Yu Guan-lin (Chinese: 余冠燐; pinyin: Yú Guānlín; born November 29, 1993) is a Taiwanese competitive archer.[1] He won a bronze medal in the men's team recurve at the 2015 Asian Championships, and also competed as a member of Chinese Taipei's archery squad at the 2016 Summer Olympics.[2][3]

Yu was selected to compete for the Taiwanese squad at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, shooting both in individual and team recurve tournaments.[2] First, Yu amassed a total of 679 points out of a maximum 720 to obtain the thirty-ninth seed heading to the knockout stage, along with his team's score of 1,995 collected from the classification round.[4] Entering the men's team recurve as the seventh-seeded squad, Yu and fellow rookies Kao Hao-wen and Wei Chun-heng succumbed unexpectedly to a tough 2–6 defeat from the unheralded Indonesians in their elimination round match.[5] Unable to recover from his team's premature exit, Yu was shortly eliminated in a tough 5–6 shoot-off against Norway's three-time Olympian Bård Nesteng during their opening-round encounter of theA men's individual recurve.[6]
