South Korea’s Choi Mi-sun equalled the women’s recurve world record to earn top seeding at the Archery World Cup in Antalya.

The 19-year-old, who earned bronze at the 2015 World Archery Championships in Copenhagen, was able to achieve a superb score of 686 during the qualifying round of the competition.

It proved enough to equal the record set by her team-mate Ki Bo Bae, last July.

Ki finished second during qualifying by scoring 682, while Russia’s Ksenia Perova completed the top three seeded archers by ending on 678.

Spain’s Alicia Marin topped the standings for the final qualifying tournament the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by achieving a score of 653.

“I shot okay, but I didn’t expect this,” said Marin.

“It’s awesome.

“We want to win a full team quota place and if it happens it would be great, if not, we are still young.

“The qualification is a good start, though.”
