Mr Park and Win&Win Archery European staff visit French Federation and National Institute of Sports

Win&Win Archery, long-time partner of the French Archery Federation (FFTA), are closely linked through a gold partnership and reinforce each other year after year.

With that in mind, Mr PARK, W&W CEO, along with the European staff of Win&Win Europe, have visited the new office of the French Archery Federation located in Paris suburb, Noisy le Grand. 

Mr Park has reaffirmed his commitment with the French Federation to help in the development of Archery in France. 

Win&Win Archery staff then visited the brand new archery range of the National Institute of Sports in Paris and could work close with the sponsored athletes there. 

"It was a very good day" said Mr Park. "I am delighted that the last step of my European trip ended in Paris with the staff from the FFTA and our sponsored athletes. Our shooters have great facilities handy and I am sure it will help them in their path to success. Win&Win Archery is proud to be involved with all these persons dedicated to the same passion, Archery."

2015 Archery GB Grand Final: Unbeatable Naomi!

The 2015 Archery GB Series has come to a thrilling conclusion this weekend at the Grand Final. 4 out of 6 Win&Win Archery prostaff shooter grabbed a medal in Nottingham, congratulations for such a big success!

Win&Win Archery prostaff shooter Naomi FOLKARD takes gold in the women recurve category, Amy OLIVER ranks third.

Naomi FOLKARD: “I shot good! I was quite nervous. Definitely more nervous than I was the other two matches. But I just made sure I kept pulling strong, and pushing strong. My timing in the first set was quite long, but they still went in the middle, so it was good enough! It’s my first National Series win since Leamington in 2010, so I’m really happy.”

Amy OLIVER: "“I was actually less nervous on the last match, because me and Nicky are good friends, so we were having quite a laugh on our way down to shoot. I just wanted to enjoy it. Glad I got the bronze - bit dissapointed that I didn’t get my hat-trick win, but you can’t win every year, can you?”

In the men's recurve category, Patrick HUSTON defeated prostaff archer Kieran SLATER for Gold and 2014 winner's Larry GODFREY had to settle for bronze. 

Larry GODFREY: “I was shooting nice and strong, but I think the fatigue just hit me on the last arrow, there was a bit of shaking. It’s been a bit of a journey this last month with the birth of my twins. As you can imagine, I’ve not been getting a great deal of sleep. But I’ve got the bronze match to go, and I’m going to try and get something out of that.

Apart from the regular contingency for Win&Win Archery shooters, the best 3 young shooters of the competition got rewarded with a full bow.

Win&Win Archery would like to send its warmest congratulations to Archery GB staff and volunteers for their great input and efforts throughout the weekend!

1st European Games: Maikel Alvarino Garcia brings individual gold medal home!

Win&Win Archery shooters achieved an impressive challenge in Baku for the first edition of the European Games.

In the men's individual category, Spanish prostaff archer Miguel Alvarino Garcia clinched gold in an amazing tour de force. As one of the youngest archer of the world's circuit, Miguel's 2015 season couldn't be much brighter since he dropped a 680+ out of 720 in Antalya 2 weeks before. 

"It was an impressive competitition due to the quality of the archers who participated there. I had a great shooting, enjoying each arrow as I found the strength to fight for a medal.
I started the rounds a bit nervous as well as suffering from the heat but I took it with enthusiasm and excitement, as a touchdown. I felt strong, fighting for every arrow as if it were the last one, telling myself that it's only a game after all, just enjoying my form and my shape.
Also, big thank to Win&Win Archery for giving me the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful equipment, my Wiawis Nano Max. And I hope to keep fighting up there for a long time!"
 

In the women's category, Miguel's teammate Alicia Marin won bronze. In the mixed team event, prostaff archer Mauro Nespoli won gold, leading him to his first gold medal since he joined Win&Win Archery prostaff back in january. Last but not least with Italia, Elena Tonetta made an impressive come back on worldwide scene with a gold medal in the women's team category. 

Win&Win Archery send their warmest congratulations to all of you! #borntowin

Prostaff Min Byeong Yeon takes Junior world crown!

The young man that beat Olympic Champion OH Jin Hyek with nine perfect arrows indoors made an impressive introduction to outdoor competition at the youth worlds.

The worlds’ first introduction to the shooting machine that is MIN Byeong Yeon was at the third Indoor Archery World Cup stage of the 2014/15 season. It was quite an introduction. In Nimes, he shot nine straight 10s to defeat reigning Olympic Champion OH Jin Hyek to gold. After the match, a bemused looking Jin Hyek raised MIN’s hand into the air as he presented him to the crowd. 

At the 2015 World Archery Youth Championships, and shooting for gold, Byeongyeon put on a similar show, despite not having the favour of the crowd. He was shooting against host-nation archer Collin KLIMITCHEK. Byeong Yeon opened with 9-10-10. Whatever the crowd’s preference was, it did not seem to faze him – and an early 2-0 lead settled whatever nerves the Korean might have been feeling.

