New Delhi: Indian women’s archery team defeated China in the recurve event to claim the gold medal at the Archery World Cup Stage 3 in Medellin, Columbia on Sunday.
The team of Rimil Buriuly, L Bombayla Devi and Deepika Kumari outclassed the top seeded Chinese trio of Xu Jing, Cheng Ming and Cui Yuanyuan 201-186.
This is India’s first World Cup Women’s team gold since their triumph in Shanghai back in 2011.
Earlier, India clinched a bronze medal in the compound men`s team event to open their account in the Archery World Cup.
I`ve always said the person who wins the world championship this year is the person who does the best job on the circuit, but that does not seem the way it is at the moment.
