The big question looms: Who will win the inaugural archery mixed teams title? The qualifications and finals take place on the second day of action at the Yumenoshima Park Archery Field on 24 July 2021. 

What’s happening today?

The mixed team elimination round begins the day in the archery tournament. In the afternoon, there are the quarterfinals and semifinals, before the defeated teams go head-to-head for the bronze medal. The last game of the day will be the gold-medal match.

Keep an eye on…

Republic of Korea. No country has dominated the sport of archery at the Olympics like them. Among their many accolades, they won four gold medals out of four at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. However, in recent years, their domination has been challenged by the United States, thanks to archers such as the colourful champion Brady Ellison and Jack Williams. Italy, People's Republic of China and India may also prove to be dark horses in the mixed team archery event at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

What happened in the Rio 2016 finals?

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is hosting the inaugural mixed team archery event, which means there are no results from Rio 2016
