INDIVIDUAL COMPETITION
 
Qualification Round
 
There are two different rounds that can be used for qualification to rank those athletes that should progress to the head-to-head elimination phase of the tournament. The two optional qualification rounds are:
 
  • For the Recurve bow: 70m Round or 1440 Round (For world championships only 70m Round)
  • For the Compound bow, the 50m Round or the 1440 Round (For world championships only 50m Round)
The 70m qualification round is for the Recurve bow and is currently used at all major World Archery events such as, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, World Cups and World Championships. A total of 72 arrows are shot at 70 meters on a 122 cm target face. Athletes shoot 12 ends of six (6) arrows in four (4) minutes.

The 50m qualification round is for the Compound bow and used at all major World Archery events such as, the World Games, World Cups and World Championships. A total of 72 arrows are shot at 50 meters on a 6 scoring zoned 80cm target face. Athletes are given their own target face to shoot 12 ends of six (6) arrows in four (4) minutes.

The 1440 Round, formerly known as the FITA Round, is where athletes shoot 36 arrows at each of the following four (4) distances: 
 
  • Men: 90, 70, 50 and 30 metres
  • Women: 70, 60, 50 and 30 metres

A total of, 144 arrows are shot to rank the top 104 men and top 104 women in each division and the top 16 men's and women's teams in each division. At the 2 longest distances (90m and 70m for men, 70m and 60m for women), each athlete will shoot six (6) ends of six (6) arrows at each distance, within four (4) minutes on a 122cm face. At the short distances (50m and 30m), athletes shoot six (6) arrows in four (4) minutes on an 80cm face. The 80cm target face, at the shorter distances, can be one (1) full target face with 10 scoring zones, shared by all athletes on the target matt, or a 6 zoned target face issued for each athlete on a target matt to shoot at individually.

The top 104 men and top 104 women, in each division, of the qualification round will proceed to the Elimination Rounds.
 
Elimination and Final Rounds
 
The highest 104 ranked men and women will be placed in a single Elimination head-to-head Pairing Chart according to their ranking achieved in the Qualification Round. Higher ranked athletes are placed separately in the draw to ensure the top ranked athletes meet later in the competition. The top 8 ranked athletes form the qualification round will receive an automatic bye, for the first two (2) rounds, straight to the 1/16th round. The remaining athletes are paired No 9 ranked against No 104, No 10 ranked against No 103 and so on. All male and female recurve athletes shoot their elimination matches at a distance of 70m. Preliminary elimination rounds, athletes shoot, simultaneously, the best of three (3) sets, six (6) arrows per set shooting in a time limit of four (4) minutes. The winner of each set will be awarded two (2) set points, one (1) point each, if the scores for the set are tied. If the match is tied, with both athletes achieving three (3) set points each, a one (1) arrow shoot-off will be required and the athlete whose arrow is closest to the centre of the target, wins the match. The winner of the shoot-off will be award 1 set point, taking the match 4-3.
 
When athletes progress through to the final, to decide the medals, a similar format is used. However, on this occasion, athletes take it in turns, shooting their arrows alternatively in the match, one by one to add to the excitement. Matches are the best of five (5) sets with each athlete shooting three (3) arrows, per set, within a time limit of twenty (20) seconds per arrow. The first athlete to attain six (6) set points wins the medal match. If there is a tie, 5-5, the same one (1) arrow shoot-off process will be used to decide the medallist, the winner of the shoot-off being awarded one (1) point to win 6-5. Loosing semi-finalists use the same format to shoot-off for the Bronze medal.
 
Compound male and female athletes shoot five (5) ends of three (3) arrows at 50m, simultaneously, in a time limit of two (2) minutes. The athlete with the highest cumulative score will win the match and proceed to the next round. If both athletes shoot the same score, a one (1) arrow shoot-off will be required and the athlete whose arrow is closest to the centre of the target, wins the match. For compound medal matches, the same format is used, however, athletes take it in turns, alternating, to shoot one (1) arrow at a time, in a time limit of twenty (20) seconds each.
 
