RIO DE JANEIRO - South Korea was nearly flawless to beat the United States in the men's team archery final Saturday at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
The Korean powerhouse scored in the 10 range on 15 of its 18 arrows to knock off the Americans, 6-0. South Korea has now captured five of the eight Olympic gold medals in the men's team event.
The U.S. took home silver for a second straight Olympics. Australia beat China for bronze.
New world-record holder Kim Woojin scored a 10 on five of his six shots in the final. His teammate Ku Bonchan was 6 for 6.
So convincing was the win that American Jake Kaminski bowed to the Koreans after the match. Kaminski, Zach Garrett and Brady Ellison combined for 10 shots that scored a 10.
