Coach Liu Zhanming (劉展明) expressed pride and relief after the challenging period following their performance at the Asian Games in Hangzhou. Securing full quotas has boosted team morale and set a strong foundation for their Olympic preparations. Key players include Tang Chih-chun (湯智鈞), the only member from the Tokyo Olympics silver medal team, Dai Yu-hsuan (戴宇軒), with gold medals from the 2019 World Junior Championships and the Taipei Indoor Archery Championships, and Lin Tzu-hsiang (林子翔), who has shown strong performance under pressure despite less experience.

The team will return to Taiwan to prepare for the Olympics, conducting simulation matches to replicate the high-pressure environment of Olympic finals, aiming to refine their skills and strategies. Taiwan’s archery teams are now focused on building on their recent successes and striving for podium finishes at the Paris Olympics.
