The event consisted of a double FITA round. For each round, the archer shot 36 arrows at each of four distances—70, 60, 50, and 30 metres. The highest score for each arrow was 10 points, giving a possible maximum of 2880 points.

For the first time in Olympic archery history, the women's gold medalist outscored the men's (although women did not have to shoot as far as the men). In fact, both of the Soviet women who earned medals in the women's competition had higher scores than the winner of the men's competition. Finland, which had earned gold in the men's competition, also won bronze in the women's.
