South Korea’s national archery team, dubbed the “World’s Strongest,” has come to terms with a lackluster performance at the World Championships 메이저사이트.
In particular, women’s archery failed to win any medals, both individually and as a team.

The archery team even set up a fictional Berlin World Championship set at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village to train.
The results were disastrous.
Korea’s recurve team, led by Kim Woo-jin and Kim Im-hyun, won gold in the mixed and men’s team events.
It was a close call, but it was a dismal performance for the self-proclaimed “world’s strongest” archery team.
In particular, the performance of the women’s team, which failed to win a single medal in both the individual and team events, has been described as “shocking.
The women’s team lost to Indonesia, led by South Korean Park Young-gul, in the round of 16, and in the individual competition, Ahn, Lim Im-hyun, and Kang Chae-young failed to cross the quarterfinal threshold.
This is the first time in 44 years that the Korean women’s team has finished with ‘no medals’ in both the individual and team events at the World Championships, since their first appearance in 1979.
The men’s team also failed to win a medal as Lee Woo-seok, Kim Woo-jin, and Kim Jeduk, who competed individually, were eliminated in the round of 32, round of 16, and round of 8, respectively.
The local weather, with strong winds, was cited as a reason for the team’s poor performance, but this is not an excuse as it applies to all teams, not just us.
A more fundamental reason is the overall “upward leveling” of each country’s skill.
The globalization of archery means that it is no longer a given that South Korea will win international competitions.
The archery team will travel to Paris, France, to compete in the fourth edition of the World Cup, which serves as a test stage for next year’s Paris Olympics.
