Evangelia Psarra

Evangelia Psarra (born June 17, 1974 in Thessaloniki) is a Greek archer. She represented Greece at the 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympic games.[1]

In 2004 she placed 8th in the women's individual ranking round with a 72-arrow score of 652. In the first round of elimination, she faced 57th-ranked Jo-Ann Galbraith of Australia. Psarra defeated Galbraith 138-116 in the 18-arrow match to advance to the round of 32. In that round, she faced 25th-ranked Turkish archer Zekiye Keskin Satir, defeating her 163-161. Psarra then defeated 24th-ranked Almudena Gallardo of Spain 160-152, advancing to the quarterfinals. In the quarterfinals, Psarra faced Park Sung Hyun of Korea, losing to the 1st-ranked and eventual gold medalist archer. The final score of 111-110 in the 12 arrow match placed Psarra 7th overall in women's individual archery. Psarra was also a member of the 5th-place Greek team in the women's team archery competition.

At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing Psarra finished her ranking round with a total of 613 points. This gave her the 50th seed for the final competition bracket in which she faced Chen Ling in the first round. The local Chinese favourite archer won the confrontation with 110-101 and eliminated Psarra straight away.[2]

Psarra lost to Bombayla Devi Laishram in the first knockout round at the 2012 Summer Olympics.[3]
