Have you heard of Archery?

Archery is one of many olympic events. The aim of the event is to shoot arrows at a target and they need to be the most accurate to be crowned the winner! Did you know that the first Archery competition was set in Finsbury, London, in 1583. It attracted more than 1,000 participants!

If you are thinking about trying Archery you will need a bow, arrows, a target, and gloves to protect your hands. You can play Archery indoors or outdoors. In indoor Archery competitions archers must shoot 20 ends using only 3 arrows at each end, the distance that indoor archers must shoot from is 18m to 25m. Outdoor Archery also has the same rules except the distance for outdoor Archery is a range of 30m to 90m!

It will take a lot of hard work to win gold in the olympics for Archery. You will need to have great hand and eye coordination and also great accuracy be able to even be considered to be in the olympics! The most accurate person and the one that shoots their arrow from the furthest distance win the big gold medal!!!

Why don’t you try out Archery and see if you are good at it. If you are you might even end up in the olympics some day!!!
