The Tokyo 2020 Olympics is here (finally), and once again, we get to witness elite archers doing what they do best— shooting straight. Read on as we explain how to watch an Olympics archery live stream, including for free in many countries.
At the 2016 Rio Olympics, South Korea swept all the gold medals in archery. And that wasn’t a one-off event – with 23 Olympic gold medals, this country has dominated archery for decades. In fact, tales of how South Korean archers train will sound borderline mythical to some.
But it’s not as one-sided as it seems, since some of the other contenders have trained exceptionally well despite the pandemic. Take America’s Brady Ellison. He fought off a career-ruining injury just a few years ago and is currently ranked the world’s best archer. In the women’s field, we have Taiwan’s Lei Chien-Ying, Germany’s Lisa Unruh, and India’s Deepika Kumari, all of whom are exceptional archers.
In this article, we’ll provide you with key dates for the event and explain how you can watch archery at Olympics 2020 live from your country. Curious about dates for the other games and general viewing options? Check out this guide to learn everything about how to get anall summer long.
