Korea’s National Archery Team Adopts New Training Method

For the past 20 years Korea has been seen as one of the top competitors in the sport of archery. And to keep this title the Korean national archery team is taking its training methods to a whole new level
The athletes are using simulation training to stay in tip-top shape for the upcoming 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. This approach allows for athletes to re-enact real situations similar to the ones they will be facing in a few months time with a manufactured audience and recorded crowd sounds.
At the Korea National Training Center in Taeneung, Seoul, the only national training village for athletes in Korea, archers say the simulation training method is proving to be quite beneficial.
Although the Chinese athletes have a homeground advantage, with this innovative training method Korean archers say they are confident that Korea will be able to maintain its top position in the field.
