Summary

The 2003 World Champion was Korean [Yun Mi-Jun], also the defending gold medalist. She was in Athens and placed third in the ranking round behind her countrywomen Park Seong-Hyeon, the 2001 World Champion who led the rankings with a world record of 682, and Lee Seong-Jin. By 2004 Korean female archers won virtually every tournament they entered. They had won the Olympic team gold medal from 1988-2000 and the individual gold medals at every Olympics since 1984. The only surprise in Athens was when Yun lost in the quarter-finals and did not make the semis, preventing a Korean medal sweep as they had done in 2000.

The final came down to Park against Lee, with Park winning the gold medal 110-108. Park’s semi-final victory came over surprising British archer Alison Williamson, who was competing in her fourth Olympics. Williamson had never won a medal but had always placed in the top 10 in the individual Olympic event. In Athens she came through for the bronze medal by defeating Yuan Shu-Chi of Chinese Taipei.
