Archery had its debut at the 1900 Summer Olympics
and has been contested in 13 Olympiads. Eighty three different nations
have appeared in the Olympic archery competitions, with France appearing
the most often at 11 times. It is governed by the International Archery Federation. Recurve archery is the only discipline of archery featured at the Olympic Games where Archery Olympic Gold Medals are won.
Modern Olympic archery consists of four medal events: men's individual archery medal,
women's individual archery medal, men's team archery medal, and women's team archery medal. In all four events,
the distance from the archer to the target is 70 metres.
In the individual competitions, 64 archers compete for the archery medal
. The competition begins with the ranking round. Each archer shoots 72 arrows
(in six ends, or groups, of 12 arrows). They are then ranked by score
to determine their seeding for the single-elimination bracket. After
this, final rankings for each archer is determined by the archer's score
in the round in which the archer was defeated, with the archers
defeated in the first round being ranked 33rd through 64th. The winning archer gets the Archery Gold Medal
