South Korea wins five gold, one silver, one bronze at 2022 Archery World Cup in Gwangju Updated: 2022-05-23 17:08:25 KST

Paul, what an incredible achievement from Son Heung-min.

Yes, and it was his end-of-season form which really propelled him to the Golden Boot.
Son scored nine in his last 10 games, including six in his final five to finish on 23 for the season.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Son said that he would "100 percent" trade winning the Golden Boot if it meant Spurs qualified for the Champions League.
Now, of course, he has both to cap off a wonderful season.
But in terms of how things played out on Sunday.
Son began the final day one goal behind Mohamed Salah of Liverpool… who was on the bench for Liverpool’s home match with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Salah picked up an injury in the FA Cup Final last weekend and so manager Jurgen Klopp was trying to keep Salah fresh for this Saturday's Champions League Final against Real Madrid.
With Spurs 3-nil up away to Norwich, Son scored a quickfire double in the second half.
The first on 70 minutes brought him level with Salah, his second five minutes later put him one clear.
But Salah came on as a sub with Liverpool needing a goal in their bid to win the Premier League title and eventually found the back of the net bundling the ball in from close range to see the Golden Boot shared.

It was a dramatic last day all around too.

Yes, it was - plenty of twists and turns over the course of the afternoon. Manchester City came back from two-nil down at home to Aston Villa to win 3-2 and seal the title.
At the start of the day, Manchester City were one point clear of Liverpool who needed to beat Wolves and hope that City slipped up against Villa.
But an early goal from Wolves threw a spanner in the works for Liverpool.
City also found themselves trailing, 2-0 down but both teams mounted comebacks.
The Reds came back to win 3-1 but dreams of the quadruple are over with City winning 3-2 thanks to goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Rodri in the last 15 minutes.
Elsewhere in the Premier League, it was down to Leeds United and Burnley to avoid relegation.
Leeds beat Brentford 2-1 which meant that Burnley are relegated after losing 2-1 at home to Newcastle United.
Over in Italy, the Serie A season also concluded on Sunday.
AC Milan picked up a 3-0 win over Sassuolo to win a first Scudetto in 11 years.
Rivals Inter Milan were second and just two points behind heading into the final day meaning AC Milan needed a result.
A brace from Olivier Giroud and one from Franck Kessie sealed the win.
The game might've been the last for Zlatan Ibrahimovic who could be about to hang up his boots following a 14th league title of his career.

Let's move onto archery now. South Korea picked up some gold medals at the Archery World Cup in Gwangju over the weekend. What can you tell us about that?

Korea won five gold, one silver and one bronze medal at the Gwangju 2022 Hyundai Archery World Cup over the weekend.
Two of the gold medals were from compound events, while the others were in recurve.
Kim Jong-ho, Yang Jae-won and Choi Yong-hee of the Korean men’s compound team were the ones to win bronze, beating Denmark 238-229.
The medals kept on coming too as Kim Yun-hee, Song Yun-soo, So Chae-won and Oh Yoo-hyun of the women’s compound team beat Estonia 232-228 to win gold.
Kim Yun-hee then went on to win her second gold medal, beating Andrea Munoz of Spain 141-137 in the individual gold medal event.
In recurve, Korea won both the men’s and women’s team gold medals.
Choi Mi-sun, An San and Lee Ga-hyun overcame Germany 5-1 in the final after beating Turkey 5-4 in the quarters and India 6-2 in the semis.
Choi Mi-sun went on to beat fellow South Korean Lee Ga-hyun to win the recurve women’s individual gold.
Lee Ga-hyun won silver.
And Kim Je-deok, Lee Woo-seok and Kim Woo-jin won the men’s recurve team gold, beating Italy 6-0.
Korea beat Kazakhstan 5-4 in the quarters and Spain 6-2 in the semis.
Kim Woo-jin went on to win the men’s recurve individual gold, beating fellow South Korean Lee Woo-seok 7-1 on Sunday.

To baseball, Ryu Hyun-jin is back from injury and back on form, it seems.

Yes, Ryu Hyun-jin pitched six scoreless innings on Friday local time.
This helped him pick up his first win of the 2022 season as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-1.
At Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ryu struck out three while allowing six hits but no runs in six innings.
Ryu got off to a tough start this season, walking away with no decisions in three starts while giving up a total of eleven runs.
But Friday's scoreless outing lowers Ryu's ERA from 9.00 to 6.00.
He also struck out three and didn't give up any walks.
Afterwards, Blue Jays manager said that Ryu is “back to himself.”
The Blue Jays won the following day too, 3-1, but then lost on Sunday in game three of the series, 3-2.
Elsewhere in MLB, fellow South Korean Kim Ha-seong on Saturday helped the San Diego Padres to a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants.
Kim earned one run from two hits after starting as the seventh batter and shortstop.
It was the fifth time this season that Kim has been able to earn “multi-hits" in matches or more than one hit in a match.
His batting average for the season went up from 0.214 to 0.222 from 26 hits in 17 at-bats.
Saturday’s win was the second of three for the Padres over the Giants in the series including a 10-1 win on Sunday local time.

Alright, thanks for that wrap-up Paul. See you next week.
Thank you.
