Overview

Since the revival of archery on the Olympic stage in 1972, the sport has been held in some scenic, historic or iconic venues, and 2016 was no exception. In Rio de Janeiro, the [Sambódromo], hosted in its southern section, the same four events as in London 2012: men'€™s and women'€™s individual and team events. The Sambadrome da Marquês de Sapucaí was designed by the famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, and opened in 1894 as the grandstand street in the city center, where the parade and competition of Rio'€™s samba schools, called Desfile, is held during the Carnival. The original symmetrical setting intended by the architect was completed by adding grandstands to bring the overall capacity to 90.000.

As in London 2012, the distance between the archer and the target was 70 m. The diameter of the target was 1.22 m with scores from one to ten. Matches in the elimination tournament were decided over five sets of three arrows. The winner of each set getting two points with one point each for a tie and nothing for the loser. If matches were tied, a single arrow shoot-out would decide the winner, the closest arrow to the center determining the victor.

The competitions in Rio confirmed the Korean Olympic archery superiority that had prevailed since 1988. For the first time, all four gold medals (and one bronze medal), went to Korea. In second place was the United States with one silver and one bronze medal. Of the previously strong nations, Russia won just one silver, while Italy and the People'€™s Republic of China returned empty handed. The four golds in Rio made archery Korea'€™s most successful sport overtaking short track speed skating at the Winter Olympics.

  The archery events at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro were held over a seven-day period from 6 to 12 August. Four events took place, all were staged at the Sambadrome Marquês de Sapucaí.

Competition format

A total of 128 athletes compete across the four events: the men's individual, women's individual, men's team and women's team.

All four events were recurve archery events, held under the World Archery-approved 70-meter distance and rules. The competition started with an initial ranking round involving all 64 archers of each gender. Each archer would shoot a total of 72 arrows to be seeded from 1–64 according to their score.

The ranking round was also used to seed the teams from 1 to 12, by aggregating the individual scores for the members of each team.

Each event was played in a single-elimination tournament format, except for the semi-final losers, who would play off to decide the bronze medal winner.

Individual events

In the individual events, all 64 competitors entered the competition at the first round, the round of 64. The draw was seeded according to the result of the ranking round so the first seed shot against the 64th seed in the first round.

Each match was scored using the Archery Olympic Round, consisting of the best-of-five sets, with three arrows per set. The winner of each set received two points, and if the scores in the set had tied then each archer would have received one point. If at the end of five sets the score had been tied at 5–5, a single arrow shoot-off would have held and the closest to the center would be declared the winner.

Team events

In the team events, the top four seeded teams from the ranking round will receive a bye to the quarter-final. The remaining eight teams, seeded 5th to 12th, will compete for the remaining four places in the quarter-finals.

For the first time, the team event has followed the same Archery Olympic Round set system as the individual event.

Men's Individual

 Host City: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Venue(s): Sambadrome, Rio de Janeiro
Date Started: August 5, 2016
Date Finished: August 12, 2016
Format: Ranking round consisted of 72 arrows at 70 m. Matches consisted of up to 5 sets of 3 arrows, first player to reach 6 points. Tie-breaking for the final placements was done by the following method. Losers in each round were ranked according to the score they shot in that round. Matches shot entirely at 70 metres.

Summary

Despite having only one archer in the semi-finals, [Ku Bon-Chan] secured the fourth gold of the Games for Korea. He had two close matches in the quarter-final and semi-final against Australia'€™s [Taylor Worth] and American [Brady Ellison] respectively, winning both with one-arrow tie-breakers after 5-5 ties. Ku also needed five sets against [Jean-Charles Valladont] in the final despite looking like the easy winner after three sets. He had already celebrated victory, when one of Valladont'€™s arrows was upgraded in score, bringing the overall score to 5-1 and reviving the Frenchman'€™s hopes. Valladont won the fourth set to get to within two points of the Ku at 3-5, but some eights by the Frenchman enabled the Korean to get back on the winning track as Ku took the fifth set 27-26 and with it the gold medal. Brady Ellison took bronze after beating his neighbour in the world ranking list, the Netherland'€™s [Sjef van den Berg], 6-2. This was Ellison'€™s first individual medal after two team silver medals in 2012 and 2016. Another Korean, [Kim Woo-Jin], who set new World and Olympic records in the ranking round, was beaten in the last 32 by [Riau Ega Agatha] from Indonesia. Kim, who came to Rio as top of the world rankings, was one of two of the top six ranked archers not to reach the semi-final, despite his impressive performance in the ranking round.

The men's individual archery event was one of 4 archery events at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The medals were presented by Uğur Erdener, IOC member, Turkey and Tom Dielen, Secretary General of the World Archery Federation.

Competition format

As with the other archery events, the men's individual was a recurve archery event, held under the World Archery-approved 70-meter distance and rules. 64 archers participated.

The knockout matches used the set system introduced in 2012. Each match consisted of up to 5 sets of 3 arrows per archer. The archer with the best score in each set won the set, earning 2 points. If the score was tied, each archer received 1 point. The first archer to 6 points won the match. If the match was tied 5-5 after 5 sets, a single tie-breaker arrow was used with the closest to center winning.

Venue(s): Sambadrome, Rio de Janeiro
Date Started: August 5, 2016
Date Finished: August 6, 2016

Summary

The men'€™s team was the first medal event in archery at the Rio Olympics, just one day after the opening ceremony. Current world champions Korea had won nine of the last 11 world titles as well as four of the seven previous Olympic gold medals, which made them favorites for Rio. The three team members included numbers one, two and six in the world rankings, and the winners of the last three individual world titles.

The Korean men regained their crown with a win in the final against the United States, thus avenging defeat by the Americans in the 2012 semi-final. The victory of the Korean men was more impressive than that of the women, as they defeated all their opponents, Netherlands, Australia and the United States, in the elimination matches with the highest possible margin of 6-0 on each occasion. After the ranking round (216 arrows) the Koreans shot 2057 points with the second placed US team trailing by 33 points. In the final, [Kim Woo-Jin], [Lee Seung-Yun] and [Ku Bon-Chan] started with six tens in a perfect first set and closed the match with consecutive sets of 58 and 59. Individual bronze medalist and world'€™s fourth ranked [Brady Ellison] led the United States to the silver medal. In the bronze medal match, Australia defeated PR China in four sets to win the country'€™s first ever team medal in archery. Defending Olympic champions Italy lost 0-6 in the quarter-final against PR China.

 The men's team archery event was one of 4 archery events at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Competition format

As with the other archery events, the men's team was a recurve archery event, held under the World Archery-approved 70-meter distance and rules. 12 teams of 3 archers each participated. Competition began with a ranking round, in which each archer shot 72 arrows (this was the same ranking round used for the individual event). The combined scores from the ranking round were used to seed the teams into a single-elimination bracket, with the top 4 teams receiving a bye into the second round (quarterfinals). Each match consisted four sets of 6 arrows, two per archer. The team with the highest score in the set – the total of the six arrows – receives two set points; if the teams are tied, each receives one set point. The first team to five set points wins the match.[1]
