 Archery is an exciting sport that is growing in popularity. Anyone can participate, man, woman or child. To be successful as an athlete in this sport requires years of practice and development of both mental and physical skills. Archers develop techniques to fully control their body movement, their endurance and their mental steadiness, when preparing to meet the challenge of match days.

Description
The Olympic Archery competition takes place outdoors, in the following four categories of events:

Competitors shoot standing, aiming to land their arrow in the smallest (central) circle, 12cm in diameter, on a target face 122cm in diameter, placed 70m away. The target consists often coloured concentric circles known as "rings". An arrow in the innermost circle (the bull's eye) counts for ten points, whereas an arrow in the outermost circle (the "outer") for one. An arrow landing successfully in a ring between these two is worth from two to nine points.
The Archery competition in the ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games was held at the highprofile Competition Venue, the historic Panathinaiko Stadium.

Venue

The Panathinaiko Stadium, widely known as "Kallimarmaro", is the stadium where the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. Even in ancient years, the area where the Panathinaiko (or Panathenian) Stadium stands today was largely used to host the Panathenean Games, festival events that were held to honour the Greek goddess Athena (the goddess of wisdom, skills and warfare and patron of the city of Athens in ancient Greece). The time had come to serve once again as one of the competition venues for this great sporting event, the 2004 Olympic Games. The renovations that took place under the responsibility of the General Secretariat of Sports and the Ministry of Culture, included upgrades and modifications on its infrastructure, mainly in the scope of restoration of the monument, configuration of the track and surrounding areas, incorporation of lighting and establishment of fire-fighting systems. During the ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games Archery competition, the Stadium's total capacity was 34.500 for the Marathon finish and 7.500 for Archery, in which 128 athletes participated. The stadium's unique atmosphere, combined with the vocal crowds, inspired all competitors to excel in their endeavours.

Archery at the 2004 Summer Olympics was held at Panathinaiko Stadium in Athens, Greece with ranking rounds on 12 August and regular competition held from 15 August to 21 August. One hundred twenty-eight archers from forty-three nations competed in the four gold medal events—individual and team events for men and for women—that were contested at these games.

The stadium, often called Kallimarmaro, is notable as the site of the first Olympic Games and even earlier, where the Ancient Greeks' Panathenean Games were hosted. At the behest of James Easton, president of the International Archery Federation, archery events were held in the historic stadium, hoping that its history and natural beauty would attract the public to the sport. Laurence Godfrey, the fourth-place finisher in the men's individual event, remarked that the stadium inspired pride, while American Vic Wunderle spoke for most of the archers in saying, "It's a great honor and a privilege to be able to compete inside the 1896 Olympic Stadium."

The Korean team won three out of the four gold medals contested. Four Olympic records and several other world records were broken at these games, despite poor weather conditions during the preliminary rounds of competition.

Qualification and format

There were four ways for National Olympic Committees (NOCs) to qualify individual archers for the Olympics in archery. For each gender, the host nation (Greece) was guaranteed three spots. The 2003 World Target Competition's top 8 teams (not including the host nation) each received three spots, and the 19 highest ranked archers after the team qualifiers were removed also received spots. Fifteen of the remaining eighteen spots were divided equally among the five Olympic continents for allocation in continental tournaments. The last three spots in each gender were determined by the Tripartite Commission. Sixty-four archers of each sex took part in the Olympics, with each NOC being able to enter a maximum of three archers.

For all archery events at the Olympics, archers stand 70 metres from their target. The target consists of concentric circles, and has a total diameter of 122 cm. Archers earn points based on which circle their arrow landed in, with ten points awarded for hitting the center circle, and one point awarded for hitting the outermost circle. During the ranking rounds, each archer shot twelve ends, or groups, of six arrows per end. The score from that round determined the match-ups in the elimination rounds, with high-ranking archers facing low-ranking archers. 

The first three rounds of elimination used six ends of three arrows, narrowing the field of archers from 64 to 8. The three final rounds (quarterfinals, semifinals, and medal matches) each used four ends of three arrows. Thirteen men's and fifteen women's teams competed in the team competitions. The teams consisted of the country's three archers from the individual round, and the team's initial ranking was determined by summing the three members' scores in the individual ranking round. Each round of eliminations consisted of each team firing 27 arrows (9 by each archer).

