London: Mexico ended its medal drought in Olympic archery here Thursday with a double triumph for Aida Roman and Mariana Avitia, who came away with the silver and bronze respectively.

South Korea`s Ki Bo-bae beat Roman in the final to take the gold.


Roman, 24, reached the finals after victories over Miki Kanie of Japan, Italy`s Pia Lionetti and teammate Avitia.

"The feeling is incredible," Roman said. "I have been training my whole life and I have made it. This medal is for me, for my family and for everyone who has supported me. And, of course, for Mexico."


Mariana Avitia, an 18-year-old, upset South Korean archer Lee Sung-jin in the quarterfinals and went on to defeat Khatuna Lorig of the US in the bronze-medal match.

"I am very, very happy, this is a very moving moment in the life of an athlete," Avitia said after winning the bronze.

"To have the support of my family and my coach has been very important for me. Thank you, Mexico. I love you," she said.
