Archery today in the Summer Olympics can be linked back to Robin Hood. Robin Hood in the Summer Olympics today means to split the shaft of an arrow by hitting it in the dead centre of it that is already in the target. There have been many advances with the bow since that time, but the technique has stayed the same. For example the recurve bow is made with an aerospace aluminum alloys and carbon fibre instead of wood. The arrows are now of aluminum and carbon instead of wood. This being so the arrows can travel faster at speeds of 240km/h. One of the sports played today is called matchplay which is 2 archers and 12 arrows. Another Summer Olympic sport is the World concept brings out the best of archers to compete. When the sport archery came to the Summer Olympics in 1900 it disappeared 20 years later in 1920 for 50 years. Thanks to it being one of the first sports letting women compete in it a woman brought it back. Mrs. Inger Frith can be thanked for this. She had became President of International Sport and brought it back in 1972 at Munich.
