i want to know the rules of archery
An Olympic archery target was about 1 kilometre big.
There are no true rules in archery, it really depends on the club you shoot with and their rules.
Archery was not a sports event in the first ancient Olympic Games in Greece. However, the games were held for over 1,000 years, so it's entirely possible that at some time archery was an Olympic sport in the past. Archery for men was an event for the first time in the modern Olympics in 1900. The first archery event for women was in 1904. However, there was no uniformity in the rules in those early Olympics and archery was dropped as an event after 1920. The international governing body for archery, the Federation Internationale de Tira l'Arc (FITA), was founded in 1931. See the related link.
Since the International Archery Federation created a standardized set of rules in 1972, South Korea has won the most total medals and most gold medals in Olympic competition.
