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.

In 1999 Korea was upset at the World Championships, which were won by Italy, stopping a streak of five straight Korean world titles. But for the third consecutive Olympics, Korea’s women archers set a world record in the ranking round. Italy struggled, placing only seventh in the ranking round. They would go out in the quarter-finals against Ukraine, who moved on to the final against Korea. But Korea dominated that match, winning their fourth of four gold medals in the women’s archery team event. Germany, which had won silver in 1996, took the bronze medal, defeating Turkey, which had also placed fourth in 1996.
