History of Archery – The Olympic Games

History of Archery

Archery was introduced for the first time at the Games of the II Olympiad in Paris in 1900. It was then included on the program of the 1904, 1908 and 1920 Games before disappearing for over 50 years. The Games of the XX Olympiad in Munich in 1972, saw the re-introduction of archery on the Olympic program. Women were able to compete in archery events at the 1904 and 1908 Games, then again, like the men, in 1972.
