N o w i s t h e t i m e t o b u i l d o n R i o ’s s u c c e s s The Rio 2016 Olympic Games captured the attention of most of the world’s population and archery, along with the other Olympic sports, was at the centre of the public’s attention. I pass my wholehearted congratulations, and thanks, on to the athletes, coaches and support staff who committed years of their lives to training for what was an incredible display of archery, our sport, on the grandest stage.

So far, we are working from preliminary viewing figures, but it’s safe to say that Rio built on the broadcast success archery received in London in 2012, with positive numbers coming from key markets including France, Germany, and regions in Asia and the Americas. Nearly half the globe’s population watched the 350,000 total hours of Games coverage on television.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 5-12 August Rio’s famous samba carnival stadium, the Sambodromo, hosted 64 men and 64 women for the archery competition at the 2016 Olympic Games. The men’s and women‘s team events were decided using the set system, after it was introduced for the individual competitions at London 2012. As Christo Redentor watched over the competition field from his mountain-top perch in the far distance, the Korean team made history. For the first-time ever, a single national Olympic team walked away with all four Olympic Champion titles. Ku Bonchan (pictured left) won the recurve men’s gold medal, Chang Hye Jin the recurve women’s gold – and both were part of the podium-topping performances from the Korean men’s and women’s teams.

K

u Bonchan became only the second Korean athlete in history to win Olympic gold in the men’s individual competition. On 12 August in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, it happened at the first opportunity after Oh Jin Hyek, Korea’s first winner in the competition, was crowned in 2012. “It means honour and pride,” said Ku while looking at his medal. “I’m the second Korean man to become an Olympic Champion and it happened only four years after the Games in London.” Born in Kyung-Ju, a city in the southeast of South Korea, close to where teammate and fellow Rio 2016 Olympic Champion Chang Hye Jin hails from, Ku reflected on a journey that started in 2004, when he was 12 years old. “I was in fifth grade at school when one of my teachers suggested I could be good for archery,” he said. He pursued the suggestion and spent the next 10 years figuring out that his teacher was right, although – initially – the idea of becoming a professional archer never crossed his mind. 44

“I never really thought about being a top level archer, but in 2013, when I made the Korean national team for the first time ever, for the Asian Archery Championships, I knew there was something else for me to do in the sport. I liked that experience and I decided that I wanted to stay on the team,” he said. At those Championships in Taipei City, Ku finished fourth individually, and collected one gold and one silver in the men’s team and mixed team competitions, respectively. Two years later, in 2015, he took his first individual gold medal on the Hyundai Archery World Cup circuit – at the stage in Shanghai. As part of a strong Korean men’s team, the achievements flowed. Ku became World Archery Champion in Copenhagen with the squad and, since he made the team, the Korean men never failed to podium at any international event. (Dating back to 2014.) “I studied physical education at university, so it helps me a lot in terms of my preparation. I’m

aware of all the effort and dedication needed in training to become a good archer,” he said. For Ku, who said he believes that nothing comes easily in archery, the most important –  and challenging – aspect to the sport is mental preparation. “It’s more about the mental strength than your physical condition. You win with good technique and shooting the 10, but mostly with a strong mind that pushes you to win,” he said. Riding that mentality, Ku arrived in Rio with an objective: winning men’s team gold – which he, Kim Woojin and Lee Seungyun did in style. Individually, any medal was a plus. As the elimination matches advanced, Kim and Lee fell out of the event – and Ku was the only Korean man that made it to the latter stages. He survived a pair of shoot-offs in the quarterand semifinals, and then beat Frenchman JC Valladont to Olympic gold. Of his Olympic matches, Ku described the clash with the USA’s Brady Ellison as the most difficult.

