Rising star Lim Si-hyeon has become a next-generation ace of South Korean women’s archery.

Lim beat Angela Ruiz from Mexico 6-5 in a shoot-off for the women's individual archery final at the 2023 Archery World Cup Stage 3, which finished off in Medellin, Colombia on Monday, and won a gold medal. She also won the individual event in Stage 2 held in Shanghai, China in May. The Archery World Cup Stage 2 was when she made a debut.

Lim also won the women’s team event along with An San and Kang Chae-young, earning two gold medals herself. She also won two golds at Stage 2. The rising star finished the World Cup with two golds and one silver by adding a silver medal for the mixed-gender team event along with Kim Woo-jin.

The South Korean national archery team, including Lim, will compete at the World Archery Championships to be held in Berlin, Germany from July 31 with a goal to win medals in all five events for the second time in a row.
