Women's Archery Wiped Out by AG's 7th Consecutive Loss

[Asian Games] ‘You can’t Fail Twice’… Berlin Disaster, Women's Archery Wiped Out by AG's 7th Consecutive Loss

Korean women's archery, which had the worst performance in Berlin, made a perfect comeback in Hangzhou and reaffirmed its status as the 'best'.

At the 2023 World Archery Championships held in Berlin, Germany last August, the archery team had to be content with two gold medals.

They won one gold medal each in the men's team event and the mixed team event, but only received 'no medals' in other events. 온라인카지노

In particular, her performance in the women's team competition was shocking.

At the time, Korea, whose team consisted of Ansan (Gwangju Women's University), Kang Chae-young (Hyundai Mobis), and Im Si-hyeon (Korea National Sport University), lost 3-5 to Indonesia in the round of 16, which was the first game.

The women's team event is the event in which Korean archery has shown its strongest performance.

At the Tokyo Olympics, they achieved an unprecedented 9 consecutive wins in the team event, and at the World Championships, they have not left the podium even once since finishing 5th in Lyon in 1999.

The overall atmosphere of the national team darkened after experiencing a miserable failure in the women's team event at the beginning of the competition.

None of the Korean players passed the semifinals of the men's and women's individual competitions.

It was the first time in 44 years since the 1979 Berlin Games, when the women's team first competed, that the women's national team failed to win a single medal in the individual and women's team events at the World Championships.

Berlin's bad weather was cited as the cause of the slump.

It was also pointed out as a problem that the national team tended not to show their full potential at the world championships held in Europe.

The Korea Archery Association, which had spared no effort in supporting the national team, was embarrassed by providing an identical 'set' to the archery range at the Berlin Olympic Stadium, where the world championships were held, at the Jincheon Athletes' Village and even playing German-language announcements.

Nevertheless, trust in the ‘Taegeuk Archer’ continued.

I saw no problems with the players’ skills and mental strength.

Yang Chang-hoon, coach of the women's national team, said she ordered her players to be bolder and not dwell on their mistakes.

The women's national team advanced without hesitation.

They succeeded in rebounding by winning the team event at the 4th Paris Tournament of the 2023 Hyundai World Cup held at the end of August.

He then won a gold medal at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, the most important stage of the year.

Korea, with its team consisting of Im Si-hyeon, An San, and Choi Mi-seon (Gwangju Bank), succeeded in winning its 7th consecutive team event at the Fuyang Inhu Sports Center Archery Range in Hangzhou, China on the 6th.

In the quarterfinals, they defeated Indonesia 6-0, avenging their loss two months ago and starting the challenge with ease.

In the semifinals, they defeated India, who were performing well at the compound, 6-2, and in the finals, they defeated China, who received one-sided support from their home fans.

Breathing was perfect.

Even if a mistake was made, the next shooter immediately shot 9 to 10 points and maintained his solidity.

Although the weather was not as bad as in Berlin, the drizzling rain and frequent headwinds did not hinder the women's national team's golden challenge.

The women's national team has booked a 'sweep' of gold medals in this tournament.

Previously, Im Si-hyeon won the gold medal in the mixed event along with Lee Woo-seok (Kolon) of the men's team.

In the individual exhibition held on the 7th, Im Si-hyeon and Ansan (Gwangju Women's University) will face each other, so the third gold medal has already been secured.
