World record for Im Dong Hyun in the men's Archery
Im Dong Hyun of Korea celebrates breaking the world record during the Archery men's individual ranking round as part of the London 2012 Olympic Games at Lord's Cricket Ground on 27 July 2012.

Im Dong-hyun broke his own 72-arrow mark of 696 by three points and was also part of a record in the Team shoot.

Alongside Kim Bubmin and Oh Jin-hyek he helped register a 216-arrow total of 2,087 - smashing the world record by 18 points.

The day's shooting got under way in perfect conditions, with the Korean trio setting the standard from the off.

They took the three top seedings, with world number two Im again leading the way, breaking the world record for the third occasion since the London 2012 test event.

Despite rain affecting the second half of the ranking shoot, Im still finished with a superb 699.

Kim was just one point behind with 698 and Oh closed with 690.

The top five was rounded out by Great Britain's Larry Godfrey, who recorded a personal best of 680, and Japan's Takaharu Furukawa one point further back.

World number one Brady Ellison of Team USA came 10th with a total of 676 and Ukraine's reigning Olympic champion Viktor Ruban was down in 43rd with 660.
