Archery, as a sport, has been practiced since a couple of
hundred years ago, during the medieval and feudal ages in
Europe as well as during the time of the Samurai in Japan.
Archers have long been revered and also idolized, as in the
case of the legendary Robin Hood of Nottingham. Fast
forward to today and we see that the trusty archery
equipment like bows and arrows, have been substituted by
many other contemporary weapons. And now, archery is
relegated to the status of a sport, whereas before it was
considered a military profession.

• The good thing however is that archery is now considered
  both as a science and as an art. With its inclusion as one of
  the featured sports in the Olympic games archery as a sport
  has slowly but surely gained a cult following. And because of
  its status as a sport that is featured in that pinnacle of all
  sporting tournaments, the world governing organization in
  conjunction with the Olympics Committee has enacted
  standards that must be followed with regard to the
  equipment to be used to be able to participate in the sport.
• The fact that only duly recognized archery equipment which passed the
  rigid standards of the governing bodies of the sport further indicate the
  rapid growth of the science of archery. The bows and arrows nowadays are
  seldom made out of wood, and mostly are made from carbon fiber or
  graphite composites that are quite durable but also lightweight. These
  bows and arrows also offer a lot of improvements in terms of balance as
  well as other functionalities, all in the effort to bring out the best in each
  and every participant of the sport. Now, although the multitude of
  changes in archery and its inclusion in the Olympics has also ensured its
  visibility for future generations to talk about and even try out.
