Para-archer Pooja Jatyan scripted history as she became the first Indian to win a silver in an individual section of the Para World Championships. Pooja lost to Italian Petrilli Vincenza in the summit clash. Pooja, who is afflicted with polio, raced to a 3-1 lead but the world No. 7 Italian used her vast experience to bounce back and win 24-24, 23-21, 26-28, 24-26, 25-27. India ended its campaign with two silver medals, a first for the country.
