ARCHERY
Archery is one of the oldest hunting techniques invented by man. The bow and arrow is an efficient, silent and fast weapon that reached its greatest importance during the middle ages.Although archery had been demonstrated several times at the Olympic games it was not admitted as a full event until 1972. America and Asian countries have so far won most of the titles, both in the men's and women's events, and at the Sydney games South Korea walked away with three of the four gold medals on offer.The finals of Olympic archery contests, which demand nerves of steel, have recently been changed in order to make the sport more exciting for spectators. Contestants compete by direct elimination, so suspense is kept right to the end of the tournament.
