    Archery is where the athlete uses a bow that is drawn by hand and held, free of any mechanical device, to shoot arrows. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat. In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity. The range is squared off and each distance accurately measured from a point vertically beneath the gold of each target face to the shooting line. The tolerance for field dimensions at 90/70/60 meters is 30cm; at 50/40/30 meters 15cm. Archery was introduced in second Olympic Games, Paris in 1900. Archery was first incorporated into the Asian Games in 1978. There are four Archery events at Olympics. They are men's individual, women's individual, men's team and women's team. All four events are recurve archery events, held under the World Archery-approved 70-meter distance and rules. Each match is scored using the Archery Olympic Round, consisting of the best-of-five sets, with three arrows per set.
