“World No. 1 → No. 8” Ansan, “Olympic Queen” Dreaming of a Big Twist

Ansan (23), the winner of three gold medals in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, is dreaming of a big twist in 2024, putting aside the disappointing last year. The third stage will be held again to show off the majesty of the “Olympic Queen.”

In a recent written interview with Star News, Ansan said, “As 2024 is the year of the Olympics, my biggest goal is to work hard in winter training and finish the selection match with good results. I want to do well in the business team 헤라카지노.”

At the Tokyo Olympics three years ago, Ansan was noted as an archery star who inherited the tradition of the Korean New Palace. Women’s individual and team competitions, and mixed team competitions with Kim Je-deok (Yecheon County Office) all won gold medals, becoming the first Korean to win three gold medals in Olympic archery. She was also the first Korean to win three gold medals in the history of the Summer Olympics.

Since then, he has maintained his skills and maintained his No. 1 ranking from Sept. 27, 2021 to Jan. 22, 2016. However, 2023 was a year that Ansan still has regrets. He performed fairly well in the team event, but only garnered a bronze medal at the third World Cup event in the individual event, and a silver medal twice when he met with Lee Si-hyun (21) at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games and National Sports Festival finals in October. He failed to advance to the semifinals at the World Cup and World Championships. His world ranking dropped to eighth place as of January this year.

There was fruitful result in the team event. She won the team event for the second and third competitions in the archery world cup held early in the season, and also won the gold medal in the archery world cup final. She also acquired a gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games along with Lee and Choi. It was the seventh consecutive gold medal at the women’s team event since the 1998 Bangkok Asian Games. At the 2023 Bangkok Asian Championship, she beat China to win the women’s team event for the sixth consecutive time, earning a berth to participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Even the three-time Olympic champion cannot guarantee the national team’s national archery competition. Ansan focused on the national team’s selection match, which will take place in March this year, rather than the 2024 Paris Olympics, which will take place in July. It entered the Jincheon National Training Center on June 26, and started preparations for the upcoming season early.

“I didn’t have enough time to work out due to school schedule after the season ended, but I’m trying to focus on strengthening my physical strength as well as strength training,” Ansan said. “I want to run a competition suitable for the upcoming selection match.”
