Olympic Women Archery Final
The nation is expected to win in Tokyo again, despite Kang Chae Young, An San and Jang Minhee all having never attended an Olympics before. Perhaps that lack of experience shouldn’t be underestimated.
Especially since it is Chinese Taipei, the team that shocked Korea in the ’s-Hertogenbosch final two years ago, that arrives in Japan as world champions.
Is it finally the time to upset the winning streak, unseat the giants of women’s archery and wrestle the recurve women’s Olympic team title away from Korea?
World ranking (top 5)
As of the start of the Olympic Games on 23 July
- India (not competing)
There’s no doubt that Korea is the favourite to extend its winning streak in the women’s team event to nine consecutive Olympics. The only reason the nation is ranked outside the top spot is inactivity on the international stage, choosing to forego the Hyundai Archery World Cup circuit post-pandemic in favour of preparing for the Olympics at home.
Who has the tools to knock the Korean women off the top spot? Chinese Taipei, for sure, having done so in the final of the last world championships and… that’s it. Anybody else would be a huge shock. That said, the third spot on the podium is wide open.
