Jake Kaminski was shooting for this summer’s London Olympics, and he’s right on target to compete as a member of team USA.

Kaminski is one of six archers to have been nominated after an intense 10-month tryout period, AroundTheRings.com reports. Although Kaminski has won numerous prestigious archery competitions, this will be his first time representing America at the Olympics—pending drug results and other preliminary procedures.

He tweeted Sunday night:

Two hours later, he added:

In his blog, which hasn’t been updated since 2009, Kaminski explains, “I am training full time, over 70 hours a week under Kisik Lee shooting archery in hopes of making an Olympic Team and becoming Olympic Champion.”

Kaminski said via Twitter that he was born in Buffalo and raised in Elma. Best wishes to our hometown Olympian.
