South Korea fared well in the women's and men's recurve quarter-finals at the Medellín Archery World Cup, ensuring half of the spots remaining in the competition belong to archers from the nation.

Three of these came in the women's recurve, with world number one and three-time Olympic gold medallist An San making easy work of Chinese Taipei's Chiu Yi-Ching, with the score 6-0.

Lee Ga-hyun, who made her international debut earlier this year, defeated another Taiwanese archer, Kuo Tzu-ying, 7-1. 

World number 12 Kang Chae-young won 6-2 against Britain's world number five Bryony Pitman.

It could have been an all-South Korean final four, had the German Katharina Bauer not defeated world number nine Choi Mi-sun 6-2.
