Archery at the 2008 Summer Paralympics
at the XIII Paralympic Games
|Venue||Olympic Green Archery Field|
Archers are given a classification depending on the type and extent of their disability. The classification system allows archers to compete against others with a similar level of function.
Archery classes are:
- Wheelchair 1 (W1)
- Wheelchair 2 (W2)
- Standing (ST)
For each of the events below, medals are contested for one or more of the above classifications.
There were 134 athletes (86 males, 48 females) from 28 countries competing in this sport.
This ranking sorts countries by the number of gold medals earned by their archers (in this context a country is an entity represented by a National Paralympic Committee). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically.
