Historical Funding










Archery is around 10,000 years old and was first contested as a competitive sport in medieval England. It was first included at the Paris 1900 Olympics and became a regular fixture from Munich 1972 onwards. Olympic archers shoot at 122cm targets from a distance of 70m - longer than the length of an Olympic swimming pool. 

At Tokyo 2020 athletes will compete in men's and women's individual events, and men's, women's and mixed team events (a new addition to the 2020 programme). Read more on the Tokyo 2020 website.

The UK National Governing Body is Archery GB, based in Lilleshall. Find out more on the Archery GB website.
