Archery is an Olympic sport of shooting at a target with a bow and arrows.

Bow is one of the earliest weapons invented by humankind. Archery first appeared at the Olympic Games in 1900, and various disciplines were introduced in 1904, 1908, and 1920. The sport then had a 52-year hiatus from the Olympics due to the lack of general rules. It was re-introduced to the programme in 1972.

There are two types of bows: recurve (Olympic) bow and compound bow. Both will be represented at the 2nd European Games MINSK 2019.

8 sets of medals will be contested by 128 athletes for seven competition days.
