Gold: KOR Chang Hye-Jin

Bronze: KOR Ki Bo-Bae


The Korean trio, victorious in the team competition, also led the field after the ranking round in the individual event. [Chang Hye-Jin] eventually proved to be unbeatable in the elimination rounds, with her teammates [Ki Bo-Bae] and [Choi Mi-Sun] finishing in third and eighth place, respectively. The surprise silver medalist in a keenly contested final was Germany’s [Lisa Unruh] who was in 21st place after the ranking round, but went on to win her country’s first individual medal in archery. [Alejandra Valencia] of Mexico beat the world number one Choi in the semifinal quarter-final surprisingly in straight sets, 6-0, thus preventing any chance the Koreans had of a clean sweep of medals. Although Valencia finished the ranking round 13 places ahead of Unruh, the German won their semi-final match by three sets to one. The 2012 gold medalist Ki had to settle for bronze after being defeated by Choi in an all-Korean semi-final. One of the most experienced female archers retired after her fourth Olympic appearance in Rio. Briton [Naomi Folkard] finished her career after losing to the eventual winner Chang in the quarter-final, and after three placings between 11 and 17 it was her first top-8 finish.
