Date5 – 6 August 2016
LocationSambódromo, Rio de Janeiro
Participants36 from 12 countries
FormatTeams consisted of three archers. Ranking rounds scores based on scores carried over from individual ranking round. Tie-breaking for the final placements was done by the following method. Losers in each round were ranked according to the score they shot in that round. Ties in that round were broken by the number of 10s shot in that round and then the number of 9s shot in that round. If still tied the score in the preceding round was used as the tie-breaker, followed by number of 10s, and then number of 9s in the preceding round. Team event shot entirely at 70 metres. Matches consisted of 27 arrows, 9 per archer.

The men’s team was the first medal event in archery at the Rio Olympics, just one day after the opening ceremony. Current world champions Korea had won nine of the last 11 world titles as well as four of the seven previous Olympic gold medals, which made them favorites for Rio. The three team members included numbers one, two and six in the world rankings, and the winners of the last three individual world titles.

The Korean men regained their crown with a win in the final against the United States, thus avenging defeat by the Americans in the 2012 semi-final. The victory of the Korean men was more impressive than that of the women, as they defeated all their opponents, Netherlands, Australia and the United States, in the elimination matches with the highest possible margin of 6-0 on each occasion. After the ranking round (216 arrows) the Koreans shot 2057 points with the second placed US team trailing by 33 points. In the final, Kim Woo-Jin, Lee Seung-Yun and Ku Bon-Chan started with six tens in a perfect first set and closed the match with consecutive sets of 58 and 59. Individual bronze medalist and world’s fourth ranked Brady Ellison led the United States to the silver medal. In the bronze medal match, Australia defeated PR China in four sets to win the country’s first ever team medal in archery. Defending Olympic champions Italy lost 0-6 in the quarter-final against PR China.