Event summary

For the sixth Olympics in a row, the South Korean team came out as the clear victor, taking three out of the four gold medals in Athens. Korean archers set new world records in the women's individual (Park Sung-hyun) and team (Park, Yun Mi-Jin, and Lee Sung-Jin) ranking rounds and the men's individual ranking round (Im Dong Hyun),though none of those scores counted as Olympic records because the ranking round was held before the opening ceremony. Olympic records were broken in both the men's and women's 36-arrow 1/16 and 1/8 rounds combined (by Chen Szu Yuan of Chinese Taipei and Yun of Korea), as well as in the men's 18-arrow match (by Park Kyung Mo of Korea) and 36-arrow finals rounds combined (by Tim Cuddihy of Australia).

This historic stadium has given me strength, because it is a great feeling to see the Acropolis next to you.

— Wietse van Alten

In the men's events, the Korean team shot 12 maximum scores of 10 to win the gold medal against Chinese Taipei 251-245. Losing by two points, the United States failed to fend of the Ukraine team to capture the bronze.[8] The event causing the most upset however was the men's individual, the only event that the Korean team has never won and yet again failed to clinch. Defending champion Simon Fairweather was ousted from the competition in a first round loss due to blustery weather conditions.[7] The wind caused some archers like Fairweather to make one-point shots, and its strength even caused others to miss their targets completely. The final matches of this event also saw competitors coming close in score, with Italian Marco Galiazzo beating the Japanese Hiroshi Yamamoto by only two points to win gold. Even closer still was the bronze medal match, in which Britain's Laurence Godfrey was outshot 112-113 by seventeen-year-old Australian Tim Cuddihy, who himself only managed to get into the semifinals by one point.

The woman's individual event fell easily to the Koreans; they have won this event continuously since the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and swept all three medals at the 2000 Olympics. Though both gold and silver fell to Korean archers, Alison Williamson captured the bronze medal, giving Britain its first medal in archery since 1992. In the team event, the Korean women beat the Chinese team 241-240 to win the gold medal, making this their eleventh straight women's team championship win. Chinese Taipei easily took the bronze medal over France.

Men's Individual

 Host City: Athina, Greece
Venue(s): Dekelia Archery Field, Akharnes; Panathenaic Stadium, Athina
Date Started: August 12, 2004
Date Finished: August 19, 2004
Format: Ranking round consisted of 72 arrows at 70 m. Matches in rounds 1-3 consisted of 16 arrows. Matches in the quarter-finals, semi-finals, and final round consisted of 12 arrows. 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. Ties in that round were broken by the number of 10s shot in that round and then the number of 9s shot in that round. If still tied the score in the preceding round was used as the tie-breaker, followed by number of 10s, and then number of 9s in the preceding round. Matches shot entirely at 70 metres.

Summary

Korea'€™s men archers were the best in the world, having won four of the last five World Championships both individually and in team competition. But they had been the best since around 1990 and had yet to have a male archer win an individual Olympic gold medal. This would continue in 2004, as, despite their three archers placing in the top five in the ranking round, none of them made the semi-finals, and they were shut-out of the medals.

In the lower half of the draw, Italy'€™s [Marco Galiazzo] advanced to the quarter-finals, where he faced the 2000 silver medalist, American [Vic Wunderle]. Galiazzo had been 2001 World Junior Champion and was the 2004 European Champion and had placed third in the ranking round and dispatched Wunderle 109-108, coming back to win on the final arrows. The final matched Galiazzo against Japan'€™s [Hiroshi Yamamoto], a 41-year-old high school teacher. Yamamoto had won a bronze medal in the Olympic individual event in 1984, and competed at every Olympics from 1984-96. He failed to qualify in 2000 and tried to retire from the sport, but came back when his students encouraged him. Galiazzo continued his magical 2004 by defeating Yamamoto 111-109 for the gold medal.

