Archery, a sport that requires a mastery of skills in shooting arrows using a bow, has always been extremely popular among Europeans. The aim of the sport is simple: competitors try to shoot arrows as close to the centre of a target as they possibly can. However, it’s hardly a simple task, given that archers fire at the targets from a distance of 70m, and the targets are only 122cm in diameter. Competitors require intense focus and concentration, as well as immense skill and nerve, in order to hit their target – especially since the gold ring at the centre is only 12.2 cm in diameter!
At Baku 2015, Europe’s most accurate archers will shoot for gold from 16 June to 22 June 2015. The competition will take place at the iconic Tofiq Bahramov Stadium. The Baku European Games format will follow that of the Olympic Games with 64 men and 64 women competing in the recurve division, in individual and team events as well as in a mixed team event. There will be a total of five medal events. Ranking points will also be available as athletes attempt to qualify for the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
