KIM Yu Mi from Korea took the first place this weekend in Telford, Great Britain, for the European Archery Festival and the third leg of the Indoor Archery World Cup.
It was the grand world premiere for the new Inno AXT handle!
Since tying the world record (592) during the first qualification session in Telford on Friday along with the INNO AXT handle, Korean archer KIM Yu Mi dropped just two sets, one against Brit Naomi FOLKARD and one against Aida ROMAN (MEX) in the semis, on her way to the recurve women’s final. Against teammate PARK Sehui (Inno Max, Inno Power limbs), KIM’s victory did not come so easily ! Both shot nothing but 29s or above, out of a possible 30, each set – tying after the regulation five were done. In the one-arrow shoot-off, one Korean shot a 10, before the other matched it – and nearly exactly. The judge could not decide a winner, so the field was reset, and the tiebreaker rerun. Second time around, KIM Yu Mi came out on top – although it was close, and 10 versus 10 again. Olympic silver medallist Aida ROMAN prevented a Korean clean sweep of the podium by beating JEON Sungeun in the bronze medal match.
Congratulations to all Win&Win archers there, visitors and volunteers from EAF2014 for their very warm welcome!
