Amnokgang Defence Sports Team
Archers from Amnokgang Defence Sports Team in the DPRK are making intensive training to bring honour to the country by winning gold medals in competitions.
The sports team has produced many ace archers including Choe Ok Sil and Son Hye Yong, who got good results in domestic and international competitions. Based on the success, the team is putting main emphasis on upgrading the technical skills of the archers.
All the archers, keeping in their mind that they can get full marks in the matches only when they increase the rate of hits through sustained training, are engaged in shooting more than 400 arrows every day. They are also striving to acquire scientific orders and methods necessary for hits.
Mock competitions are organized in a regular way in whatever the difficult conditions, thereby fostering the courage and rivalry of the players.
The team directs considerable efforts into finding new methods of increasing the rate of hits and applying them. It holds technical discussions twice a week, which inform the players in good time of the developing trend in archery and make them exchange experiences in games and training to analyze and appreciate each other’s skills.
Intensive training of the archers paid off greatly at the Pochonbo Torch Prize Games this year.
Choe Ok Sil demonstrated her rich experience and high ability as a veteran archer with good records in international games. Kim Hyong Guk and Jo Hyang Hui showed off their fortes in the games, attracting many spectators and experts.
The more we sweat much in training, the more gold medals we win in competitions— this is the motto of the players of the Amnokgang Defence Sports Team, who are devoting themselves to training.
