Alvarino was appearing in a World Cup Final for the first time since his victory in 2015, also on Mexican soil in Mexico City, and earned a deserved silver having battled past Brazil’s Marcus D’Almeida and then 2021 bronze medallist and reigning Olympic champion Mete Gazoz.
The bronze medal went to Gazoz to make it two bronzes in success for the Turk, beating Kim Je Deok 6-4 in a five-set thriller.
The pair traded opening sets, with the Korean responding to losing the first set with a perfect 30 in the second before tying the third 29-29.
It was the fourth set that was crucial, Gazoz producing a 30 to put himself 5-3 ahead, which ultimately proved enough as the fifth set was tied.
The 2022 Hyundai Archery World Cup Final was held on 15-16 October in Tlaxcala, Mexico.
