This page needs to be clearer in what record was broken "Men's Individual (70m): South Korea's Dong Hyun Im, 687" - I a not sure what this is saying - what is the 687? It would also be interesting to have information on the previous record, when it was set - by how far it was exceeded. I have no information, and so cannot do this myself--[[User:OldakQuill|Oldak Quill]] 02:50, 17 Aug 2004 (UTC)

I've added "points" after the archery results to address this concern; a fuller explanation (how points are awarded in archery, etc.) seems out of place for this page. I'm ambivalent about the idea of listing the records that were broken, as it runs the risk of cluttering up the page. If it can be done without becoming obtrusive, that'd be fine, but I don't otherwise see a strong necessity for it. --Shmuel 20:23, 17 Aug 2004 (UTC)
I've tried one method of presenting the previous record with the new shooting record. Should we apply this to the rest, or yank that one out? Any other opinions? --Shmuel 22:35, 17 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Does Wikipedia have a convention regarding the style for Chinese names? At issue is, for example, "Liu Chunhong" vs. "Chunhong Liu." Shmuel 04:43, 5 Sep 2004 (UTC)
