Archery

Shooting at a target 122 centimeters in diameter from 70 meters away, archery requires immense focus and concentration. After a hiatus beginning in 1920, the sport became a permanent part of the Olympics from 1972 and consists of individual, team and mixed team competitions. Individual competition begins with a ranking competition where athletes are ranked between one and 64.

In individual competition, matches are made based off of their rankings with the first-ranked player facing the 64th player, the second-ranked player facing the 63rd and so on. The matches consist of sets of three arrows per archer. The player who has the higher points in each set is awarded two set points and the first player to attain six set points wins the match. A tie sees both archers receive one point.

For team competitions, the tournament draws for 12 countries are decided on three players’ combined points in the ranking round. In the sets, each athlete shoots two arrows apiece and the team with the higher six-point total wins the set and the team that reaches 5 points wins the match.
Archery events will take place from July 23 to 31.