“Early this year, I lost against Brady in a shootoff, which was the same situation we had in the semifinal. I was nervous because I knew he had beaten me before, but this time, he didn’t. This time, I won,” he said. Ku took that tiebreaker with a nine against Brady’s eight. He celebrated – and one match later, became the first Korean man to win two gold medals at the same Games. (Oh won individual gold in London, but the Korean men’s team finished third.) “If I look back, there’s no doubt that winning two golds in Rio, becoming a two-time Olympic Champion, is probably the best thing I have ever done in my archery career. It’s the pay-off for all the hard work I have done in the past few years,” he said. “Rio 2016 will definitely be one unforgettable experience for me and for the entire team.” “This is the first time Korea wins four medals at the Olympics. We made history and that will remain forever.” •

hang Hye Jin became the eighth Korean athlete to win an Olympic gold in the women’s individual competition at the Games on 11 August in the Sambodromo, the iconic samba stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Born and raised in Daegu, a city in the southeast of South Korea, Hye Jin started archery when she was only 11 years old. Back then, though, her interests in the sport were more orientated to the enjoyment with her school friends than anything else. Being a professional athlete was something that, Hye Jin said, was out of her mind. The reason: her size. “When I started archery I didn’t even know what the sport was. I wasn’t even good enough because I was too short and not strong,” said Hye Jin. “I’m still short but now I’m stronger.” When she began her university studies in Seoul, her home nation’s capital, Hye Jin started to go deeper into the sport and attend competitions at a medium level. It was in her fourth year of university when she realised that she wanted to be part of the Korean national team. 48

“I gave and dedicated all my life to archery. There was not much time to go out, enjoy or relax. It was all about training to become a good archer,” she said. The oldest of four sisters and captain of the Korean women’s team in Rio quickly built up her confidence. She was soon part of the Korean squad that competed in Belgrade, Serbia, at the Summer Universiade in 2009 – where Hye Jin won her first international gold medal in the women’s team event. During 2010 and 2011, Hye Jin lived through disappointments as an athlete. She failed to make the national team. “Out of eight pre-selected women for the team, I was ninth. It was hard for me. That’s when I decided I wanted to be at the highest level, not out of it,” she said. Hye Jin was back in a Korean shirt at the start of 2012, competing at both the Shanghai and Antalya Archery World Cup stages. She failed, though, to make the most important team of the year: the one competing at London 2012.

THE TARGET


“I was fourth, I was the alternate. I didn’t do well enough to be on that team – that was hard,” recalled Hye Jin. “People that know me, know that I have had difficult times through my entire career; 2012 was one of those tough years. But then, that’s how they also know all the effort that I had put in to the past four years to be here in Rio celebrating that I’m an Olympic Champion.” At Rio 2016, Hye Jin beat Lusi Tatafu and Lidiia Sichenikova to start her Olympic journey, then shot against Kang Un Ju, from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, in the third round. That match, she said, was the hardest of her competition in Rio. “It gathered a lot of attention in our country. I had a lot of pressure and I knew that I needed to win it. So I did. Then, it was also hard to shoot against one of my best friends and favourite teammate Ki Bo Bae.” Chang’s match with defending Olympic Champion Ki came in the semis, after a quarterfinal win over Great Britain’s Naomi Folkard.

Hye Jin prevented her teammate from becoming the first archer to successfully defend an Olympic title when she relegated her to the bronze medal match, which Ki subsequently won. Chang, meanwhile, went on to take the Rio 2016 Olympic crown herself, with a 6-2 set point win over Lisa Unruh of Germany. Celebrating in front of the loud Sambodromo crown, only the second individual world win of Chang Hye Jin’s career was the biggest win in international archery. “This is the proof of many years of effort. Archery means many things for me, but especially, that’s the reason why I built up my confidence and strength – to be here in Rio celebrating my biggest achievement ever, an Olympic gold medal,” the former Olympic-alternate said. “I want to keep doing archery, keep training and prepare for the national team selection tournament at the end of the year because I want to stay on the team again.” “It’s not over yet for me.” •

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 10-17 September Using the same venue as the Olympic Games, the 2016 Paralympics also featured one of the same athletes. Iranian superstar Zahra Nemati (pictured left) – who became the first from her nation to win a Games event when she collected gold in London – secured a second Paralympic title in the recurve women’s open competition in Rio, just weeks after making her Olympic debut. For the first time, the Rio Paralympics included mixed team competitions, rather than team – and Great Britain dominated the newlyintroduced W1 competition class, taking gold in the men’s individual, women’s individual and W1 mixed team events. David Drahoninsky finished with a silver medal, but took his moment in the Sambodromo spotlight to propose to his girlfriend, who was watching from the spectator stands. THE TARGET

THE TARGET

63


The mixed team competition was introduced for the Rio 2016 Paralympics, replacing the previous team competitions. It paired two archers of opposite gender shooting the same category together – recurve open, compound open or W1 – and gave the opportunity for more nations to compete for medals at the Games. 64

The World Archery Excellence Centre is a state-of-the-art archery facility in the Olympic Capital in Lausanne. Construction started on the building in 2014 and was completed in mid-2016. It officially opened in December 2016, and full operation commences in the start of the new year.

