Ernesto Horacio Boardman López (born February 23, 1993) is a Mexican competitive archer.[1] He captured the men's team recurve title, alongside his compatriots Juan René Serrano and Luis Álvarez, in a historic final match against the United States at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada, and eventually competed as a lone male archer at the 2016 Summer Olympics, ending his run in an immediate departure from the initial round.[2]

Boardman was selected to compete as a lone male archer for the Mexican team at the 2016 Summer Olympics, shooting only in the individual recurve tournament.[3] First, he fired off a score of 662 points, including 25 targets of a perfect ten, for the twenty-eight spot against a field of 63 other archers in the qualifying round.[4] Heading to the knockout stage, Boardman bowed out early in the opening round match to his Cuban opponent Adrián Puentes with a score of 4–6.[5][6]
