Date12 – 21 August 2004
LocationPanathinaiko Stadio, Athina / Proponitirio Toksovolias, Akharnes
Participants39 from 13 countries
FormatTeams consisted of three archers. Ranking rounds scores based on scores carried over from individual ranking round. Matches consisted of 27 arrows, 9 by each archer. 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.

By 2004, Korea was easily the world’s dominant archery nation, slightly more so for the women, but the men were also formidable. Beginning in 1995 and going through 2011, Korean men won seven of eight team world titles, missing only in 1999. With that background, the defending champions were heavily favored. Korea led the ranking round and received a bye. They went on to win their gold medal with one very close match, that in the quarter-finals when they narrowly defeated the Netherlands 250-249. The bronze medal came down to the United States against Ukraine, with Ukraine winning an upset victory, 237-236.
