Archery World Cup Stage 3: Indian women’s recurve team storms into final

0

A
day
after
all
of
them
slipped
out
of
top-30
in
the
qualifying
round
to
get
a
lowly
13th
seed,
the
trio
of
Deepika
Kumari,
Ankita
Bhakat
and
Simranjeet
Kaur
beat
Ukraine,
Britain
and
Turkey
en
route
the
summit
clash.

They
will
be
against
Chinese
Taipei
on
Sunday
(June
26).

The
Indian
women’s
recurve
trio
started
off
by
eliminating
fourth-seed
Ukraine
5-1
(57-53
57-54
55-55).

Against
Great
Britain
in
the
quarterfinals,
they
dropped
just
four
points
to
down
their
opponents
6-0
(59-51
59-51
58-50).

In
the
semifinals,
they
had
a
slow
start,
aggregating
56
in
the
first
set
but
their
eighth-seeded
Turkish
rivals
Gulnaz
Coskun,
Ezgi
Basaran
and
Yasemin
Anagoz
shot
a
poor
51
to
concede
the
first
set
by
five
points.

The
Indians
stepped
up
in
the
second
set
to
edge
out
their
rivals
by
one-point
before
they
went
on
to
lose
their
first
set
of
the
day
when
the
Turkish
team
won
the
third
55-54
to
make
it
2-4.

Needing
a
tie
in
the
fourth
set
to
confirm
their
passage
to
the
final,
the
Indians
held
their
nerve
and
stood
to
their
task
for
a
5-3
(56-51
57-56
54-55
55-55)
win.

Luck
also
was
on
their
side
as
they
did
not
have
to
face
their
nemesis
Koreans
as
the
top-seeds
were
upset
by
eighth-seeded
Turkish
team
in
the
quarters.

In
the
final
on
Sunday,
they
will
be
up
against
the
third
seed
Chinese
Taipei,
who
have
Rio
Olympics
team
bronze
medallist
Lei
Chien-Ying
in
the
line
up.

The
men’s
recurve
team
of
Tarundeep
Rai,
Jayanta
Talukdar
and
Pravin
Jadhav,
seeded
eighth,
was
eliminated
after
losing
first
round
against
Switzerland.

Having
got
a
bye
into
the
pre-quarters,
the
Indian
trio
lost
4-5
to
Florian
Faber,
Keziah
Chabin
and
Thomas
Rufer
in
the
shoot-off
(53-57
58-54
49-53
58-50)
(25-25).

The
shoot-off
also
was
a
tie
and
the
Swiss
team
was
declared
winner
since
its
final
arrow
landed
close
to
the
centre.

Locked
two-all,
Indians
suffered
badly
in
the
third
set
shooting
a
series
of
five
8s,
which
proved
to
be
decisive
in
the
end.
