Archery World Cup: Indian women win recurve team gold

Medellin, July 22: World number 3 Deepika Kumari came up with a stunning effort to lead India to a commanding 201-186 win over China in Women’s Recurve Team Final at Archery World Cup Stage 3 being held in Medellin, Colombia.

Deepika had crashed out of the singles competition at the quarterfinal stage but she showed her class by hitting four 10s in tricky conditions to allow India to reclaim the Women’s Recurve Team gold after a two-year gap.

Bombayla Devi Laishram and Rimil Buriuly gave good support to Deepika as India beat China 201-186 to claim their second medal of this World Cup and their first World Cup Women’s team gold since Shanghai 2011.

Earlier, India clinched a bronze medal in the compound men's team event to open their account. Rajat Chouhan, Sandeep Kumar and Ratan Singh Khuraijam overcame a stiff resistance from the hosts Colombia to win 215-210 en route to the bronze medal on Saturday.
