The Archery World Cup Final is set to determine the world’s best archer
Archery Recurve National Team Challenges World Archery’s ‘King of Kings’
The Korea Archery Federation (KAF) announced on Aug. 8 that “five archers – Lee Woo-seok (Kolon) and Kim Woo-jin (Cheongju City Hall) in the men’s archery recurve, Lim Im-hyun (Korea Gymnastics University) and Kang Chae-young (Hyundai Mobis) in the women’s recurve, and Cho Soo-ah (Hyundai Mobis) in the compound – will participate in the 2023 Modern Archery World Cup Finals in Hermosillo, Mexico, on Sept. 9 and 10.”
The 2023 Hyundai Archery World Cup Final will crown the winners of the men’s and women’s recurve and compound individual events from World Cups 1-4 this year, as well as the top three World Cup ranking points earned in World Cup individual events, and the host country’s best athlete.
There is a limit of two athletes from the same country per event.
South Korea qualified for the final after “Ace” Kim Woo-jin won the individual gold medal at the fourth and final World Cup event.
Kim won the event last year, and if he comes out on top this year, it will be his fifth career Final title in the men’s recurve, tying him with Brady Ellison (USA) for the most.
Lee Woo-seok enters the event as the No. 1 ranking point earner for the 2023 World Cup after winning bronze at the third World Cup and silver at the fourth.
Earlier this month, Lee showed his meteoric rise to the top of the leaderboard at the Jung Mong Kubae Korean Archery Championships at the War Memorial in Yongsan-gu, Seoul.
The ‘golden child’, Lee Im-hyun, won back-to-back pu titles at the second and third World Cups to qualify for the Final, while Kang Chae-young earned a spot in the Final with a silver medal at the second World Cup to move into second place in the World Cup ranking points.
Having won the women’s individual title at the 2019 Final, Kang will be aiming for her second career crown.
In the compound women’s event, newcomer Jo Soo-ah (GBR), who won the individual final at World Cup 2 with a victory over World No. 1 Ella Gibson (GBR), 카지노사이트킴 will be looking to make a statement in the Final.
