Dozens of people have been turned away from the archery event in central London victims, it seems, of hoax tickets.
Others arrived at Lord's Cricket Ground because of a misunderstanding. They thought the event billed as "unticketed" meant you could just turn up on the day.
Many vented their anger at volunteers but were told that their tickets presumably purchased from unofficial sites weren't valid because Friday's preliminary rounds weren't even open to the public.
Meanwhile, inside, South Korea's team scored a world record with 2,087 points to take first place.