“He shot one not good arrow and I took advantage,” said MIN, referring to Collin’s seven with the last arrow of the first set. “It remained a tight match.” The pair split the second after both scoring 29, then Byeong Yeon took the last two sets by a point each. “This is unbelievable,” said MIN after walking out of the arena. “I am a world champion for the first time in my life. But I cannot believe it just yet. It will come soon, I’m sure!” MIN beat top seed and teammate LEE Woo Seok (2nd photo) in the semifinals. 

Congratulations to all Win&Win archers who competed in Yankton (USA) for the World Archery Youth Championships! #borntowin

Antalya: Japanese women trio upsets Korea for Gold!

It's the first team gold medal for Japan’s recurve women - all shooting Win&Win Archery bows - in the circuit’s history! 

Japan opened up with a pair of 56-point sets to quickly go 4-0. Korea, reigning Olympic team champions, proceeded to do what they do best: Up their level when needed.  A beautiful 58 put the pressure on Japan – but Kaori KAWANAKA and crew were up to the challenge. 

Only putting one arrow out of the 10 in the first five arrows of the set and Saori NAGAMINE strode to the line with a chance to seal the match and leave Korea without a single set point with a 10 – or the match win with a nine. The Japanese team’s group was black in the gold – but her arrow landed out in the eight. 

KANG “The Destroyer” Chae Young – who won three gold medals at the first stage of the year in Shanghai – did not play like the rest of the Korean team. While Japan was on the clock, she wasn’t focused on her team, her target or focused on the opponent’s target. 

Down to a fourth set, and Japan needed just a draw over six arrows to take the match. It was a lower scoring series, with Saori taking the line needing just an eight to secure the victory. This time around, she shot a nine. Set, match and gold medal to Japan. “We were training harder and harder to beat them because they knocked us out in the semifinals in Shanghai,” said Japanese third Yuki HAYASHI. 

Mission accomplished – and the first team gold medal for Japan’s recurve women in the circuit’s history.

Win&Win Archery renews partnership with Archery GB

Long time partner of Archery GB, the governing body for Archery in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Win&Win Archery is glad to announce the renewal of their sponsorship agreement.

"It's a real satisfaction for both parts and we do really appreciate the hard work that Archery GB staff and members put to make their events a real success every year", said Mr PARK Kyung Rae, W&W CEO. 

This year, Win&Win Archery moved to a higher level "Gold+ sponsorship", meaning a wider support including Archery GB National series, outdoor plus indoor events. 

Mr Jon NOTT, Archery GB Events Manager : "Win&Win Archery have supported the Archery GB National Series since it started in 2009, without the support of key sponsors such as Win&Win, events like ours could not take place, that are vital to both the sport and the athletes that take part".

We are looking forward to meeting many archers this season in Great Britain and Northern Ireland! #borntowin 

Double victory for Win&Win Archery shooters in Shanghai

Win&Win Archery shooters KU Bonchan and KANG Chae Young open outdoor season with two gold medals at the first leg of the 2015 Archery World Cup in Shanghai (CHN). KU and KANG bring their first international and individual gold medals back home. It's another clean sweep on the shooting line for Team Win&Win Archery...

The recurve men’s gold medal match was an all-Korean affair, with KU Bonchan taking on the in-form KIM Woojin. KU, perhaps the most ferocious competitor of all the men in white, had an imperious start with three straight tens. 

In the second end he got caught by the wind and shot a most un-Korean six, while Kim came back with three tens of his own, levelling the match. They split the points in the fourth, but KU drilled two tens in in the last to take the prize. It was his first gold medal on the circuit. 

“The six was annoying: I hadn’t quite set my sight pin for the wind on the practice field, but I adjusted quickly.” As for Bonchan’s next mission: “I’m looking forward to Antalya – it was my favourite World Cup venue last year. And, of course, I’d like to be world champion. Who wouldn’t?” 

The two in-form Koreans, KANG Chae Young and CHOI Misun contested the recurve women’s gold medal match. After a low-scoring first set, both women shot consistently – with top seed KANG consistently edging ahead. The match finished 6-2 in her favour. It was Chae Young’s third gold medal of the day. She also collected the Longines Prize for Precision – Stage Award. 

“I can’t really believe it,” the grinning Korean admitted. “I was a little nervous in the team match, but much more relaxed against CHOI, of course. It was easier.” 

Despite her innocent smiles, Chae Young is both fearsomely good and unfazed by the big stage. She said she didn’t have a problem concentrating during the matches, with the loud crowd behind. “Actually, it’s easier than training.” 

Last but not least, congratulations to the team of Japan with their gold medal in the recurve men's team event : all 3 archers are shooting Win&Win Archery equipment!

