Archery World Cup 2007 starts in Ulsan

The 2nd edition of the Meteksan Archery World Cup starts in Ulsan (KOR) next week. More than 250 archers from 34 countries registered to the event and they have one goal in common: earn points and qualify to the World Cup Final at the end of the season!

From April 1-6, the competition in Ulsan (KOR) promises to be interesting. The participation in Recurve Men and Women is truly impressive as some archers kick on their preparation for the next Olympic Games. The best Compound archers also made the trip and there will be two categories: the ones looking to confirm an excellent 2006 season and the ones definitely looking for revenge.

Recurve Women
World Cup winner Zhang Juan Juan (CHN) starts to defend her title and one her tougher opponent is her young team-mate and raising star Qian Jialing. They take on a truly Korean dream team: Olympic and Asian Champion Park Sung Hyun, Yun Mi Jin, Yun Ok Hee and Lee Tuk Young. The experimented Williamson will try to lead a strong British team with Folkard and Burgess. The Italians count on Tonetta and a come-back from Valeeva.

Compound Women
The fabulous four will keep fighting: World Champion and World Cup Winner Goncharova (RUS), her team-mate Kazantzeva, as well as the Americans Van Natta and Davis.

However, many archers want to take them out of the podium: European Champion Soemod (DEN), recent Indoor World Champion Salvi (ITA), Simpson (GBR), Hansdah (IND) and Paz (PHI).

This year the Meteksan Archery World Cup features a complete FITA round during the qualifications (4x 36 arrows at four distances), and then the arches go into the exciting single elimination match play (12 arrows only).
