CHENG Ming won the recurve women’s World Cup Final 2011

The 25-year old Chinese archer CHENG Ming won the recurve women’s World Cup Final 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey. Since she started competing on the World Cup circuit in 2010, she has won eight medals (individual, team and mixed team altogether) in stages, including three gold, two silver and three bronze. The Chinese is ranked 7th in the world.
 
CHENG did not qualify in the Chinese team for this year’s World Championships that took place in July in Turin, Italy. But she overcame disappointment and won her first World Cup stage in individual in August in Ogden. It was her victory in the USA that assured her of a spot for the Istanbul Final where won the title.
In 2010, she won two gold medals, in team and mixed team, at Stage 2 in Antalya, Turkey. The same year, she was also individual and team silver medallist at the Asian Games.
In the first week of October 2011, CHENG shot in the Olympic Test Event in London, where she was 18th after the ranking round. Seeded No. 3 in the team event, CHENG and her teammates FANG Yuting and XU Jing defeated Poland in quarterfinals and the host country Great Britain in semifinals. The Chinese then lost the gold medal match to the favourite No. 1 team Korea and clinched silver in London.
In the individual event in London, the World Cup champion was happy to come out the winner in her first match against Sinead CUTHBERT (IRL), 6-4, despite shooting 24 points only in the fifth set. However, luck went over to the other side in 1/16 elimination, where CHENG was defeated by Ksenia PEROVA (RUS) after a shoot-off.