 In the Men's Individual competition PARK set a new 18-arrow Olympic record in the 1/8 Elimination Round and Szu Yuan CHEN (TPE) broke the 1/16 and 1/8 combined Olympic record.
From Jennifer NICHOLS' (USA) first arrow to PARK'S winning 10 with the last shot of the Men's Team final, the Archery event at ATHENS 2004 will hold a special place in the hearts of all Archery enthusiasts for many years to come.

Event summary

Round of 64

The first round of elimination, held on 16 August, narrowed the field from 64 archers to 32 in a standard single-elimination bracket. The loser of each match received a final rank between 33 and 64, depending on his score in the round. Each archer fired six ends of three arrows, for a total possible score of 180. Oleksandr Serdyuk of Ukraine had the highest score in the round, with 164.

The first upset of the day belonged to 43rd-ranked Vic Wunderle of the United States, who defeated 22nd-ranked Majhi Sawaiyan of India. The United States were on the losing end of an even larger upset, though, when Butch Johnson lost to Ron van der Hoff of the Netherlands. The biggest upset occurred when 52nd-ranked Tashi Peljor of Bhutan defeated 13th-ranked Jocelyn de Grandis of France to become the lowest ranked archer to advance.

Round of 32

As in the round of 64, archers who advanced to the round of 32 fired six ends of three arrows in the second round of elimination. This round, on 18 August, narrowed the field from 32 to 16 archers, with winners advancing and losers receiving a final rank between 17 and 32 depending on their score in the round. Im Dong-hyun of Korea scored the highest in the round, missing the Olympic record by 1 point with a score of 171. 48th-ranked Satyadev Prasad of India was the lowest ranked archer to advance.

Vic Wunderle of the United States continued to have success in head-to-head competition, eliminating 11th-ranked Wang Cheng-pang of Chinese Taipei. In an astonishing match, 31st-ranked Laurence Godfrey, Great Britain eked out a victory over 2nd-ranked Magnus Petersson of Sweden. Two other top-ten-ranked archers fell when 27th-ranked Xue Haifeng of China defeated 6th-ranked Dmytro Hrachov of Ukraine and 25th-ranked Hasse Pavia Lind lost to Oleksandr Serdyuk. One of the Korean archers, Park Kyung-mo, nearly fell to Kazakhstani Stanislav Zabrodskiy when Zabrodskiy tied Park through the first 18 arrows and scored a 10 on the first tie-break. Park also scored a 10, and followed it up with a second 10 which Zabrodskiy could not match. A tie-break was also needed in the match between Viktor Ruban of Ukraine and Wang Cheng-pang of Chinese Taipei, which Ruban won 9-8.

Round of 16

The round of 16 was held on 19 August and followed the same 18-arrow format as the previous two rounds as it narrowed the field to eight quarterfinalists.

Quarterfinals

The first round of 12-arrow matches was the quarterfinals on 19 August. Winners advanced to the semifinals while losers received a final rank between 5 and 8 depending on score in the quarterfinals. The high score of the round was notched by Tim Cuddihy, with 112. In a see-saw battle, Marco Galiazzo took a lead over Vic Wunderle in the third end. In a tense final end, Wunderle closed the gap. Galiazzo, needing an 8 to tie on the last arrow, shot a 9 to advance and end Wunderle's run. In a surprise, both of the remaining Korean archers fell to Hiroshi Yamamoto and Tim Cuddihy in 1-point matches eliminating them from medal contention. Laurence Godfrey had the most decisive victory of the round, a still-close 2-point victory of Chen Szu Yuan.

Semifinals

Yamamoto and Cuddihy both tied the Olympic record for a 12-arrow match (set by Oh Kyo-moon in 1996) by tying their semifinal match at 115 on 19 August. In the tie-breaker, Yamamoto shot first and hit a 10. Cuddihy was unable to match this, shooting a 9 to drop out of gold medal contention.

Bronze medal match

The bronze medal match was held on 19 August as well. The winner received the bronze medal while the loser took fourth place. Cuddihy defeated Godfrey in a close match.

Final

The gold medal match on 19 August pitted a first-time-Olympian Italian against a veteran Japanese archer, with the favored Koreans being conspicuously absent. The match consisted of 12 arrows, with the winner taking gold and the loser receiving a silver medal.

