Leno’s show.

So tune in tonight (Nov. 5) if you want to get a glimpse of 19-year-old Kristin Braun, a member of the 2009 USA Archery World Championship team. Braun will appear alongside Leno, actress Wanda Sykes and food maven Rachael Ray. Early word from NBC is that she’ll be asked to shoot suction-cup arrows at a Plexiglas shield positioned in front of Sykes’ face to try to make the actress flinch.

Kinda makes me wish they’d treat Olympic-style archery just a little more seriously, but any publicity is better than none.
