Make America's Team Great Again

What kind of competition are you talking about? There are many and I know there are some where people use nothing but this kind of release. Is that olympic style bullseye?The string is behind the riser in every bow I know of. The thumb release pushes the string in the opposite direction from a conventional grip so the arrow is placed on the opposite side. The only competiitve shooter using that method I've heard of is Joel Turner. He has his bows made right handed with a left handed shelf to account for it.
I didn't check, but the string would have to be behind the riser on these bows too because they are ambidextrous. But if I understand the technique right the bow is twisted out of the way on the release so the arrow doesn't have to go around it.
Just curious, are you saying this as someone who is familiar with the mongol methods, or is it purely theoretical? Maybe you're being too literal with the word solve. As far as I know no technique, including shoot through systems or crossbows have completely eliminated it.The shelf is to reduce the offset and a place for the arrow to rest while waiting to fire.
They haven't solved literally anything. The physics problem still exists.
