Kolkata: Buoyed by their gold medal win in the Archery World Cup Stage IV, Indian women`s recurve team has climbed four places to be at number three position in FITA world rankings.

Delhi Commonwealth Games gold medallist and former world No. 1, Deepika Kumari, who bagged two bronze and a gold in the Wroclaw event, jumped six places to be world no 13.
