Archery edit

In France's fifth appearance in modern Olympic archery, the individual archers went 7-3 in head-to-head competition, buoyed by Sebastien Flute's 5-0 record as he advanced to the final and won the gold medal. It was the first medal the French had won in modern Olympic archery. Both teams won the first two rounds before being defeated in the semifinals. They also both lost their bronze medal matches.
