Limba worried about Asian Games show due to lack of practice

Kolkata: Indian archery coach Limba Ram is unhappy with the team`s preparation for the upcoming Asian Games in China, where they are up for an "extremely tough challenge."

Talking to reporters ahead of their departure, Limba said his archers were robbed of practice due to at least a dozen felicitations for their overwhelming show in the Commonwealth Games.

"I`m really worried. We did not get any time after the Commonwealth Games for training. It`s difficult to say we are confident of a good show in the Asian Games," Limba said.

With no compound event, there will be four gold medals up for grabs in the recurve section and India will be eyeing the men`s team gold in a field boasting of world champions Korea, Japan, Chinese Taipei and hosts China, Limba said.

Thus, if the Indian coach is to be believed, the dream run may come to an end for the archers who are fresh from their three gold, one silver and four bronze medals earnings at Delhi 2010.
