South Koreas archery dominance continued in London as Ki Bo Bae narrowly edged Mexicos Aida Roman in a shoot off to win the countrys seventh gold in the last eight Olympics. After a dismal fourth set at Lords Cricket Ground Roman rallied to take the fifth and force a decisive shoot off.

Ki shot first and hit an 8. Roman matched it, but Ki's arrow was closer to the center, giving her the win and a sweep of the team and individual golds. But Roman's silver is still quite a feat for a nation that had never won an archery medal and now has two to its name. Mariana Avitia joined Roman on the podium after she came from behind to beat American Khatuna Lorig in the bronze medal match. Trailing 4-2 going into the fourth set, Lorig hit a 10 so perfectly centered that it hit the camera hole and bounced off the target. Avitia followed with a 7, and Lorig had an opening. She followed with an 8, and Avitia answered with a 9. But Lorig's third arrow was a disastrous 6, giving the bronze to Avitia. Lorig fell to Ki in the semifinals.
