Sat., July 28, 2012

Archery fans were angered Friday when they were turned away for preliminary rounds at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. The ranking rounds were not advertised as open to the public, Olympic officials said Friday. The officials added that they had sent warnings about buying tickets from unofficial websites. An Olympic spokeswoman said, which sold fake tickets to the event, has been shut down. South Korea’s team scored a world record with 2,087 points for first place. Legally blind Im Dong-hyun also set a world record with 699 points, beating his own record by three arrows. – Associated Press
