Celebrating 25 Years of Archery at the World Level

Today marks 25 years since the sport of archery found itself on the World stage. On July 25, 1992 Spanish Paralympian, Antonio Rebello, launched a flaming arrow to light the cauldron of the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games.   This one iconic archery shot, witnessed by an estimated two billion people on television around the world, is still today the benchmark for Olympic flame lightings.

 

A US company, Easton, was enlisted by the Games’ organizers to build more than 1,000 test arrows for the event—with only one chance to get it right, nothing was left to chance.

 

The result was a spectacular and iconic event that set the gold standard for Olympic Games’ opening ceremonies.
