Best Answer

Archery completion at the Olympic games allow only one type of bow known as Recurve Limited (that is a Recurve bow with a sight, shot with finger release) according to the NFAA, or simple known as Recurve according to the USAA and NAA. No Compound bows, traditional bows or bare bow division.

The rules are set by the Federation Internationale de Tir a l'Arc (FITA), the international governing body of the sport.

There are four archery events held at the Olympics: Men's Individual, Women's Individual, Men's Team and Women's Team.
