The Americans' silver was the country's first medal of the games. South Korea took bronze.

Michele Frangilli, Marco Galiazzo and Mauro Nespoli hugged and raised their hands in celebration after the final arrow beat the Americans 219-218 at Lord's Cricket Ground. The gold was Italy's first ever in the event.

Defending champions South Korea were knocked out of the Olympic men's team archery competition by the United States 224-219 in the semi-finals on Saturday.

South Korea won the men's team gold medal in the last three Olympics.

After knocking out Korea, U.S. coach Lee Ki-sik celebrated with his team as if they had won the gold medal. Lee, who coached the Korean national team to multiple gold medals and Australia's Simon Fairweather to gold in 2000, said they were overjoyed to have beaten the mighty South Koreans.
