Summary

Koreans had won the 1993 and 1995 World Championships, but neither archer was in Atlanta, failing to make their team. The ranking round leader was Italy’s Michele Frangilli, not yet well known, although he had helped Italy to a team silver at the 1995 Worlds. In the quarter-finals he met American Justin Huish, who had won a few US titles, but was ranked only 24th internationally. They tied at 112 and in the shoot-off Huish shot two 10s to defeat Frangilli. Huish became a popular player for the American spectators, as he wore his ponytail underneath the back of his backward-facing baseball cap, and was very outgoing. Supported by the fans, he won his last two matches easily to win the gold medal, defeating Sweden’s Magnus Petersson in the final.

Huish would return in 2000 to again make the United States’ Olympic team, but soon after that was caught selling marijuana to a police informant, and withdrew from the team, spending four months in prison. He attempted to qualify for the 2004 Olympics but did not make the team.
