At the recently completed 19th Asian Archery Championships in Bangkok our athletes have not been able to win the license.
Islam Sayfulin, to whom all hopes were set on, placed only 17th with 618 points.
Munira Nuramanova and Irina Savinova with 593 and 572 points respectively, also remained without a license.
“We still have one more chance to win a license to the Olympics at the World Cup in Antalya, which will be held in May 2016,” commented Gulnara Aripova, head coach of the national team. “During the remaining time, we will try to hone the athletes’ skills, as we have to face stiff competition.”
