The South Korean women’s archery team has achieved the feat of winning its seventh consecutive Asian Games gold medal.
In the final against hosts China.
The team was threatened with a head-scratching decision that could have cost them the match, but they held their nerve and overwhelmed their opponents with ‘skill’.
The women’s archery team’s seventh consecutive victory was even more impressive.
The Korean women’s archery team of Lim Im-hyun (Korea Gymnastics University), An An (Gwangju Women’s University) and Choi Mi-sun (Gwangju Bank) defeated China 5-3 (58-58, 55-53, 55-56, 57-54) in the women’s team archery competition at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Fuyang Throat Sports Center Archery Range in Hangzhou, China on Saturday. 카지노사이트
It was the seventh gold medal in a row, dating back to the 1998 Bangkok Games, and cemented South Korea’s position as the world’s top-ranked team.
The “questionable call” came in the third set, when Korea led 3-1.
Heiligan shot her fifth arrow with China leading 36-26. The arrow appeared to hit the outside of the 10-point bullseye.
It was recorded as a 9 on the broadcast screen. 카지노
South Korea then tied the set at 55-55 with 10 consecutive points from Choi Mi-sun and Choi Im-hyun to end the third set.
The score was 4-2 in favor of the Koreans with one point apiece.
However, the atmosphere was strange.
The referee took a magnifying glass to scrutinize Heiligan’s arrow and corrected the score to 10 points instead of 9.
The Korean players were dumbfounded by the decision, and even the Chinese players were open-mouthed and surprised.

Worse, it was unclear on what basis the referee had adjusted the score.
At other international tournaments, such as the Archery World Cup, they show close-ups of arrows that are close to the line, but we didn’t see that here.
It’s no wonder that the call turned into a controversy over favoritism.
The call changed the score of the third set from a 55-55 tie to a 55-56 South Korean defeat. A 4-2 set lead was also changed to a 3-3 tie.
If South Korea had gone into the fourth set with a 4-2 lead, they would have needed to tie to win the gold medal, while China would have needed to win to advance to the shootout.
However, with the score tied at 3-3, the final four sets would decide the winner of the gold and silver medals. It was a close call.
But there’s a reason why the women’s national archery team is the “best in the world”.
They could have been rattled by the blown call, but in the fourth set, Ahn San’s nine points and Choi Mi-Sun and Lim Shi-Hyun’s 10 consecutive points helped them take control.
With the score at 29-28, An San’s arrow was only good for eight points, but Choi Mi-Sun and Lim Si-Hyun answered with another 10 points to decide the match.
The Chinese self-destructed as their last two shots were only eight points.

In the end, the gold medal was up for grabs, with South Korea taking the final four sets 57-54.
Regardless of the dubious call, the athletes were all smiles as they basked in the moment of victory after winning their seventh consecutive Asian Games women’s archery team title.
With this victory, the ‘youngest ace’, Lee Im-hyun, won her second gold medal of the Games after her mixed gold.
On July 7, she will compete in the individual final against Ansan, and she will try to win her first triple title in 37 years.
Ansan, who won three gold medals at the last Tokyo Olympics, will also challenge for a second title in the individual event with Im.
Korea’s position as the world’s strongest country has been reaffirmed through this tournament, and even the final stage will end with a happy family fight between Korean athletes.
