Lee a big loss to Australian archery program

16 October 2005

Ki Sik Lee is quitting as head coach of the AIS and Australian archery teams after eight years in charge.

Lee, the driving force behind Australia's international success, wants to seek new challenges within the sport.

``I have enjoyed my time in Australia and look back with great pride at the success we have achieved on the international stage,'' Lee said.

``I just feel that now is the time to move on and therefore have decided to accept a coaching position in the United States.

``Australia will always hold a special place in my heart and I will continue to watch with great interest the progression of archers through the ranks.''

Lee coached Simon Fairweather and Tim Cuddihy to Olympic success.

Fairweather won Australia's first Olympic medal in the sport awhen he won gold at the Sydney Olympics, while Cuddihy won bronze in Athens last year.
