Archery is truly a historic sport – a contest of mind and body control, as well as precision – and has roots dating back to its use as a weapon of hunting and war in ancient times.
Archery first entered the Olympic programme at Paris 1900 before a break of 52 years between 1920 and 1972. The sport has been present at the Games ever since with recurve the only archery discipline featured.
Olympic archers shoot at a 122cm-diameter target from a distance of 70m. To achieve maximum marks they must hit the gold centre ring – the bulls-eye - measuring just 12cm.