 
TEAM COMPETITION
 
There are two team events for athletes to participate in:

  • The Team Event 
  • Mixed Team event 

The Team Event:

Comprise of the three (3) highest scoring athletes of the same gender, bow discipline and affiliated team from the qualification round. The top sixteen (16) ranked male and female teams, will be placed in a head to head elimination draw, highest ranked against the No sixteenth (16th) team, the second (2nd) highest ranked against the fifteenth (15th) ranked team and so on.

The recurve team event is the best of four (4) sets, with each team shooting, simultaneously, six (6) arrows in each set, two (2) arrows per athlete in a two (2) minute time limit. The team with the highest cumulative score in the set wins, and is awarded two (2) set points, one (1) point each, if the scores are tied. The first team to achieve five (5) set points, wins the match. However, if the team set points are tied at 4-4, after the fourth (4th) set, a shoot-off will be required. Each of the 3 team members shoot one (1) arrow each, in a time limit of twenty (20) seconds and the team with the highest cumulative score, wins the match 5-4. However, if the cumulative shoot off scores are tied, the team with the arrow closest to the centre of the target, wins the match.

For the compound bow, the teams are comprised and shoot in the same rotation as the recurve teams but instead of set points, the compound format uses cumulative scoring. Each team shoots, simultaneously, 4 ends of six (6) arrows, two (2) arrows per athlete, in the two (2) minute time limit. The team with the highest cumulative score wins the match and progresses to the next round. If the scores are tied, the match will be decided by a shoot-off. In the shoot-off, each team shoots three (3) arrows, one per athlete, and the team with the highest cumulative score, wins the match. If the scores still remain tied from those arrows shot, the team that has an arrow closest to the centre, wins the match.

In the team medal matches for both recurve and compound, to decide the Bronze and Gold Medals, the format is very similar. However, rather than teams shooting simultaneously, teams shoot their arrows alternatively between each other, and twenty (20) seconds is allocated for each team member to take it in turns to shoot their arrow. Should teams tie, the familiar shoot-off procedure is used but teams’ alternative between each other to take it in turns for one of their team members to shoot an arrow in the twenty (20) second time limit.

The Mixed Team Event:

Comprises of one (1) highest scoring male and one (1) highest scoring female athlete of the same team and bow discipline. From the same qualification round used for all other events, the highest scoring male and female scores are combined to make a grand total for the team. These combined scores are then ranked in numerical order to select the top 16 mixed teams to progress through to the elimination matches. As in the team event, the top sixteen (16) teams are paired for the elimination matches, No 1 against No 16th ranked team and No 2 against number 15th ranked team and so.

The recurve mixed team event is the best of four (4) sets, with each team shooting, simultaneously, four (4) arrows in each set, two (2) arrows per athlete, in an 80 second time limit. The team with the highest cumulative score in the set, wins the match. However, if the team set points are tied at 4-4 after the fourth (4th) set, a shoot-off will be required. Each of the two (2) team members shoot one (1) arrow each, in a time limit of twenty (20) seconds and the team with the highest cumulative score, wins the match 5-4. However, if the cumulative shoot off scores are tied, the team with the arrow closest to the centre of the target, wins the match.

For the compound bow, the teams are comprised and shoot in the same rotation as the recurve teams but instead of set points, the compound format uses cumulative scoring. Each team shoots, simultaneously, 4 ends of four (4) arrows, two (2) arrows per athlete, in an 80 second time limit. The team with the highest cumulative score wins the match and progresses to the next round. If the scores are tied, the match will be decided by a shoot-off. In the shoot-off, each team shoots two (2) arrows, one per athlete, and the team with the highest cumulative score, win the match. If the scores still remain tied from those arrows sot, the team that has an arrow closest to the centre wins the match.

In the mixed team medal matches for both recurve and compound, to decide the Bronze and Gold Medals, the format is very similar. However, rather than teams shooting simultaneously, teams shoot their arrows alternatively between each other, and twenty (20) seconds is allocated for each team member to take it in turns to shoot their arrow. Should teams tie, the familiar shoot-off procedure is used but teams’ alternative between each other to take it in turns for one of their team members to shoot an arrow in the twenty (20) second time limit.
