FormatRanking round consisted of 72 arrows at 70 m. 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.

Korea’s men archers were the best in the world, having won four of the last five World Championships both individually and in team competition. But they had been the best since around 1990 and had yet to have a male archer win an individual Olympic gold medal. This would continue in 2004, as, despite their three archers placing in the top five in the ranking round, none of them made the semi-finals, and they were shut-out of the medals.

In the lower half of the draw, Italy’s Marco Galiazzo advanced to the quarter-finals, where he faced the 2000 silver medalist, American Vic Wunderle. Galiazzo had been 2001 World Junior Champion and was the 2004 European Champion and had placed third in the ranking round and dispatched Wunderle 109-108, coming back to win on the final arrows. The final matched Galiazzo against Japan’s Hiroshi Yamamoto, a 41-year-old high school teacher. Yamamoto had won a bronze medal in the Olympic individual event in 1984, and competed at every Olympics from 1984-96. He failed to qualify in 2000 and tried to retire from the sport, but came back when his students encouraged him. Galiazzo continued his magical 2004 by defeating Yamamoto 111-109 for the gold medal.
