South Korea triumph in Archery
South Korea triumphed in the Archery at Lord's
South Korea maintained their remarkable record in women's team archery, winning a seventh consecutive Olympic gold at Lord's.
They have triumphed at the competition at every Games since it was added to the schedule in Seoul in 1988 and extended that proud tradition in London.
Lee Sung-jin, Ki Bo Bae and Choi Hyeonju defeated Chinese trio Cheng Ming, Fang Yuting and Xu Jing 210-209 in wet and windy conditions reminiscent of those that blighted the gold medal match between the nations in Beijing four years ago.
It is third time in a row China have finished in the silver medal position behind the Koreans, though none of the archers involved four years ago are on duty in London.
The match was decided on the last arrow, when Ki needed at least nine to secure victory. She duly hit the outer gold to cue wild celebrations with her team-mates.
The bronze medal match was won by Japan, who defeated Russia 209-207 to claim the first women's archery medal in their history.
Ren Hayakawa, Miki Kanie and Kaori Kawanaka came all the way through the draw - having just missed out on a first-round bye - defeating world number threes Ukraine 207-192 and Mexico 219-209 in the quarter-final.
