  • Height: 5'10" / 1.78m
  • Weight: 159 lbs / 72.1 kg

  • Career Highlights: Since archery returned to the Olympic program in 1972, no man or woman has won individual gold medals in consecutive Summer Games. Ruban will try to become the first to accomplish that feat in London and join American Darrell Pace as the only archer to win two individual golds over the past 40 years. Ruban previously made history by becoming the first archer from his country to win a gold medal in 2008. In the finals in Beijing, he edged former world champion Park Kyung-Mo of South Korea by one point with a bull’s-eye on his final arrow. During the Athens Games, Ruban was a member of the bronze medal-winning team but couldn't get past the round of 16 in the individual competition. Besides his Olympic success, Ruban finished third at the 2009 world championships and earned a silver medal at the World Cup finals in 2008. He also won a World University Games title in 2009.
