Huish won gold medals in the men's individual and team competitions at the 1996 Summer Olympics. He had a somewhat dramatic appearance, with wraparound shades, a backward baseball cap, a ponytail, and an earring. His performance was later credited with encouraging Geena Davis to take up archery.
Huish earned a spot to compete at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, but he was arrested on February 15, 2000, and charged with possession of marijuana for sale. He subsequently resigned his place on the Olympic team and was replaced by Rod White. Huish pleaded no contest in May 2001 and was sentenced to 120 days in jail, serving about three months of that in a work furlough program.
He tried out for the 2004 Olympics but failed to make the U.S. team.
