Archers

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.
