Axe-throwing league taking aim in Toronto

It's somewhat similar to darts except competitors use axes to hurl at a target.

“I feel like everybody on earth wants to do this. They just don’t know it yet," said Matthew Wilson, founder of Backyard Axe Throwing League.

Wilson started the sport in his backyard and is about to expand to an 8,000 square foot space in Toronto’s east end.

The CBC’s Peter Armstrong looks at this new growing sport.
