The Archery Competition is composed of two major events; the Individual and Team competitions. Athletes compete using either a compound or recurve bow across five classification categories. Male and female athletes compete against each other in all competitions and shoot at a distance of 18 meters from the shooting line the target face. An athlete’s bow type is determined by their personal preference.
