London 2012 has not had long to wait as for its first world records, with the actual South Korean archery team setting two new landmarks placed at Lord's.

Im Dong-hyun, who is visually impaired, set an individual record within Friday's ranking round. He also joined forces with Kim Bub-min and Oh Jin-hyek to record a new new best within the actual team event.

South Korea's archery team is regarded just as the actual best within the actual world.

Britain's Larry Godfrey shot a new personal best to finish fourth 64.

Alan Wills registered his third-highest score the actual year to finish 42nd, and Simon Terry was 50th.

In the actual women's competition, Naomi Folkard led the actual way as for Britain within 42nd, six-time Olympian Alison Williamson was 47th and Amy Oliver 57th.

The men ranked ninth out the actual 12 teams, with the actual women's scores only good enough as for 11th place.

Dong-hyun, who won team golds placed at the actual past two Games, broke his own 72-arrow mark 696 simply by three points.

He can barely read the actual big letters placed at the actual top an optician's chart, aiming placed at a new "yellow blob" within the actual target 70 metres away.

Alongside Bubmin and Jin-hyek, Dong-hyun helped set a new 216-arrow total 2,087, eclipsing the actual previous world record simply by 18 points.

He does not compete within the actual Paralympics just as there are no events placed at the actual Games as for blind or visually impaired archers.

Lord's played host to the actual men's individual ranking round on Friday morning and will hold the actual men's team gold medal match on Saturday.
