2018 Micras Games
All four events are recurve archery events, held under the World Archery-approved 70-meter distance and rules. The competition starts with an initial ranking round involving all 64 archers of each gender. Each archer shoots a total of 72 arrows to be seeded from 1–64 according to their score.
The ranking round is also used to seed the teams from 1 to 12, by aggregating the individual scores for the members of each team.
Each event is played in a single-elimination tournament format, except for the semi-final losers, who will play-off to decide the bronze medal winner.
In the individual events, all 64 competitors enter the competition at the first round, the round of 64. The draw is seeded according to the result of the ranking round so the first seed shoots against the 64th seed in the first round.
Each match is scored using the Archery Olympic Round, consisting of the best-of-five sets, with three arrows per set. The winner of each set receives two points, and if the scores in the set are tied then each archer would receive one point. If at the end of five sets the score is tied at 5–5, a single arrow shoot-off is held and the closest to the center is declared the winner.
In the team events, the top four seeded teams from the ranking round will receive a bye to the quarter-final. The remaining eight teams, seeded 5th to 12th, will compete for the remaining four places in the quarter-finals.
The teams event follows the same Archery Olympic Round set system as the individuals event.
