Summary

Four different Koreans had won the last four World Championships. The last non-Korean World Champion was Simon Fairweather of Australia, who was champion back in 1991. Sydney was his fourth Olympics, but he had yet to win a medal, and his best individual performance had been 16th back in Seoul (1988). Fairweather qualified eighth in Sydney in the ranking round, which was led by three Koreans, Jang Yong-Ho qualifying first. Because of the rapid turnover on the Korean team, none of the Koreans were among their recent World Champions, although second-placed O Gyo-Mun had been an individual bronze medalist in Atlanta. But Jang went out in round three while the other two Koreans lost in the quarter-finals. Fairweather advanced to the final, his only close match in the semis against Dutch archer Wietse van Alten, which he won 112-110. Fairweather won his gold medal by defeating upstart American Vic Wunderle in the final, 113-106.
