London Olympics 2012: Indian women’s archery team knocked outLondon: The Indian women's archery team was off target in crunch situations as it lost to Denmark by a point in a see-saw pre-quarterfinal battle at the Lord's Cricket Ground on Sunday.

The trio of world number one Deepika Kumari, Bombayla Devi and Chekrovolu Swuro lost 210-211 to the Danish team, comprising Louise Laursen, Maja Jager and Carina Christiansen.

Even though the Indians hit more perfect 10s than their rivals, the Danish saved their best for key moments in which the Indians seemed to wilt under pressure.

The Danes hit the bulls' eye thrice compared to just once by the Indians, who were hampered by Deepika's indifferent form.

Bombayla, however, seemed in good touch and kept the team in the hunt till the end, getting most of the 10s - including 3 in a row, but Swuro fired a poor 5 and then a 6 to let the team down.

The Indians managed to win the first and the last sets, but the Danes held the overall lead.

Earlier, the men's team had crashed out at the pre-quarterfinal stage yesterday after losing to Japan.

The archers now have to look forward to the individual events starting tomorrow.
