Kuo Cheng Wei (simplified Chinese: 郭政伟; traditional Chinese: 郭振維; pinyin: Guō Zhèngwěi; born 9 November 1983) is a Taiwanese professional archer representing Chinese Taipei. He competed in Archery at the 2006 Asian Games and won a silver medal with the men's team consisting of himself, Chen Szu Yuan, Hsu Tzu Yi and Wang Cheng Pang

2008 Summer Olympics[edit]

At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing Kuo finished his ranking round with a total of 659 points. This gave him the 29th seed for the final competition bracket in which he faced Mark Javier in the first round, beating the Philippine 106-102. In the second round Kuo was eliminated by Park Kyung-Mo with just one point (111-110). Park would eventually win the silver medal.[1]

Together with Chen Szu-Yuan and Wang Cheng-Pang he also took part in the team event. With his 659 score from the ranking round combined with the 654 of Chen and the 667 of Wang they were in seventh position after the ranking round. In the first round they were too strong for the American team 222-218, but in the quarter final they were unable to beat the Ukrainian team 214-211.[1]
