Summary

Phil Bryant won the Double York Round with 7 points of a possible 10. He failed to post the best score only at the 80 yards distance, and did not have the most hits at either 60 or 80 yds. Bryant had not previously won a national title but won both individual events at the 1904 Olympics, and later won United States’ titles in 1905, 1909, and 1911-12. Silver medalist Robert Williams had won the US title in the Double York Round in 1883, 1885 and 1902, and is the only US Olympian known to have fought in the Civil War – he was 63-years-old in 1904. Williams also won the silver in the Double American Round. The podium in this event was the same as in the Double American Round, with Bryant winning gold, Robert Williams winning silver and Will Thompson taking the bronze. Williams and Thompson also led their Potomac Archers team to the gold medal in the Team Round. This was the only time the Double York Round was contested at the Olympics.
