Fifteen-year-old American Liko Arreola made history at the Archery World Cup in Medellín as she claimed the women's individual compound title.

The teenager upset Colombia's home archer Sara Lopez 10-9 following a one-arrow shoot-off at Parques de Río.

At 15 years and 330 days, she is the youngest individual medallist at a World Cup stage, with her win all the more impressive as it came against multiple world champion Lopez.

The pair ended locked on 145-145 before Arreola fired in a 10 for victory.

"I was so nervous the whole way and I tried not to give up and did the best I could but it was nerve-wracking," said Arreola.

It turned out to be a double celebration for Arreola, who won the women's team compound title with the US, alongside Alexis Ruiz and Olivia Dean.

Colombia were again beaten in the final as the Americans triumphed 233-231.

Guatemala claimed their first Archery World Cup medal thanks to a shock victory over Mexico in the men's team compound final.

The eighth seeds of Julio Barillas, Jose Marcelo Del Cid and Pedro Salazar triumphed 235-230.

"I dropped to my knees and I'm so happy," said Barillas. 

"It means a lot to me because I've been shooting for 15 years and it was a dream to come to Medellín to win a gold."

The US picked up another gold in the mixed team recurve as they saw off South Korea 18-17 following a shoot-off.

This prevented the South Koreans from claiming a clean sweep of the recurve team titles as the men's and women's events both went their way.

Their men saw off Chinese Taipei 6-0 and the women defeated China by the same score.

Lim Sihyeon did win the individual women's recurve title for South Korea after defeating Angela Ruiz of Mexico via a shoot-off.

Ruiz battled back from 4-0 behind before Lim made it back-to-back World Cup golds with a 9-8 success.

The Mexican could have taken victory but only scored eight, allowing the Korean to clinch it with a nine.

In the men's recurve, Mauro Nespoli of Italy claimed a 6-4 victory over South Korea's Kim Je Deok, thanks to a 10 with his final arrow.

India’s Abhishek Verma triumphed in the individual men's compound as he saw off James Lutz of the US 148-146 to win at his first World Cup of 2023.

Colombia did enjoy a home gold medal in the mixed team compound, beating Mexico 154-152.
