On August 31, Russell Wolfe (Widnoon, Pa.) took on Johan Wildeboer of the Netherlands in the men's individual recurve W1/W2 event, opening with a 10 on the first shot. He continued to impress and dominated the match, winning the first set 28-25 and the next two sets, 26-24 and 26-24, respectively, for a 6-0 match win. However, he was eliminated in the second match of the day, 6-0, against Oscar de Pellegrin of Italy, one of the favorites to medal in this event.
