The Iranian compound woman withdrew due to injury.

Chinese Taipei’s Chen Yi-Hsuan will replace Iranian compound woman Parisa Baratchi at the Rome 2017 Hyundai Archery World Cup Final. Baratchi notified World Archery that she would not be able to compete due to injury.

Eighth in the World Cup Rankings after stage four, Chen enters the tournament as the seventh seed, with Yesim Bostan (who was tied on points with Baratchi) locked in sixth.

Chen competed in the first three Hyundai Archery World Cup stages of the season, finishing eighth, ninth and eighth again, individually.

She climbed the podium in Antalya, at stage two, when she collected mixed team silver with partner Chen Hsiang-Hsuan, who – despite also winning men’s individual gold at that leg – did not qualify for Rome.

The 2017 Hyundai Archery World Cup Final takes place 2/3 September in Rome, Italy.
