Indonesian Olympic News Update   18 Nov 2021

Hangzhou 2022 will be the first Asian Games in history to feature all 10 archery events. A full line-up of individidual, team, and mixed team events has been scheduled for both the recurve and compound discplines.

This means that Asia will be the first continent to follow the international event format of World Archery at its major multi-sport event.

Archery made its Asian Games debut in the 1978 Games in Bangkok, Thailand with four events: men's individual, women's individual, men's team, and women's team. The mixed team recurve event was added in Jakarta-Palembang 2018.

The compound event was added in Incheon 2014, both for individual and team events. But four years later, the individual compound event was dropped, replaced by a mixed team event.

Indonesia has won five medals (three silvers and two bronzes) in archery at the Asian Games, its most recent medalists were Diananda Choirunisa (silver, women's individual recurve) and Riau Ega Agatha (bronze, men's individual recurve).

The 2022 Asian Games will be held in Hangzhou, China from September 10 to 25.
