The South Korean women's archery team won the team title at the 2023 Asian Archery Championships and qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The Korean team of Choi Im-hyun (Korea Gymnastics University), An An (Gwangju Women's University) and Choi Mi-sun (Gwangju Bank) defeated China 6-2 (56-53 60-55 53-55 57-55) in the women's team final on the final day of the tournament in Bangkok, Thailand, on Monday.

It was Korea's sixth consecutive women's team title at the tournament.

In addition, the country has now secured all six berths to the Paris Olympics - three for men and three for women.

After failing to qualify for the team event at the World Championships in Berlin in August, the women's team had only earned one Olympic berth through the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, but with this win, they have secured all three.

The men's team already had three tickets in hand after winning the team title in Berlin.

The men's compound archery team competes at the Hangzhou Asian Games.

Earlier in the day, South Korea won one gold, one silver and two bronze medals in compound archery.

The Korean team of Choi Yong-hee, Kim Jong-ho (formerly of Hyundai Steel) and Yang Jae-won (formerly of Commerce) won the men's team final, defeating Kazakhstan 234-232.

In the men's individual event, Kim Jong-ho narrowly lost to Andrei Chuchun (Kazakhstan) in the final, 144-146, to claim the silver medal.
