Olympics 2012: Oh Jin-Hyek Wins Gold In Men's Archery, Jacob Wukie Falls In Round Of 16

On Friday, Oh Jin-Hyek won gold for Korea in the Men's Archery event by defeating Takaharu Furukawa of Japan by a score of 7-1 in the Final round.

Via The Washington Post:

"My dream was to compete at this Olympics. On top of that I have a gold medal, so I am very happy man," said the third-seeded Oh, who was at his first games. "If you talk about the secret to strong archery in Korea, I don't know. But many Koreans are very strong at perseverance and I am one of them."

While Jin-Hyek and Furukawa battled for gold, Xiaoxiang Dai managed to win the bronze by defeating Rick Van der Ven by a score of 6-5.

Jacob Wukie of Ohio represented the United States in the event, but was eliminated in the Round of 16 by Baard Nesteng of Norway, 6-2.
