“It’s fantastic to beat China as they won in Shanghai,” said Lisa UNRUH. “We shot badly at the beginning of the match, but improved towards the middle and finished strong!”

“China was shooting some bad points and we thought: it’s our chance.”

Germany proceeded to drill five arrows into the 10, with only one lingering out in the nine, in a single set.

It gave the trio a valuable two-set point lead heading into the fourth and final regulation six arrows. They drew with China in the last set – and that was all Germany needed.

The gold ends a three year podium drought for Germany’s recurve women’s team, who love shooting together, according to Karina WINTER: “We have been friends forever! We know each other well – and that really helps our confidence as a team.”

Germany won a shoot-off over Mexico to make the final. Korea beat Mexico to bronze in the first match of recurve finals day at Medellin 2014 this morning.
