Did you know: Archery dates back around 10,000 years and is now practiced in more than 140 countries around the world.
Olympic History: Archery was introduced for the first time at the Games of the II Olympiad, Paris 1900. It was then included on the programme of the 1904, 1908 and 1920 Games before disappearing for over 50 years. The Games of the XX Olympiad, Munich 1972, saw the re-introduction of archery on the Olympic programme. Women were able to compete in archery events at the 1904 and 1908 Games, then again, like the men, in 1972.
