Brady Ellison won the men's individual title at the Archery World Cup in Medellin as South Korea swept the rest of the golds on recurve finals day.

Ellison, who has not secured an individual podium on the circuit since he claimed the gold medal at the World Cup Final in Lausanne in 2014, shot superbly against Spain's European Games champion Miguel Alvarino Garcia.

The American shot three 10s to open and swept to the first set as his opponent frequently shot too high.

It was only in the third set, with Garcia already 4-0 down, that he began to recover, after Ellison could only manage an eight with his final arrow when a nine would have been enough to win it.

It proved a momentary blip, however, as he won the fourth set 28-26 to seal a 7-1 victory.

“It feels good to be back,” said Ellison.

“I have been qualifying very well all year.

“I’m really looking forward to the [Olympic] Games.

"I’m shooting the best I ever have, shooting scores that haven’t been shot in a long time, and it makes me excited."

South Korea's Ku Bonchan claimed the bronze medal by beating Japanese rival Hideki Kikuchi 7-3 at the Colombian venue.

Neither the Korean recurve men’s nor women’s teams surrendered a single set point in victories over Mexico and China respectively in gold medal matches.

Ku, Kim Woojin and Lee Seungyun were simply stronger in blustery conditions than Mexico, averaging 56 points a set, nearly eight more than their opponents, to take a 6-0 win.

Choi Misun, Ki Bo Bae and Chang Hye Jin overcame a sluggish start to prove similarly dominant in a 6-0 women's victory over arch-rivals China.

Spain and Mexico claimed male and female bronze medals.

Choi claimed three gold medals on a superb day of competition.

She dismantled China's Wu Jiaxin, dropping just five points across three sets for a 6-0 women's individual win, before teaming up with Kim Woojin to claim mixed team gold, 5-1 over Japan.
