In a major achievement for Taiwan at the World Archery Championships, Taiwanese archer Lei Chien-ying has won an individual gold medal at the event. This is after she won her team recurve gold earlier. This gold medal was won at this year’s World Archery Championships in Netherlands.

Lei who is ranked at number 22 in the world but was seeded second in the draw after the second highest qualification score had pulled a dramatic comeback when she defeated the top seed of this tournament as well as the World No. 1 Kang Chae Young of South Korea to win the gold medal.

Also, it happened to be the first-ever gold medal which was won by a Taiwanese individual at a World Championship and that too at the individual recurve event.

IT should be noted that there are five sets and three arrows each which the archers have to throw in an individual competition and winner of the set gets two points whereas both get one point each if the set is tied. This is similar to the team recurve event as well. However, the first to get six points or win three sets wins the event.

Talking about the final, Lei made a dramatic comeback when she was trailing 5-3 after four sets and she was just one point away from a defeat. She won the fifth set which made the score 5-5 where she won the fifth set by 29-28 against her South Korean opponent. As the points were tied after the fifth set, there was a single-arrow tiebreaker to decide the winner.

Lei managed to score a nine in the single arrow to win the tiebreak as Kang was only able to score a seven which means that the Taiwanese Lei won the final and thus winning the gold medal at World Championship 2019.
