Participants64 from 32 countries
FormatRanking round consisted of 72 arrows, 18 each at 30 metres, 50 metres, 70 metres, and 90 metres. Matches in rounds 1-3 consisted of 16 arrows. Matches in the quarter-finals, semi-finals, and final round consisted of 12 arrows. 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. Matches shot entirely at 70 metres.

Four different Koreans had won the last four World Championships. The last non-Korean World Champion was Simon Fairweather of Australia, who was champion back in 1991. Sydney was his fourth Olympics, but he had yet to win a medal, and his best individual performance had been 16th back in Seoul (1988). Fairweather qualified eighth in Sydney in the ranking round, which was led by three Koreans, Jang Yong-Ho qualifying first. Because of the rapid turnover on the Korean team, none of the Koreans were among their recent World Champions, although second-placed O Gyo-Mun had been an individual bronze medalist in Atlanta. But Jang went out in round three while the other two Koreans lost in the quarter-finals. Fairweather advanced to the final, his only close match in the semis against Dutch archer Wietse van Alten, which he won 112-110. Fairweather won his gold medal by defeating upstart American Vic Wunderle in the final, 113-106.
