Kim Woojin storms to fourth Hyundai Archery World Cup Final crown

by admin

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.

Kim had romped through his quarterfinal with a trio of perfect sets to beat Mexican Jesus Flores before beating compatriot Kim Je Deok 7-1 in four sets.

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.
