Archery[edit]

The Swedish women, despite not having a spectacular showing in the individual round, nearly knocked off the heavily favored Korean squad in the team round quarterfinals. The Swedes tied the Koreans at 240 in the 27-arrow match, forcing a shootout that the Koreans won to eliminate the Swedes from medal contention. No other team came within 12 points of the Koreans, and the Korean team's average margin against the three other nations it faced was nearly 20 points.
