Gabriel Monika, 20, had a shot at gold at the 2022 Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam last year, and the squad will have to breathe a sigh of relief as Cambodia scrapes the event at this year’s edition.

The younger Bidor was most consistent with her bow last year, where she easily achieved the Olympic minimum qualifying standard of 610 points across all four tournaments.
Gabriel Monica topped three Philippine Archery Cups with scores of 620, 631 and 621 before shooting 628 in the Philippine National Archery Championship on October 30 in a 72-bowler event at the Olympic distance of 70 meters. Prove your competence again. INQ
