Yessica Camilo González (born December 23, 1993) is a competitive archer from the Dominican Republic.[1]

At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Camilo etched a historic mark for her country to compete in an Olympic tournament, shooting only in the women's individual recurve.[2][3] Heading to the knockout stage as the lowest-ranked archer of the 64-female field with a score of 525 points, 4 perfect tens, and single bull's eye, Camilo lost her opening round match to the top-seeded South Korean and team recurve champion Choi Mi-sun, who comfortably dispatched her from the tournament with an easy 6–0 score.[4][5][6]
