Oh Jin-hyek wins gold in men's individual archery


LONDON - Oh Jin-hyek has won gold in the men's individual archery at the Olympics, claiming a third title out of four for the dominant South Korean team.

The third-seeded Oh beat Japan's Takaharu Furukawa 7-1 in the final archery match of the London Games for South Korea's fourth medal at Lord's cricket ground.
Dai Xiaoxiang of China took bronze with a 6-5 victory over Dutchman Rick van der Ven following a shoot-off. Dai hit a 10 in the shoot-off, piling the pressure on Van der Ven, who only managed an eight.

Favorite, top seed and new world record holder Im Dong-hyun of South Korea surprisingly was beaten by Van der Ven earlier Friday. Im set a 72-arrow world best in the Olympic ranking round last week but lost 7-1 to Van der Ven in the last 16.
