Deepika bags bronzeDecember 6, 2017
India returned with a solitary bronze medal by Deepika Kumari at the Indoor Archery World Cup Stage 2 that concluded here recently.
Deepika, seeded third, defeated 13th seeded Sayana Tsyrempilova of Russia 7-3 in the women’s recurve bronze play-off to bring some smile to the camp after the men’s top seed Atanu Das crashed out in round two.
Deepika got past three of her teammates Nivetha Ganesan 6-0, Laishram Bombayla Devi 7-3 and Ankita Bhakat 6-2 to make the last-four.
But Korean second seed Kim Surin shattered Deepika’s gold medal dream with a thrilling 6-5 win in the shoot-off (10-9).
