Watch: ‘Pole dancing archer’ gets almost 9m likes on TikTok

We meet Leeds Lab Technician David Balcer-Whittle who has accumulated over 400,000 followers and almost 9 million likes on TikTok by sharing his love of pole fitness combined with fantasy archery. He can shoot targets whilst spinning, jumping onto the pole from a distance and shooting while upside-down, and also mimicking animals like a frog and a flamingo. David, who has been an avid archer since the age 15, got into pole dancing in his 20s, but had never thought to combine them.
