In our Dream Jobs series, we showcase people who have the jobs we coveted as kids. For most of us, life got in the way. Then there are people such as Joe Fanchin.

Fanchin is the 4th-ranked archer in the U.S. and is pursuing his dream of Olympic gold. With the London Olympics just a few months away, our Dream Jobs reporter Jed Kim went down to Chula Vista to watch Fanchin in action.
