The Olympic record was broken twice as three South Koreans, who finished in the top three spots in the individual rankings, led the way into the final 16 of the men's individual competition Monday at Sydney.

South Korean Jang Yong-ho upped the record for 18 arrows by scoring 172 points in his pummeling of Kuresa Tupua, a 16-year-old from American Samoa, 172-98, in the first round.

Australia's Simon Fairweather tied the record of 170 only to see that beaten a few minutes later by Jocelyn de Grandis of France, who hit a 171.

They met in the second round and Fairweather prevailed, 161-150.