Designed as a hub for the development and education of athletes, coaches, technical officials, the World Archery Excellence Centre is key to World Archery’s vision of a world in which everyone can make the important Olympic sport of archery their activity of choice. The World Archery Excellence Centre was made possible thanks to the support of FIDTA (the international foundation for the development of archery), the World Archery President, and sponsors and partners including Easton Foundations, SporToto, the Canton of Vaud, the City of Lausanne and the foundation for Sport in Vaud.

STAGE 1 Shanghai, China 26 April – 1 May The 2016 Hyundai Archery World Cup began as it traditionally does, with the first stage of the year in Asia’s financial capital, Shanghai. With a new finals venue in the heart of Pudong, under some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers, athletes shot for the first points of the threestage season over a beautiful lake. Mike Schloesser shot a world record on the 50-metre 72-arrow ranking round of 717 and converted that into victory. Two-time circuit champion from Colombia, Sara Lopez, continued her winning streak in the compound women’s competition. Sjef van den Berg beat Zach Garrett to the recurve men’s top spot, while Korean junior Ju Hyebin won recurve women’s gold. THE TARGET

91


Sara Lopez started the 2016 Hyundai Archery World Cup season off as she finished the previous: with gold. The 15-arrow-match world record holder took her second title on the circuit at the end of 2015, and beat Sarah Sonnichsen, in the match above, to the win in Shanghai at the beginning of the new season just months later. 92

THE TARGET


The Pudong region of Shanghai has hosted the opening stage of the Hyundai Archery World Cup circuit each year since 2012. For three years prior to that, Shanghai was the final stage of the World Cup, and 2016 marked the ninth year in which the Chinese city has held a leg. THE TARGET

93


94

THE TARGET


Due to Olympic selections, Korea sent a junior recurve team to Shanghai, pictured far left. Despite the lack of experience, the athletes still walked away with gold in the recurve men’s team event – and two of the three podium places in the recurve women’s competition. Ju Hyebhin finished top. THE TARGET

95


96

THE TARGET


Sjef van den Berg, a 20-year-old athlete from the Netherlands, collected his first international win in front of the imposing finals skyline at Shanghai 2016. He beat Zach Garrett in the final.

THE TARGET


The Chinese Taipei recurve women’s team, pictured top left, took gold – but still searching for a Rio berth at the time, Le Chien-Ying said that while happy to win the trio was “not really focused on anything else” but qualification for the Games. Demir Elmaagacli, reigning Hyundai Archery World Cup Champion, finished second – while Great Britain’s men’s team (above) made the finals, but couldn’t overcome India for bronze. THE TARGET

99


Two incredible world records fell during qualification at Shanghai 2016. Mike Schloesser scored 717 out of a possible 720 to beat the individual compound men’s ranking record, and the USA men’s team’s 2032 was also a world-best mark.

STAGE 2 Medellin, Colombia 9-15 May The second stage of the 2016 Hyundai Archery World Cup circuit also held the Americas continental qualification for the Olympic Games. In the main competition, Brady Ellison – his Rio place secure, and preparing to perform at his third Games – made his return to the podium at a leg of the international circuit, after not winning an individual medal at a stop since 2012. Korea’s Choi Misun, the reigning Hyundai Archery World Cup Champion, won individual gold, team gold and mixed team gold in Medellin. Sara Lopez won yet another compound women’s event, this one on home soil in Colombia, and Italy’s Sergio Pagni took honours in the compound men’s competition. Medellin 2016 was the last in a four-year cycle of Hyundai Archery World Cup events in the Latin American city. THE TARGET

103


104

THE TARGET


The finals of the 2016 Hyundai Archery World Cup stage in Medellin were held in front of the city’s museum of modern art. Shooting left, on the purple field of play, is Brazilian Marcus D’Almeida, who finished fourth in the recurve mixed team competition with partner Ane Marcelle Dos Santos.

