Archery at the london Olympic Games

Archery is a Olympic sport, there are different types of archery so there are different rules. Archery is gonna be held at lord’s cricket ground at the London 2012 Olympic games. Did you know the first archery competition was organised in Finsbury, London, in 1583!

Archery competitions can be held inside or outside, in each competition the people will be divided into ends with each archer shooting 3 or 6 arrows. Archery is suitable for competitors with experience. If you get a bulls eye you get a huge score for your team, if you hit anywhere close to the red dot you get a smaller amount of points.

Archery is a challenging game. All you have to do is concentrate on the target it will be very tricky because you might fall over or shoot the arrow in the wrong place. Before archery was an olympic game people used bows and arrows for hunting and warfare 10,000 years ago.

If you want to try this sport you may need: something to keep you balanced, if you're playing it outside you may need glasses so the sun won’t distract you, bow and arrow. You also need a target and some protective gear. Don't forget practice makes perfect!
