This badass toddler smashed a national archery record in India

Meanwhile, at 25, I'm still spilling Cheerios on myself.

Dolly Shivani Cherukuri is 3 years old, but before her birthday, she became the youngest person to score more than 200 points at a trial event. Not only did she surpass the 200 mark, she destroyed it, scoring 388 points off of 72 arrows.

The toddler already has a training regimen that could rival most professional athletes. Special light-weight carbon arrows were designed for her, and she trained for "two or three hours a day," according to Telegraph UK.

And if you're worried about safety, fear not. Dolly's father, Cherukuri Satyanarayana, runs an archery academy in India and trained his young protégé. He also made sure she wasn't overworked. Her training sessions maxed out at three hours a day.

Dolly's record now stands in the India Book of Records.

If you need us, we'll be over here feeling bad about what we've done with our lives.
