The Australian men's archery team has just missed out on a berth at the London Olympics.
Needing to finish in the top three at the final qualifying tournament at Ogden, Utah, the team of Taylor Worth, Ryan Tyack and Sky Kim downed Turkey and Romania on Thursday (AEST) to advance to the semi-finals, where they were soundly beaten 221-209 by India.
That left Australia to take on Taiwan in a shootout for the 12th and final spot on offer for the London Games, with the Asian nation winning 216-214.
The narrow loss to Taiwan means the only Australians competing in the London Olympic archery tournament will be Worth and Elisa Barnard in the men's and women's individual events respectively.
Both Worth and Barnard will be making their Olympic debuts in London.
The Australian women's team failed to reach the knockout round at the qualifying tournament in Utah.
Australia has been represented in archery at every Olympics since the sport made its return to the program at the 1972 Munich Games.
Simon Fairweather won the men's individual event on home soil in Sydney in 2000 and countryman Tim Cuddihy claimed bronze four years later in Athens.
The London archery tournament will take place at Lord's cricket ground.
