Archery set up in Rio.

South Korean Olympic archery team fail at team high five attempt

Published 2 Comments

There has been plenty of action from the Olympics so far this summer.

You've had nasty looking injuries in the gymnasium and during the cycling, you've had Michael Phelps being Michael Phelps in the swimming pool, and you've had a perfectly blue diving pool turn a swampy green in the space of a few days.

It's safe to say the Olympics has had it's fair share of highlights since the opening ceremony one week ago.

With just over a week left, there will be plenty more action to come, but one of the slightly amusing fails happened during the female archery competition.

The South Korean team were seemingly happy enough with their efforts and decided to go for a team high five.

However, a three-way high five is quite a bit trickier than your standard two person one and that's something the South Korean trio found out.

After putting their arrows away and making their way from the stage, the three all went for a high five at the same time, which resulted in two of them missing completely, and the third just left hanging.

You can see the high five attempt from the South Korean's in the video below.

Following the failed attempt at a three-way high five, the trio decided on just touching hands and putting them together in the middle to represent a job well done.

However, it was the South Korean's who could afford to smile after the high five incident as it was they who took home the gold medal after beating Russia 5-1 in the final.
