Encuentro por medalla de oro

Aida Román obtiene medalla de plata trás haber perdido en un encuentro muy reñido con la coreana Ki Bo Bae.

Recurve Women’s Individual – Gold

History had already been made, Mexico ensuring two medals after the bronze of Mariana AVITIA in the previous match.

ROMAN missed a good chance in the first set when she needed a 9 to lead 2-0. She scored a 6 at her third arrow, losing the set 25-27 and trailed. The second set was a draw, since the two yound ladies shot 9-9-8 each. KI still led, 3-1 this time.

Thanks to three arrows in the gold ring, the Mexican clinched the third set with 29 points and tied the game 3-3.

Korea’s team gold medallist replied with a perfect 3-arrow series to secure the fourth set and the lead again 5-3.

ROMAN followed with a triple 9 in the final set. As KI also scored two 9s, she needed a 9 to tie the set at least and clinched the one set point missing. She let an… 8 go, and shoot-off!
