594 out of 600: the great pairing PARK Sehui and the Inno AXT broke the world record for the 60-arrow qualification at 18 metres in Nîmes, during the third stage of the Indoor archery World cup.
The previous recurve women’s world record for the 60-arrow qualification at 18 metres was 592, held by Frenchwoman Berengere Schuh since the 2009 World Archery Europe Indoor Championships.
Six years later it was finally broken. Park, who shoots for Korean professional team LH at this third stage of the Indoor Archery World Cup, posted 297 for her first 30 arrows and followed it up with a second 297 for 594 out of 600 total. Her last two ends were both perfect 30s.
Aged 20, Park Sehui’s 594 also increases the junior world record, which stood at 591.
