What Is Archery?

Archery is one of the oldest sports practiced today and is a popular medal sport in the Summer Olympics and Paralympics. In ancient Egypt, people used bone and tendon to fashion bows. Eventually, the bow evolved into a curved weapon. Archery also proved popular in ancient China and Japan. In the latter, archery centered on kyujutsu or the art of the bow.

The greatest archers of the Middle Ages were the Mongols, Parthians, Turks, and Assyrians.

As a sport, archery can be either a solo or team sport. Participants hit targets with arrows, which they draw against the bow. Archery requires impeccable focus, accurate aim, hand-eye coordination, physical endurance, and stamina.
