Lim and Li Still Wrestling, but Korean Improves to Top Qualifying Position

In the second stage of the Hyundai Archery World Cup, Li Jiaman and Lim Sihyeon faced off once again. This time, Sihyeon’s Korean team managed to defeat Jiaman’s Chinese team in their previous encounter. However, Sihyeon was determined to seek revenge and did just that by winning the individual semifinals and eventually taking home the third circuit stage of her career in just four appearances.

Throughout the day, Sihyeon and Jiaman traded positions at the top of the recurve women’s qualification leaderboard. Sihyeon, who is currently ranked world number two, ultimately secured the top spot with a final score of 685 points after a competitive round. Despite facing challenging wind conditions in the beginning, Sihyeon’s familiarity with the Yecheon environment helped her succeed.

Meanwhile, Jiaman finished third with a score of 678, behind Sihyeon’s teammate Jeon Hunyoung (680) and ahead of Shanghai runner-up Deepika Kumari (677), who achieved her best qualifying score since 2016. Kumari expressed her need for more confidence in her technique to improve her team’s performance.

As India’s recurve women’s team seeded sixth and Korea’s team secured the top spot, the competition between Lim and Li continued to intensify. The upcoming matches in Yecheon promise to showcase their rivalry once again, adding excitement to the event.

The competition will proceed with recurve team eliminations in the morning, followed by individual matchplay in the afternoon on Thursday. The ongoing battles between top archers like Sihyeon, Jiaman, and Kumari ensure an exciting and thrilling tournament for both competitors and spectators alike.
