Twenty-year-old Il Sung-hyun, who passed the national team selection match this year as the No. 1 player, has emerged as the national team’s youngest ace by performing the best on the World Cup stage. Ansan is the best Korean archery star in name and reality, winning three Olympic archery medals for the first time in history at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Ansan will try to win two gold medals in the individual and team events in this competition. South Korean archery reserved one gold and one silver in the women’s individual event. It is the first time in nine years that a Korean player has won an individual gold medal at the Asian Games since Jung Dasomi Hyundai Department Store at the 2014 Incheon Games.
South Korea’s archery, which has produced three consecutive women’s individual gold medalists since the 2006 Doha Games, has given China gold medals at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games.
In the men’s individual semifinals, Lee Woo-suk Kolon lost 5-6 28-28 28-29 29-26 30-27 27-28 <9-10> after a shoot-off match with China’s Chi Xiangxiou.
While Oh Jin-hyuk Hyundai Steel was eliminated in the round of 16 the previous day, Lee Woo-suk also lost in the semifinals, and South Korea’s men’s archery failed to achieve its goal of winning gold medals in the individual event for the fifth consecutive time.
