Brady Ellison returns for his second go-around at the Olympics after participating in the 2008 games in Beijing, where he placed ninth in the team competition and 27th individually in archery.
Ellison has put together quite a resume among American archers. He placed first in both individual and team at the Pan-American games in both 2010 and 2011. He won the World Cup individual title in Edinburgh, Great Britain in 2010 and again in Istanbul in 2011.
The Glendale native was hindered by a hip dislocation during his last Olympics so this time around he'll be looking to show what he is really capable of on the biggest stage of them all.
The medal events for men's individual archery are on Aug. 3 and the men's team medal events are on July 28.