Win&Win Archery announces its first sponsored archer in Brazil

In the lead-up to the 2016 Olympic Games, hopeful archer Bernardo OLIVEIRA joined Win&Win Archery prostaff. 
It's the first time that a brazilian archer signs a one-year sponsorship contract: Bernardo will give a wider visibility for Win products in his country and, by extension, over South America. This season, Bernardo has chosen the Inno AL1 riser along with Wiawis One limbs. We wish him all the best for the future!

When and how did you start archery?
I started archery 10 years ago, in March 2005. I was invited by a friend. It really caught my attention when he invited me because archery is not a popular sport in Brazil. My friend quit archery a few months later but the sport really amazed me, so I kept on going.

Como e quando você começou no tiro com arco?
Eu comecei 10 anos atrás, em Março de 2005. Eu fui convidado por um amigo para uma aula. Fiquei surpreso com o convite porque o tiro com arco não é um esporte popular no Brasil. Meu amigo desistiu do tiro com arco alguns meses depois mas o esporte me fascinou de tal maneira que eu continuei treinando.


Your best achievements as of today?
In 2010 I won 4 gold medals, 1 silver and 1 bronze at the South American Games, even though I was only 16. Just a couple of weeks ago I got the last spot Brazil needed for the 2015 Pan-American Games, which will be held in Toronto, Canada. Other than that, I am a two-time Brazilian national champion. I am looking foward for more this year!

Quais as suas principais conquistas até hoje?
Em 2010 eu ganhei 4 medalhas de ouro, 1 de prata e 1 de bronze nos Jogos Sul Americanos, mesmo tendo só 16 anos de idade na época. Há algumas semanas eu ganhei a última vaga que faltava para o Brasil para os Jogos Pan-Americanos de 2015, que serão em Toronto, Canadá. Além disso eu sou bi-campeão brasileiro. Estou esperançoso para mais esse ano!

We have recently passed the 500-day milestone for the 2016 Olympics: as a Brazilian, how do you feel about this event?
I am really excited! Every athlete dreams of competing at the Olympics but very few get the chance of fulfilling this dream in such a special way: at home. I know it will be a once in a lifetime experience so definitely I am going to train hard to be there. Rio is a beautiful city, with so much history and life, so the Olympics will definitely be held in a great venue.

Recentemente nós passamos da marca de 500 dias para as Olimpíadas de 2016: como brasileiro, como você se sente com relação à este evento?
Estou muito animado! Todo atleta sonha em participar das Olimpíadas mas poucos tem a oportunidade de realizar esse sonho de maneira especial: em casa. Eu sei que será uma experiência única na minha vida, então vou me esforçar muito para estar lá. O Rio é uma cidade bonita, com muita história e vida, então com certeza as Olimpíadas serão realizadas em um local maravilhoso.

How do you schedule your training sessions in the lead-up to the Olympic Games?
I am an engineering student but I've decided to stop my studies until the Games so that I can train and focus full-time. I am training six days a week and doing physical preparation. I've spent the two previous winters doing intensive training in Korea, and I learnt a lot from this experience. Also, me and other archers have been incorporated as Athletes of the Brazilian Air Force.

Como você planeja os seus treinos na preparação para os Jogos Olímpicos?
Eu sou aluno de engenharia mas optei por parar os meus estudos até os Jogos para poder treinar e me concentrar em tempo integral. Estou treinando seis dias por semana e fazendo preparação física. Eu passei os dois últimos finais de ano fazendo treinamento intensivo na Coreia, e essa experiência me ensinou muita coisa. Além disso, eu e outros arqueiros fomos incorporados como atletas à Força Aérea Brasileira.

What do you like in your Win&Win Archery equipment? 
Win&Win does make great quality equipment. I've shot with Win&Win limbs for years because they give me an incredible feeling. They're really fast and smooth at the same time, I feel like the limbs are as thin as the string! And my Inno AL1 is the perfect match for the limbs. The durability and reliability of the equipment are also great.

O que você gosta no seu equipamento Win&Win?
A W&W faz materiais de ótima qualidade. Eu atirei com lâminas da W&W durante anos porque elas me dão uma sensação incrível. Elas são muito rápidas e macias ao mesmo tempo, eu tenho a sensação de que as lâminas são tão finas quanto a corda! E o meu Inno AL1 é a combinação perfeita para as lâminas. A durabilidade e confiabilidade dos equipamentos também são ótimas.

What does "born to win" mean to you?
To me it means to give your best always. In every competition, in every training, at the archery field, at the gym... Each good training and each improvement are also "wins", and these lead to the wins at tournaments and championships. Winning doesn't just happen, we build our way to it.

O que "born to win" ('nascido para vencer' - em inglês) significa para você?
Para mim significa dar o seu melhor sempre. Em cada competição, em cada treino, no campo de tiro, na academia... Cada bom treino e cada melhora também são vitórias, e essas levam às vitórias em torneios e campeonatos. Vencer não simplesmente acontece, nós trilhamos o nosso caminho até lá.
