With a total of 5 medals including 3 gold medals (Claudia Mandia, Nicolas Cambakidis, Alyssia Tromans-Ansell), Win&Win Archery shooters went through a thrilling competition in Nîmes, France.
Claudia Mandia outlasted Korean first-time finalist Jin Yun in the recurve women’s gold medal match, winning a shoot-off 10-9 to take the top spot on the podium.
Bronze in Nimes went to Britain’s Naomi Folkard, who only fell to Jin in the semifinals after knocking out the first- and eighth-seeded Koreans in Park Sehui – also the indoor world record holder – and Kim Eun Jung. Folkard, who hinted at retiring from competition during her fourth consecutive Olympic Games in Rio, beat Randi Degn in four sets, 6-2.
