Summary

Between 1975 and 1985 five of the six World Championships were won by American archers, led by Darrell Pace, the 1976 gold medalist and 1979 World Champion, but they would not be able to compete in Moscow because of the USA-led boycott. The gold medal went to Finnish archer Tomi Poikolainen, competing in his first of five Olympics, later winning a silver medal in the 1992 team event. His score of 2,455 for the Double FITA Round was well below recent international performances by the top American archers, Pace and Rick McKinney.
