World champion Ksenia Perova beat South Korea's world number one Chang Hye-jin in a tight final of the women's recurve competition at the Archery World Cup in Antalya today.

The Russian triumphed in a repeat of the match-up and result from last year's World Championship final in Mexico City as South Korea dominated elsewhere on recurve finals day.

Perova trailed in the early stages before fighting back as both archers struggled in windy conditions at the Antalya Archery Field.

Nothing could break the two in the regulation match to leave the contest decided by a shoot-off.

Both shot a nine - with Perova judged the winner, 6-5 overall, after a measurement was taken.

“It was lucky, but sometimes you are lucky,” the winner said, after ensuring her automatic qualification for the Hyundai World Cup Final in Samsun later this year.

“This is sport, and anything can happen.”