THE TARGET

105


With expectations high for an eighth straight Olympic title in the recurve women’s team competition, the Korean trio to travel to Rio were revealed as a squad for the first time in Medellin. Choi Misun, Ki Bo Bae and Chang Hye Jin took their first gold as the Olympic squad at the stage, with Choi (pictured twice on the right) collecting two more wins in the mixed team and individual events at the Colombian stop on the tour. 106

THE TARGET


THE TARGET

107


Before Medellin, Sara Lopez’ last international match loss came at the World Archery Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2015. That loss was to Crystal Gauvin. The pair met again at Medellin 2016 – in the gold medal final. The match went to a shootoff and both shot a 10, but it was Lopez whose arrow was closer to the middle.

The Americas Olympic qualifier, which was held just prior to the Hyundai Archery World Cup stage, saw the Mexican men take places one, two and three.

THE TARGET

111


Over the four years in which Medellin has hosted a stage of the Hyundai Archery World Cup, Colombia emerged as a force on the world archery stage – especially in the compound women’s competition. Led by two-time Hyundai Archery World Cup Champion Sara Lopez, above collecting her Longines Prize for Precision award, the lasting legacy of the stage in Medellin will be felt in international archery for some time! 112

THE TARGET


STAGE 3 Antalya, Turkey 12-19 June The largest Hyundai Archery World Cup stage in history, Antalya 2016 attracted over 540 competitors to the beautiful Turkish coast of the Mediterranean – and the final qualification tournament, both team and individual, for the Olympic Games in Rio. The Korean teams showed signs of what was to come, taking all the available recurve gold medals – and Choi Misun doubled up on her incredible feat in Medellin, winning three golds (individual, team and mixed team) at the same stage for the second stage in a row. Sara Lopez won the compound women’s event, again, making it three for three on the season – while the Turkish home team took its first guaranteed leg win when it put Evren Cagiran and Samet Can Yakali into the compound men’s final. Cagiran won. THE TARGET

Sara Lopez completed a clean sweep of stage gold medals in 2016 in Antalya. She became only the second person in history to achieve the feat. The first was top USA compound archer Reo Wilde in 2012. Choi Misun also won her second stage of the year. Three of the favourite recurve women’s teams for the Rio Olympics – Korea, India (Deepika Kumari pictured near left) and Chinese Taipei – finished on the recurve women’s podium. THE TARGET

119


120

THE TARGET


While some teams, like Korea, left, used Antalya as the last preparation for athletes ahead of the Games, others were fighting for Olympic invitations in the last world qualifier. Three women’s teams – Italy, Ukraine and Chinese Taipei took spots, pictured above – as did three men’s – France, Indonesia and Malaysia, below – then remaining individual spaces were assigned to nations. Estonia’s women (Siret Luik pictured below far left) came so close to an Olympic berth, finishing fourth in the women’s qualifier and just missing out despite knocking out favourites Germany in their first match.

THE TARGET

121


Antalya host nation Turkey had never won a Hyundai Archery World Cup stage gold medal before Antalya 2016. And it was already guaranteed before the final. Evren Cagiran, top left, and Samet Can Yakali, top right, won their respective semifinals and met for gold. Cagiran took it, 145-139, and Domagoj Buden completed a trio of young, first-time podium finishers at the stage.

FINAL Odense, Denmark 24-25 September The home of author Hans Christian Andersen, Odense gave an opportunity for the world’s best archers to write their very own fairytales at the close of the 2016 outdoor season. Choi Misun arrived unbeaten on the year after the two Hyundai Archery World Cup stages she attended – and if not for Korean teammate and London 2012 Olympic Champion Ki Bo Bae, might have maintained her clean sweep on circuit golds. It was Ki that took the final in Odense between the pair, 7-1. Brady Ellison won an unparalleled fourth Hyundai Archery World Cup Final – two more than anyone else in history – in a shoot-off. Mike Schloesser and Marcella Tonioli won the compound competitions. Sara Lopez was unfortunately unable to compete, after not losing a match throughout the entire year. THE TARGET

127


King’s Palace in Odense, the Danish hometown of fairytale author Hans Christian Andersen, was the backdrop for the 2016 Hyundai Archery World Cup Final.


