Rich haul of medals for archers at Shanghai World Cup Stage IV

first_imgIt was a stellar day for Indian archery at the World Cup Stage IV with a haul of a gold, a silver and a bronze medal in Shanghai on Saturday.While the women’s recurve team of Deepika Kumari, Laishram Bombayla Devi and Chekrovolu Swuro put it across Italy in the final, Deepika secured a bronze in the individual event after beating Erwina Safitri of Indonesia.In another heartening result, the compound team of Jignas Chittibomma, Chinnaraju Srither and Kh. Ratan Singh finished with a silver medal after losing to powerhouses United States in the final.It is the first medal ever for the Indian men’s compound team in a World Cup. The Indian women’s recurve team exacted revenge for the disappointment suffered at the Turin world championships, where the Italians reigned supreme on home turf.Jignas Chittibomma was part of the Indian men’s compound team.The Indian trio took an early lead after six arrows when the team of Pia Carmen Lionetti, Guendalina Sartori and Natalia Valeeva got off to a bad start.India led 52-47 after the first end.In the second, India were marginally better than their opponents but put the issue beyond doubt with a dominant 57-51 edge in the third end with three 10s in a row. It meant that even though the Italians took the fourth end 54-53, they could not prevent India from sealing a comprehensive 215-204 triumph.In all, the Indians had seven perfect 10s to five for the Italians.Mexico bagged the bronze medal with a 216-207 win over Russia.advertisementThe women’s individual bronze medal match, soon after the team final, was a contest between two teenagers as the 17-year-old Deepika upstaged Safitri, who is a year older to her, 6-4.It was a rematch of the quarter- final at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games where the Indian prevailed 7-3.However, Saturday’s match was not an easy affair as Deepika had to recover from an early deficit and the contest was decided by the final arrow in the fifth set.The Indonesian had an impressive 8-10-10 start to an 8-9-8 from Deepika to take the first set 28-25. But the Indian quickly recovered and took the next two sets 28-26 and 26-24.However, Safitri forced a decider taking the fourth set with a 29- 26 result, aided by two perfect 10s.In the fifth set, Deepika edged ahead 9- 8 after the first arrow.The contest rested on a knife’s edge when both archers scored 10 in the second arrow.The Indian let the door ajar with an eight on her final attempt and the Indonesian could have won the contest with a 10.However, pressure got to her and she could only manage seven and the medal went to the more consistent Deepika.The Indian had only two perfect 10s as against six from the Indonesian. Deepika got out of the yellow zone just five times while Safitri did so on eight occasions. Russia’s Inna Stepanova won the gold medal beating Berengere Schuh 6-4.In the men’s compound event, the Indians went down 235-229 to Americans Braden Gellenthien, Reo Wilde and Rodger Willett Junior. It was the first match between the two teams in the event. The Indians were at par with their opponents in the second and third ends but the lead they conceded at the start and the end proved crucial. The six straight 10s the Americans scored in the first end was the highlight. Mexico defeated Australia 234-231 for the bronze.The women’s compound team of Jhano Hansdah, Gagandeep Kaur and Namita Yadav missed out on a medal when they went down 217- 219 to the Philippines in the bronze medal match.The men’s recurve team of Atanu Das, Thupuvoyi Swuro and Jayanta Talukdar finished seventh.last_img read more

And United’s interim manager may yet have one or two names in mind when it comes to aiding his side’s wonderkid search in Norway.
