Korea earns clean sweep in recurve team events
Korea claimed a clean sweep in the recurve team events at the second stage of the Hyundai Archery World Cup in Shanghai, China.
“I am satisfied and proud of myself,” said Kang. “My mind is stronger, better controlled than last year.”
She explained having made some arrangements and tuning in her equipment which seems to be working well for her.
Having scooped two wins in the morning session in Shanghai, Kang said she was now focused on carrying that momentum into the individual matches in the afternoon.
China responded winning the third set, but Korea clinched victory in the fourth, China having to settle for silver after taking bronze in the women’s.
“I think I did well in my first international match of the year,” said Kim Woojin, reflecting on the gold. “I always keep chasing my goals and try to achieve them.”
“Last year, I did well; and I am trying to take motivation from the good results.”
The bronze-medal match in the men’s was a thriller, Japan eventually taking it over Spain thanks to a 28 in the tiebreaker.
Türkiye claimed the bronze medal over Indonesia.
Competition concludes with recurve finals this afternoon in Shanghai.
