OLYMPICS

AP Article

Any big-time baseball fan will be awash in familiarity when visiting Lord's Cricket Ground.

Lord's is home to the archery competition, and the event kicked off on Friday morning.

Lord's is an historic place, the cricket equivalent to Wrigley Field — and the similarities are striking. Nestled in a neighborhood of London that has apartments just across the street (rooftop pint, anyone?), Lord's features brick archways, perfectly manicured lawns and an intimate atmosphere with seats right on top of the action.
