Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.

Today we are hearing about the South Korean archery team and learning the word demanding.

In the bow and arrow sport, archery, South Korea is the country to beat in next year's Olympic games.

South Korea came top of the medal table in archery in the last Olympics, in Beijing.

This week BBC reporter John Sudworth has been to the South Korean archery training centre.

Listen for how many hours a day the archers train for and listen for the word demanding.

Clip

I don’t know if you have ever tried to use a bow and arrow but believe me the amount of tension you need just to tension the bow like that, requires really quite a large amount of physical strength and these guys are here 6 days a week, 6 hours a day, 300 arrows a day. That’s enormously physically demanding.
