The scary youngest Im Si-hyeon (20, Korea National University of Physical Education) appeared in Korean female archery.
Im Si-hyun took first place with a total of 16 points in the first and second rounds in the recurve women’s division of the 2023 national team final evaluation, which ended on the 21st at the Wonju Archery Field in Gangwon-do. She competes in the Hangzhou Asian Games until the top 4 and the World Championships in Berlin until 3rd.
She showed off her overwhelming skills in the first and second evaluation matches, receiving the highest points in both.
Im Si-hyun received the highest score of 8 points with a total average record of 114.24 points in the first round, and also scored 8 points in the second round with an average score of 113.42 points.
Her eminent Olympic gold medalist outsmarted all of her older sisters.
In particular, at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, she pushed Ansan (Gwangju Women’s University), who became the first Olympic archer to win three gold medals, to second place. Kang Chae-young (Hyundai Mobis) and Choi Mi-seon (Kwangju Bank) are also gold medalists at the Tokyo Olympics and the 2016 Rio Olympics, respectively.
Im Si-hyun’s passing of first place in her evaluation match is a scene that shows the characteristics of Korean archery, which boasts a solid and rich player base.
Sihyeon failed to finish in the top 8 in the Tokyo Olympics team evaluation match. Last year, she narrowly placed 5th in the national team evaluation match, and her participation in the Asian Games was frustrated. 메이저놀이터
However, as the Asian Games were postponed for a year due to the Corona 19 issue, the selection and evaluation matches were restarted from scratch, and Si-hyun did not miss her second chance.
Ever since she was a student at Seoul Physical Education High School, she was a cotyledon that would be ranked number one in high school.
Im Si-hyun said, “I increased the amount of training. Also, if something didn’t go well, I had a tendency to dig deep and shake myself, but I thought of simply shooting and brushing it off.”
He added, “I also systematically changed my body management. In the meantime, I didn’t do shoulder icing properly, but I managed it systematically. I found confidence while reading psychology-related books and training.”
Among the 8 male and female recurve players who will participate in the Hangzhou Asian Games, only 6 Olympic gold medalists are the ‘archery dream team’.
Im Si-hyeon proudly made his name among them.
She said, “Looking at her older sisters, I thought that they were cool and wanted to be like them.” She said, “It’s an honor to be selected.
