Archery is a national sport in Bhutan. Traditional Bhutanese archery differs from Olympic standards, The distance to the target is about 130 metres and the small targets are cut from wood and brightly painted. Traditional Bhutanese archery is a social event and competitions are organised between villages, towns, and amateur teams. Traditionally, Bhutanese bows and arrow are made of bamboo, but now have been replaced by modern archery equipment .
