Kim Woo-jin, An San, Mike Schloesser, and Sara López are the defending World Cup champions from 2022 as the 2023 campaign nears.
The world's best archers are back and ready to take on the 2023 Archery World Cup season – with potential spots at the Olympic Games on the line.
This season's World Cup stages are an indirect Paris 2024 qualifier, providing points towards the Archery World Rankings which will be used to determine two Olympic Games team quotas for both men and women as of the 24 June 2024 rankings.
There will be four stages on the 2023 calendar, with stops in Türkiye, the People's Republic of China, Colombia, and France, before a season-ending World Cup Final in Mexico.
Notably, Stage 4 of the 2023 Archery World Cup in Paris, France, will be held over two different venues, with the qualifications and finals being held at separate sites. The finals will be held at Les Invalides in the heart of Paris as an official Olympic Games test event.
As usual, both recurve and compound events will be contested during the World Cup, although only recurve archers will earn Olympic qualification ranking points as the compound bow is not shot in Olympic competitions.
The Republic of Korea's Kim Woojin and An San are the defending men's and women's recurve World Cup champions, while Dutchman Mike Schloesser and Colombian Sara López were the compound World Cup winners last year.
Kim, a two-time Olympic team gold medallist, and the triple Olympic champion An will be figures to watch again this season as the Republic of Korea look to continue their domination of recurve archery.
