Tokyo Funding (2017-21)
Paralympic medals won since introduction of National Lottery funding
Archery featured at the first Stoke Mandeville Games in 1948, the predecessor to the modern Paralympic Games, and has been included on every Paralympic programme since the inaugural competition in 1960.
The object of the sport is simple: to shoot arrows as close to the centre of a target as possible and aim for the gold ring. Athletes shoot from a distance of 50 or 70 metres, following competition procedures and rules that are nearly identical to those used in able-bodied competition.
The use of assistive equipment or an assistant is allowed depending on the impairment, while a variety of techniques may be employed, including pulling the bow string with the mouth. Read more on the Tokyo 2020 website.
