Andrés Manuel Pila Solano (born May 11, 1991) is a Colombian competitive archer.[1] A lone male archer on the Colombian team at the 2016 Summer Olympics, Pila has collected a total of four medals throughout his five-year international archery career, including a bronze in the men's individual recurve at the 2014 South American Games in Santiago, Chile.[2][3]

Pila was selected to compete for Colombia in the men's individual recurve at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.[2] Sitting at forty-third position from the initial stage of the competition with 654 points, Pila lost his opening round match to the hard-charging Malaysian and London 2012 quarterfinalist Khairul Anuar Mohamad, who managed to get past him through a comfortable 6–0 challenge.[4][5]