With a pair of 10s in the first end, Hiroshi Yamamoto took a quick lead of 1 point over Marco Galiazzo. In the second end, Galiazzo missed perfection by only 1 point, scoring 29 to Yamamoto's 27 to reverse the lead. He hit another pair of 10s in the third end, increasing his lead to 2 points going into the final end. Galiazzo maintained the lead through the final three arrows, winning Italy's first Olympic gold medal in archery. Yamamoto's silver was his second Olympic medal, joining the bronze medal that he won in 1984.

Ranking round

The Korean archers, medal favorites in both men's and women's competition, ranked 1st (Im Dong-hyun), 4th (Park Kyung-mo), and 5th (Jang Yong-ho) in the men's individual ranking round. Im's score of 687 set a new world record for 72 arrows, breaking the previous one set in 1995 by fellow Korean Shim Young-sung. It is not recognized by the International Olympic Committee as an Olympic record, however, as the ranking round took place on 12 August, before the 2004 opening ceremony. The round was held at Dekelia Air Force Base.

The bracket setup (with 4th- and 5th-ranked archers facing off in the quarterfinals if undefeated and the winner of that match facing the 1st-ranked archer in the semifinals) meant that the Korean men could do no better than gold and bronze. Marco Galiazzo of Italy in 2nd and Magnus Petersson of Sweden in 3rd rounded out the top five, with Dmytro Hrachov in 6th with the same score as 5th-ranked Jang of Korea.

The three medalists of the 2000 Summer Olympics, Simon Fairweather, Vic Wunderle, and Wietse van Alten, all competed in 2004. None placed higher than 14th in the ranking round (van Alten) and only Wunderle made it to the quarterfinals.

Men's Team

 Host City: Athina, Greece
Venue(s): Dekelia Archery Field, Akharnes; Panathenaic Stadium, Athina
Date Started: August 12, 2004
Date Finished: August 21, 2004
Format: Teams consisted of three archers. Ranking rounds scores based on scores carried over from individual ranking round. Matches consisted of 27 arrows, 9 by each archer. 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. Ties in that round were broken by the number of 10s shot in that round and then the number of 9s shot in that round. If still tied the score in the preceding round was used as the tie-breaker, followed by number of 10s, and then number of 9s in the preceding round. Team event shot entirely at 70 metres.

Summary

By 2004, Korea was easily the world'€™s dominant archery nation, slightly more so for the women, but the men were also formidable. Beginning in 1995 and going through 2011, Korean men won seven of eight team world titles, missing only in 1999. With that background, the defending champions were heavily favored. Korea led the ranking round and received a bye. They went on to win their gold medal with one very close match, that in the quarter-finals when they narrowly defeated the Netherlands 250-249. The bronze medal came down to the United States against the Ukraine, with the Ukraine winning an upset victory, 237-236.

 The Korean men won the Team gold medal repeating once again the victory at the Sydney Olympic Games. However, their failure to win the Individual gold was met with dismay by the Korean Archery fraternity since they have still never claimed the Men's Individual Olympic gold medal. The 42 Japanese veteran Hiroshi YAMAMOTO beat the Australian teenager Tim CUDDIHY by hitting a 10 and winning the silver in the Individual men's competition, while Tim CUDDIHY had to settle for the bronze. In reaching the podium CUDDIHY set a new 36arrow combined Olympic record of 340 points, one of four individual Olympic records to be broken at the Panathinaiko Stadium.

Competition bracket

The United States and the Netherlands both pulled off minor upsets in the first round of competition, the round of 16. The Korean, Italian, and Taiwanese teams sat out due to their high rankings.

Korea's margin of victory in the semifinals was somewhat larger than in the quarterfinals, though this was more due to a weaker performance by their opponent than anything else as Korea shot 8 points fewer than they had in the previous round. Chinese Taipei narrowly defeated the United States to avoid the upset.

Both teams in the bronze medal final shot their lowest score of the competition. The United States, who had outscored Ukraine in each of the previous rounds, was unable to do so in direct competition with the Ukrainians and fell to fourth place while the Ukrainians collected their first archery medal of the year.

The final turned out to be the easiest victory for the Korean team in the entire tournament, a 6-point win over Chinese Taipei.
