Slovakia will make its return to the Olympics in Archery. After the historic debut 5 years ago in Rio de Janeiro 2016.

 

During the mentioned premiere, Slovakia even had a double representation on the Sambodromo venue.

Alexandra Longová as very first slovak archer under the five rings ever, managed to reach the 2nd round of the women individual competition as 22nd of the Ranking Round, beat Laxmirani Majhi of India 7-1 in the opener to then lost to Qi Yuhong of China 0-6 in the Round 2.

We had even a Male representative there, but the young Boris Baláž (59th in Ranking Round) lost already in the 1st round to the eventual future Olympic Champion Ku Bon-Chan of South Korea 0-6.

 

This time Slovakia will compete in Archery again, 2nd consecutive and 2nd Olympic ever for our Archery. However, only one Female athlete will be the sole representative of the country in Tokyo 2020 Archery competitions.

Denisa Baránková will have the honor to follow up on Longová´s participation in Rio.

 

Denisa a 19 years old fresh High school graduate (couple of weeks ago) will be the youngest Athlete of the whole Slovak delegation in Tokyo, a couple of months younger than 400m Hurdles runner Emma Zapletalová.

 

Denisa qualified to the Games by reaching the Quarterfinals at the European Continental Qualification Tournament during the European Archery Championships in Turkey this May. In the reduced final ranking it meant the 4th last available spot for the Olympics there.

It was in fact double win-win day for Baránková. She also met the national criterias during the same competition by defeating in her road to  her Olympic debut, in a direct national quota bout Alexandra Longová 6-0 in the 2nd round of that event.

I am one of those who never had trust in archery team. Deepika Kumari did take help from a sports psychologist. Don't know how much it has helped
