Some of them picked up the bow but could not string it, and so they threw it aside in frustration. Some managed to pull the bowstring toward the tip of the bow, only to have the bow spring back and knock them to the ground.

SB 10.83.23
sajyam krtvapare vira
bhimo duryodhanah karno
 navidams tad-avasthitim

A few heroes — namely Jarasandha, Sisupala, Bhima, Duryodhana, Karna and the King of Ambastha — succeeded in stringing the bow, but none of them could find the target.

These kings were very strong physically, but they were not skillful enough to find the target.
