Indian women win gold at World Cup Archery

Indian women’s recurve team upset the South Korean team to win gold medal in the World Cup Archery (Stage IV) at Wroclaw, Poland for their second successive gold after Medellin meet.

Deepika Kumari, Laishram Bombayla Devi, and Rimil Buriuly stunned world champions South Koreans 219-215 in a thrilling final as Indian archery team returned with the solitary gold from the last leg of the World Cup.

Deepika concluded the four World Stages with two golds (Medellin, Wroclaw) and two silvers (both Shanghai) and one bronze (Medellin). Deepika had returned empty-handed from Stage 2 in Antalya.

Based on her performances in the four World Stages, Deepika finished inside top seven to qualify for the World Cup Finals to be held on 21st and 22nd September in Paris.

Deepika thus qualified for the Finals for second year in a row. In her maiden appearance in Tokyo last year, Deepika had returned with Silver medal. Based on their rankings after four stages of the World Cup, top seven archers in men’s and women’s sections make the cut for the Finals, while the hosts country (France) get a quota berth. Dola Banerjee is the only Indian to have won Gold medal in the 2007 World Finals.
