Carnival home for tense archery competitions

The Rio competition will be held at the home of Rio’s Carnival festival, the Sambodromo. There will be plenty of singing and dancing if Australia can add to their two Olympic archery medals in 2016.

In a venue that is known for its vibrant, party atmosphere and amazing costumes and choreography, it will be those athletes with a sense of calm and focus that will likely triumph in the iconic stadium. The Aussies and the rest of the world will be aiming to bring a stop to South Korea’s dominance in the sport that has seen them win 11 of the last 16 gold medals since the Atlanta 1996 Games.

Aussie men: The team of Taylor WorthRyan Tyack and Alec Potts qualified an Australian men's team for the Rio 2016 Games after the trio finished in the top eight at the 2015 World Championships. Worth claimed ninth at the London 2012 Olympics after upsetting the USA’s Brady Ellison and he remain's Australia's highest ranked athlete in the sport. Tyack and Potts will be looking to continue their strong performances at international level to ensure they make their Olympic debut at the Rio 2016 Games.

Aussie woman: Australia was only able to secure one women's quota, achieved at the Oceania Championships. 2010 Youth Olympian Alice Ingley secured selection as she feels she is hitting top form for the Olympics.

Qualification, Nomination & Selection

Australia qualified a men's team after finishing in the top eight at the World Archery Championships.  Each athlete competing in the team competition will compete in the individual event also. 

Australia's women's team missed out on the top eight at the World Archery Championships and qualified the one spot via the Oceania Championships. Further detail on the qualification, nomination and selection process is available here >>>   

Competition Format & Events

There are four Olympic archery events (recurve): individual and team, for men and women. The aim for all events is to shoot arrows as close to the bullseye as possible accruing points.

All archers and teams compete in a 72-arrow qualification round which determines their ranking for the rounds. This will take place in Rio on August 5, the day of the Opening Ceremony.

The individual competitions are played in knockout format with head-to-head matches. Matches are played over the best of five sets with each set allowing three arrows per archer. The winner of each match qualifies for the next round until the last two archers go head to head for the gold medal.

The team events follow the same format with teams of three archers competing against each other, with the best score after 24 arrows going through.

The men's team competition will be held on Day 1 of the Games, Saturday August 6.

The individidual events for men and women will be held from Day 3 to Day 7. The men's medals decided on Day 6 (August 11) and the women on Day 7 (Day 12).
