Brazil will compete in their first medal match at an Archery World Cup since 2014 after reaching the semi-finals of the mixed recurve in Medellin.

Despite losing 6-0 to top-ranked South Koreans Kim Woojin and Choi Misun in the last four, their run to that stage gives Ane Marcelle Dos Santos and Marcus D'Almeida the chance to win bronze.

They will meet Chinese Taipei's Tan Ya-Ting and Wei Chun-Heng in that clash, after they were beaten 5-3 by Japan's Kaori Kawanaka and Hideki Kikuchi, who move on to the final.

The Brazilians saw off opponents from hosts Colombia and Mexico to make it this far.

"In the first two matches we started a bit rough, but then we managed to control it,” said D’Almedia.

“But against Korea, we couldn’t control the wind."

The run in the competition provides a boost for Brazil's archers with their home Rio 2016 Olympics looming.

In singles action, the United States will have representation in three of the four finals.

Brady Ellison beat Ku Bonchan of South Korea 6-5 in the men's recurve last four, and will meet Spain's Miguel Alvarino Garcia, a 6-2 winner over Japan's Kikuchi.

The men's compound, meanwhile, will feature Reo Wilde who defeated Mike Schloesser of The Netherlands 148-147.

The American's opponent in the final is Sergio Pagni of Italy, who ousted Martin Damsbo of Denmark 148-144 in his semi-final.

Completing the trio of American finalists is Crystal Gauvin, a 147-146 winner over Danish archer Sarah Holst Sonnichsen in the women's compound last four.

She will square off with Colombia's hope hopeful Sara Lopez for gold, after her 146-142 win over Italian Marcella Tonioli.

There could be two golds for the home fans to celebrate, with Colombia also booking a gold medal match against Italy in the mixed compound.

The women's recurve final will feature China's Wu Jiaxin, who saw off Chinese Taipei's Tan 6-4 in the semis.

Her opponent will be South Korean Choi, who conquered Guendalina Sartori of Italy 6-0.

Team matches will be played tomorrow before finals are held on Saturday (May 14) and Sunday (May 15).
