Estonia’s Lisell Jäätma overcame world number one Sara López on route to the semi-finals of the women’s compound event at the Archery World Cup in Gwangju.

Colombian star López had secured the top seeding at the competition in South Korea, but made a third-round exit.

Jäätma earned a 149-146 win over López to reach the quarter-finals, where she secured a 149-145 win over Turkey’s Yeşim Bostan.

"I am really happy, I felt very good today and just tried to shoot my best, arrow by arrow," Jäätma told World Archery.

"It was cool.

"It definitely made me more confident because the last season was not good for me."

Jäätma has now reached consecutive Archery World Cup semi-finals, after finishing as a bronze medallist in Antalya.

She will seek to improve on the result when she meets Spain’s Andrea Muñoz in the semi-finals.

Muñoz edged Denmark’s Tanja Gellenthien 145-144 in the quarter-finals.

Mexico’s Dafne Quintero overcame South Korea’s So Chae-won 146-143 to reach the last four, while the all-South Korean quarter-final saw Kim Yun-hee beat Song Yun-soo 146-141.

Men's top seed Mike Schloesser booked his place in the semi-finals, after the Dutchman came through a tiebreak against Chinese Taipei’s Chen Chieh-Lun with the contest ending level at 147-all.

He will now face the United States’ Steve Marsh, who beat Denmark’s Mathias Fulleron 149-147.

Austria’s Nico Wiener overcame Mexico’s Olvera Rodrigo 148-144 to reach the semi-finals, where he will face Mohan Ramswaroop Bhardwaj.

The Indian archer was a 147-140 winner against South Korea’s Yang Jae-won.

France were 231-230 winners against Denmark to advance to the final of the men’s compound team event.

India will provide the opposition in the final on Saturday (May 21), following a shoot-off win over South Korea after the teams ended level on 233.

South Korea bounced back from defeat by beating Denmark 238-229 in the bronze-medal match.
