In the final evaluation match for the 2024 national archery team, which selects Thai archers to participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics, Kim Woo-jin (Cheongju City Hall) and Im Si-hyeon (Korea National Sport University) passed the first hurdle as first place men and women, respectively.

Kim Woo-jin, the gold medalist in the men’s team event at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, ranked first with a total of 41 points in the final first evaluation match of the 2024 national archery team held at the Kim Su-nyeong Archery Range in Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province on the 29th.

Next, ‘Tokyo double winner’ Kim Je-deok (Yecheon County Office) took second place with 35.5 points, and Lee Woo-seok (Kolon) took third place with 32.5 points.

The Korea Archery Association will select three male and female athletes by adding up the points from the first evaluation match and the second evaluation match to be held from the 5th to the 11th of next month at the Jinho International Archery Range in Yecheon, Gyeongsangbuk-do, and give them the right to participate in major international competitions such as the Paris Olympics.

In the case of the men’s national team, the difference in total points between Lee Woo-seok, who took 3rd place, and Jeong Tae-young (Kolon), who took 4th place (22.5 points) in this first evaluation match, is as much as 10 points, so unless an unexpected event occurs, 1st to 3rd place currently have a ticket to Paris. There seems to be a high possibility of winning.

At the age of 42, Oh Jin-hyuk (Hyundai Steel), the ‘invincible archer’ who once again renewed his title as the oldest national archery team member and took on the challenge of being selected for the Olympic Games again, competed in good faith with prominent juniors, but was not awarded points. With a total of 12 points, he ranked last among the 8 players, making his prospects for going to Paris uncertain.

In the women’s national team, Im Si-hyeon, winner of three gold medals at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, finished the first evaluation match leading the way with a total of 33 points.

Next, Choi Mi-seon (32 points, Gwangju Bank) and Jeon Hoon-young (28 points, Incheon City Hall) took second and third place, respectively.

In the women’s national team, the gap in total points between Jeon Hoon-young and 4th place (25.5 points) Nam Su-hyeon (Suncheon City Hall) is only 2.5 points, so it is an unpredictable match, so it is currently difficult to be certain that 1st to 3rd place will make it to Paris. .

The women’s national team will attempt to win its 10th consecutive team event in Paris.

In the compound team, which selects four men and four players each to participate in major international competitions, Yang Jae-won (Seoul) and So Chae-won (Hyundai Mobis) took the lead for men and women, respectively. 토토사이트
