The United States repeated as Olympic silver medalists in team archery Saturday after running into a deadeye South Korean team in the men's gold medal final.

Brady Ellison, Jake Kaminski, Zach Garrett displayed the form that took them to the final, but Bon-chan Ku, Woo-jin Kim and Seung-yun Lee were better. The South Koreans didn't drop a set at all in the competition.

Ellison and Kaminski were part of the U.S. team that won a silver medal in 2012, losing to Italy in the gold medal match on the last arrow shot.

This one wasn't as close.
