Thirteen Australian Archers are off to Korea to represent the country at World Cup 2 in Gwangju. Official practice for the event will start on Tuesday 15 May.

Both teams have had successful training camps leading into the tournament. Our compound team under the guidance of National Compound Coach, Dr Jim Park, headed to Victor Harbor (South Australia) for a few days of intensive shooting to work on matchplay, competition pressure and fine tuning equipment & technique.
Our recurve team was lucky enough to enjoy a training camp in Korea ahead of the World Cup. Shooting at the Kwangju Women’s University Archery Centre in Gwangju, the team was put through their paces under the watchful guidance of National Recurve Coach, Oh Kyo-moon.
Archers will shoot a 72arrow qualification round in order to than rank the athletes and teams based on score from first place to last.
From here archers will go head-to-head in matchplay where the winner will progress, and the loser of the match will be eliminated. This process will continue until medals are awarded.
