Kim Woojin and Sara Lopez will return to defend their titles at the Archery World Cup Final, starting in Moscow tomorrow.

The season-ending event always attracts a star-studded line-up, as only archers who have won a regular World Cup stage or accrued enough ranking points are invited, alongside entrants from hosts Russia.

Four individual competitions will be held at Luzhniki Stadium – in men's and women's recurve and compound.

Each draw only features eight competitors and there is no ranking round, so all of the archers go straight into the quarter-finals.

Kim, a team gold medallist at the Rio 2016 Olympics, will aim for a third World Cup Final title in a row in the men's recurve and a fourth crown in all.

The 27-year-old has not won a stage on this season's circuit, however, finishing second in Shanghai and third in Medellín.

He will face fierce competition from the likes of American Brady Ellison, the reigning world champion hoping for a fifth win at the World Cup Final.

Ellison won the World Cup events in Medellín and Antalya this term and starts as number one seed.

Turkey's Mete Gazoz starts as second seed after winning the World Cup leg in Berlin.

In the women's recurve, South Korea's defending champion Lee Eun Gyeong is not competing.

Chinese Taipei's Tan Ya-ting starts as top seed after three bronze medals on the circuit, while South Korea's second seed Kang Chae Young claimed victories in both Medellín and Shanghai.

China's Zheng Yichai also competes after winning in Berlin.

Colombia's Lopez is targeting a third-straight women's compound title and a fifth in all.

She won her home event in Medellín this season and starts as second seed.

American top seed Alexis Ruiz won in Berlin and never failed to podium at the World Cup this term.

Danelle Wentzel of South Africa and So Chaewon of South Korea, the Antalya and Shanghai winners, respectively, are also in contention.

Dutchman Mike Schloesser is the top seed in the men's compound and will bid to add to his 2016 title.

He was victorious in Medellín this season but faces competition from second-seeded American Braden Gellenthien, the Shanghai champion.

A second American archer in James Lutz, the reigning world champion and Antalya winner, will also be a threat alongside Turkey's Berlin victor Evren Çağıran.

The World Cup Final will be held over the next two days.
