Archery is the first medal to be awarded in the Rio Olympics. So it makes sense that it is the first sport to be honored in the Summer Games quilt.
Archery had its debut at the 1900 Summer Olympics The most noticeable trend has been the dominance of the Korean women archers, who have won 14 out of 15 gold medals in the women's events since 1984.
I remember taking Archery in Gym class in Junior High School. I also remember trying my hand at Archery at Y Camp. Given the concerns with weapons in the schools, I wonder if they still offer that sport in our school systems.
