Rahul Banerjee: The final Olympic qualification event was organised during the World Cup Stage III at Ogden, Utah, in the United States, last month.

Indian archers Rahul Banerjee, Tarundeep Rai and Jayanta Talukdar were in good form going into the event, and were confident of sealing their berth for the London Games.

The earth beneath Banerjee’s feet was shaken when he came to know that his bow box hadn’t arrived from India.

He participated with a borrowed box and did wonders as he shot 79 out of 80. He has now received his missing box and thus the Arjuna award winner can now entirely focus on the London Games.
