For the first time at the Olympic Games, technology has been used to record scores in archery events. Until now, the judging has been done solely by the human eye using a specialised scope. Now, Omega has introduced a new target with a built-in scanning system. When the arrow hits the target, two scanners run lengthways and widthways to calculate the arrow’s distance from the centre point. The system has a 0.2mm accuracy which is impossible for the human eye to detect. It’s also fast, delivering results within 1 second from the moment the target is hit.
