Biography

Aida ROMAN

Mexican archery stars Aida Román and Mariana Avitia made history at Lord’s Cricket Ground in the London 2012 Games by winning Mexico its first Olympic medals in the sport.

The duo’s achievement in taking silver and bronze in the individual competition was all the more remarkable given the continuing domination of the sport by the Republic of Korea – who top the all-time medal table with 30 appearances on the podium.

Román, 24, from Monterrey, was unbeatable in the early rounds of the event and eventually came up against her countrywoman Avitia, who shares the same coach, Song I Woo, in the semi-final.

After Román prevailed 6-2 she told journalists: “I was really happy at having come up against Mariana. I felt much more relaxed shooting against her. We are a team whether we are competing in the team or individual event. I was relaxed and in control.”