Each host nation of the Hyundai Archery World Cup Final is given the chance to enter a single athlete in each division – and shoot against the top-ranked mixed team of the circuit year. Dane Sarah Sonnichsen, who qualified for the final in her own right, took advantage of the home crowd, finishing second in the compound women’s competition. Also competing for Denmark at Odense 2016 were reigning World Archery Champion Stephan Hansen (middle near right), 2013 World Archery Champion Maja Jager and Johan Weiss (middle far right), Erika Anear, Tanja Jensen and Martin Damsbo.

Prize for Precision Longines introduced the Prize for Precision in 2010 to celebrate the most accurate archers across the entire year. Those with the highest number of 10s through ranking round and elimination matches, accumulated at all stages and the Final of the Hyundai Archery World Cup, are awarded the prize. Recurve archers are eligible for the award in even years and compound archers in odd years.

“I really like the Longines Prize for Precision for a couple of reasons. One, I’m the only person that wins it, so I really like that; that I’ve been that fortunate,” said Ellison. “I do like that it’s a good showing for consistency over the whole season. You may not be winning tournaments but you are shooting well enough to be in the top.”

In 2016, Brady Ellison won the recurve men’s Longines Prize for Precision for an impeccable fourth time.

Ellison had a total of 216 10s through the 2016 circuit, 40 ahead of Chinese Taipei’s Wei ChunHeng; third was Olympic Champion Ku Bonchan with 174.

He collected the accolade in 2010, 2012, 2014 and, after the Hyundai Archery World Cup Final in Odense, in 2016 – each time it’s been available for the recurve divisions.

Tan Ya-Ting won her first Longines Prize for Precision in the recurve women’s competition. She had 196 10s, ahead of Korea’s Choi Misun on 149 and Ki Bo Bae on 107.

Ankara, Turkey 1-6 March Junior and senior compound and recurve athletes competed at the 2016 World Archery Indoor Championships in the Turkish capital. Lisa Unruh, who would go on to win Olympic silver later in the year, started her season with gold over 18 metres. Heorhiy Ivanytskyy beat Ukrainian teammate Sergii Makarevych in the recurve men’s final, while Sebastien Peineau, of France, and Italy’s Irene Franchini took the compound world indoor titles. Germany and Japan were the surprise winners of the recurve men’s team and recurve women’s team competitions. Junior compound archer Viktor Orosz took a second-straight championship indoors. The event was held in the state-of-the-art Congresium conference hall and meeting centre in the heart of Ankara. THE TARGET

Dublin, Ireland 27 September – 2 October The picturesque hills of Wicklow County, to the south of the Irish capital of Dublin, hosted the 2016 World Archery Field Championships – which featured medals being awarded in individual and team competitions, for junior and senior archers shooting recurve, compound and barebow styles. The courses, 24, 12, eight or four series of targets, of varying sizes and distances, were set through changeable terrain, which included a paintball site – and the background of the charming Killruddery House. Champions included Brady Ellison, Amy Oliver, Steve Anderson, Irene Franchini, Erik Jonsson and Chantal Porte. The event reached 8.3 million people on Facebook, through the use of live streaming, a record for the World Archery Field Championships. THE TARGET

Field archery challenges archers with more than just hitting the middle of the target. With changing conditions, slopes, lighting, distances and – incredibly picturesque – backdrops, it’s an incredible opportunity to capture images of archery in nature. No mere walk in the woods, these World Archery Field Championships were the most competitive yet. Brady Ellison, far left, successfully defended his recurve men’s crown, while Stephan Hansen – the reigning target World Archery Field Champion – came within points of adding a field gold to his haul, but ultimately finished second.

Las Vegas, USA 29-31 January The 2015-16 Indoor Archery World Cup season came to a close in Las Vegas, USA, after open entry competitions in Marrakesh, Morocco, a stage in Asia in Bangkok, Thailand and the penultimate leg in Nimes, France – which, as a tour, posted record participation numbers. Long-time pro Jesse Broadwater, pictured left, took gold at the final in the compound men’s competition. States compatriot Brady Ellison won the recurve men’s competition and Khatuna Lorig – also USA – topped the podium in the recurve women’s event. The compound women’s winner bucked the trend, with Sarah Sonnichsen of Denmark taking the win in that category. The Vegas Shoot itself recorded over 3,000 competitors for the first time in its history. THE TARGET
