2012 Olympic games[edit]

Van der Ven competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London in men's individual archery. He was coached by Wietse van Alten, winner of the bronze medal in Sydney 2000.[2] In an upset victory, he convincingly beat top-seed and world-record holder Im Dong-hyun 7-1 in the round of 16.[3] After beating Kuo Cheng-Wei 6-0 in the quarterfinals, he came to a 5-5 draw in the semi-finals against Takaharu Furukawa, shooting 141 versus Furukawa’s 140.[4] In the following shoot-off he shot a 9 while Furukawa shot a 10, relegating him to a bronze medal match against Dai Xiaoxiang. Here Van der Ven again came to a 5-5 draw, scoring 2 points more than his opponent, but lost again in the first shoot-off, thereby finishing in 4th position.[5] Since 2009 Rick van der Ven is training at The Olympic Sportcentre in Papendal and is studying Engineering Mechanics in Arnhem.
