Crossbow sport appeared for the first time in the Olympic Games in the 1900 Paris Games. The program at that time included seven competitions from different distances, while the 1904 St. Louis Olympics included five competitions, but none of the participants was outside the United States. In the 1908 London Olympics, the program included only three competitions, then the game was absent from the 1912 Stockholm Olympics, and returned to the Belgian Olympiad in Anfer in 1920, knowing that the 1916 Games were not held due to World War I. After the Envir session, this competition was absent from the Olympic schedule, and it only reappeared in the 1972 Munich session, when it was open to men and women in the singles category. As for the team competition, it was adopted starting from the Seoul Games in South Korea in 1988. South Korea is the most prominent country in this sport, especially after the 1972 era, and it has been ranked first among the countries by 14 gold, in front of the United States with the same balance, but six of its golds were achieved before the year 1920, and titles are unlikely to come out of the hands of the archers of these two countries.
