Takaharu Furukawa took the silver medal in men’s archery at the London Olympics, earning Japan’s first medal in the event since 2004, after a defeat to South Korean Oh Jin Hyek in the final Friday.

Oh built an early 4-0 lead before tying the third set but never trailed as he outshot Furukawa for a final score of 7-1 at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
