Best-selling writer Paulo Coelho dedicated his latest book The Archer to Turkish Olympic champion Mete Gazoz.

"Mete Gazoz ... This is my first book dedicated to you. Prodigy of archery," the Brazilian author said in a video posted to Twitter.

Coelho, who is best known for his novel "the Alchemist" wrote The Archer in 2013 and the book was published in an e-book under the Portuguese title O Caminho Do Arco.

In The Archer, arch master Tetsuya, who lives as a humble carpenter in a village is challenged by an archer from distant lands. The master accepts the challenge and transfers his archery philosophy to both the foreign archer and one of the village’s young men.

Gazoz claimed gold after beating Italy’s Mauro Nespoli in the men's individual archery final at Tokyo 2020. The 22-year-old brought Turkey its first-ever Olympic medal in archery.
