Announced today that it will officially sponsor the Hyundai Jeongmong Gubae Korea Archery Championships 2023, organized by the Korea Archery Association. Established in 2016, the tournament is the most prestigious archery competition in Korea, where Korean archers with world-class skills compete. It is now in its third year and has been significantly expanded to commemorate the 60th anniversary of archery in Korea. The tournament will be held from August 31 to September 3 at the Yongsan War Memorial and Mokdong Sports Complex Main Stadium.

“We will help Korean archers improve their skills by gaining practical experience on a high-level stage,” said Hyundai Motor Group, “and we decided to sponsor the tournament to increase public interest in the 60-year-old sport.” Hyundai is the title sponsor, with Kia, Hyundai Mobis, and Hyundai Steel as official sponsors.

In addition to the existing recurve event, a compound event was added to give more athletes the opportunity to participate. Woo Jin Kim, Jeduk Kim, and An An will be competing, as well as gold medalists from the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games, and the Korean National Team. A total of 209 athletes (150 recurve, 59 compound) will compete, 온라인카지노 the largest number since the event’s inception.

The tournament trophy is placed on the main field of the Mokdong Sports Complex, where matches are held on days 1 and 2 of the tournament.

The total prize fund, which was 450 million won in 2019, has also been increased to 520 million won. The winner will receive 100 million won (recurring), and 25 percent of the prize money will be given to the coach of the winning athlete as a research grant for performance improvement, so that both the athlete and the coach will benefit.

“The tournament is being held ahead of the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games in late September and the 2024 Paris Olympics next year,” said an official from Hyundai Motor Group, “and we expect it to help athletes improve their performance and motivation.”

The choice of Peace Plaza at the Yongsan War Memorial in Seoul as the venue for the main and final rounds was based on the fact that the archery events at the Paris Olympics will be held at the Place de l’Invalides, France’s war memorial, and that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice.

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of archery in Korea, various programs have been organized to popularize the sport. To lower the barrier to entry, a special stadium with a large screen and sound system was set up in the Peace Plaza of the War Memorial and a 700-seat grandstand with free admission for all. On the final day of the tournament, in addition to the final matches, a special match featuring Korean archery legends will be held.

Hyundai Motor Group has been actively supporting the Korean Archery Association for 38 years, from the inauguration of Chairman Emeritus Chung Mong-koo in 1985 to the current Chairman Chung Eui-sun, 카지노사이트존 who is serving his fifth consecutive term as president of the organization.
