Korea, with a team of Im Si-hyeon, Ansan (Gwangju Women's University), and Choi Mi-sun (Gwangju Bank), won against China with a set score of 5-3 in the final of the women's archery team event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at the archery range at the Fuyang Inhu Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 6th.

In the final 4 sets, Korea was on the verge of defeat.

‘Three-time Olympic gold medalist’ Ansan fired Korea’s fourth shot to score 8 points.

However, Choi Mi-sun and Si-hyeon Im were able to escape the crisis by scoring 10 points in succession.

Then, the Chinese players in Saero collapsed, shooting two 8-pointers.

Im Si-hyun, who had been the last and most important shooter ever since the quarterfinals on this day, showed incredible concentration in the final by hitting 6 of the 8 arrows he shot at 10 points.

Im Si-hyun, who came into the joint reporting area (mixed zone) with her 'sisters' after putting on a gold medal, smiled and said, "I worked out hard together, so I shot with the intention of finishing well and coming out, but I went in well."

If the gold medal in the mixed team event (mixed competition) won two days ago is, as he puts it, “a medal I won thanks to my brother (Woo-seok Lee),” it seems safe to say that he has the largest share of the gold medal in the team event that day.

Ansan said, "I went up with the mindset of, 'Let's not just shoot for 8 points.

Let's only get in 9 points,' but I was very angry and upset when I shot 8 points in a situation where I was not satisfied with the scores in the 1st to 3rd sets," and "I'm glad I finished well from behind." “He said.

At the same time, Im Si-hyeon ‘admitted’ that he had the biggest stake in winning this gold medal.

However, Im Si-hyeon said with a flushed face, "I don't think that the reason I was able to shoot like that was because my sisters did a good job in front of me.

I was able to use it."

Korea, which has never missed a gold medal in the women's team event since the 1998 Bangkok Games, succeeded in winning its seventh consecutive Asian Games title.

'Eldest Sister' Choi Mi-sun said, "I just found out that she has achieved her 7th consecutive victory," and she pledged, "I am so happy that we can continue this great record, and I will work hard to achieve 8th consecutive victory."

Choi Mi-sun, the gold medalist in the team event at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, competed in an international all-around competition for the first time in seven years.

Ansan and Im Si-hyeon will face off in the women's individual finals held on the 7th.

When Choi Mi-sun was asked, 'Who do you think will win?' she waved her hands and said, "I don't know either."

If Im Si-hyeon wins, she will become the first Asian Games archery triple gold medalist since the 1986 Seoul Games, when there were 12 gold medals in archery.

Ansan, who won her first Olympic triple gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, will be competing for her first Asian Games individual medal.

Ansan said, “The two players talked about having fun and not feeling pressured because the Korean player will win no matter what game they play.”
