Four in a row for Korea! Guangzhou – 24 November 2010 KIM Woojin (KOR)    After another close match KIM Woojin (KOR) made it four victories in a row for his country at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China. In the men's individual gold final, the Korean beat Tarundeep RAI from India.   KIM clinched victory 7-3 over RAI who eliminated his teammate OH Jinhyek in quarterfinal. Two millimetres gave the Chinese Taipei archer SUNG Chia Chun the bronze medal against XING Yu from China.    At the end of the competition the medals were divided between Korea, China, India, DPR Korea and Chinese Taipei. Korea won all gold medals but failed to win a second medal in the individual competitions. India showed that after the very successful Commonwealth Games campaign they are with China the rising stars in archery.    The archery competition of the 2010 Asian Games ended with the AAF President, Mr CHUNG Eui Sun, presenting the gold medal to his fellow countryman KIM.   The Games will now go to Korea where it is expected for compound to make its first appearance. We will see many new nations show that they are competitive by that time.    World Archery Communication
