So Do-yeon, history written for the South Korean archers yet again

Dami, you are right on target.
It was an action-packed weekend especially as South Korea's archery team kept its reputation by adding another gold to the collection.
On Sunday, the women's team won its 9th consecutive gold medal that's every possible gold since the event was added in 1988.
An San, Jang Min-hee and Kang Chae-young cruised through the finals against Russian Olympics Committee.
An had actually already won a gold the day before when she paired with Kim Je-deok to grab South Korea's first gold of the Olympics in the mixed team event.
This was her first Olympics and as a winner in the newly-added event she stamps her name in the Olympics history books.
She still has the singles event left and could come away with three golds in total.
