  1. World Archery proposes compound for the 2028 Olympic Games Compound is officially being considered for inclusion alongside the current recurve events on the sports programme of the LA28 Olympic Games. The proposal from World Archery is for an additional indoor archery competition for men, women and mixed teams that would last approximately three days, shorter than the current nine-day Olympic schedule. Competing over 18 metres and indoors, in comparison to the 70-metre outdoor recurve format, would clearly differentiate the two events while building on the successful professional indoor archery circuit that is already well-established in the USA, the host nation of the next Games after Paris 2024. https://worldarchery.sport/news/200806/world-archery-proposes-compound-la28-olympic-games
