Silver For Archers

LONDON -- The U.S. men's archery team came a point short of its gold-medal goal Saturday at the Lord's Cricket Round, falling to Italy, 219-218, in the final match.

The three-man squad settled for a silver medal, the first won by the USA in these Olympics. Michele Franghilli shot a 10 on the final shot of the match to give Italy the gold. Elma native Jake Kaminski shot a 8 on his final arrow after making three 10's in succession. Kaminski outscored his teammate Brady Ellison, the world's top-ranked archer, over the semifinal and final rounds.
