INCHEON, Sept. 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korea picked up another gold medal in archery at the Asian Games on Sunday, this time in women's team recurve.

Jung Dasomi, Chang Hye-jin and Lee Tuk-young cruised to a comfortable win over China 6-0 in the set score to clinch another gold to add to the country's already extensive medal collection in the sport. The Chinese archers were Cheng Ming, Xu Jing and Zhu Jueman.

Japan claimed the bronze after a dramatic shoot-off with India. One of its arrows was determined to be a 10 instead of a 9, awarding Japan a one-point victory. The events took place at the Gyeyang Asiad Archery Field in Incheon, the host city west of Seoul.

This is South Korea's third archery title at this Asian Games following two gold medals in women's individual and team compound archery Saturday. It is also South Korea's fifth straight Asiad gold in the women's team recurve.
