Archery World Cup Stage 3 | Deepika the star in India’s gold rush


Helps country win the women’s team, mixed team categories; emerges on top in individual event

Olympic-bound archer Deepika Kumari helped India claim three recurve gold medals in the Archery World Cup Stage-3 here on Sunday.

Thanks to Deepika’s consistent efforts, India took the top honour in women’s team, mixed team and women’s individual events.


Adding to the kitty

With one compound gold, the country gathered four gold medals here.

Deepika first joined hands with Komalika Bari and Ankita Bhakat to beat Mexico’s Alejandra Valencia, Ana Vazquez and Aida Roman 5-1 in the final and take the women’s team title.

After sharing honours in the first set (57-57), the Indian trio won the next two (55-54, 55-52) to add four more points and seal victory.


This was the second gold for the Indian women’s team, which could not get an Olympics quota place, after the Guatemala-leg this year.

Perfect couple

Deepika then combined with her husband Atanu Das to bag the mixed team crown. The Indian couple fought back to beat the Dutch duo of Gabriela Schloesser and Sjef van der Berg, the winner of the previous World Cup in Laussane, 5-3 in the summit clash.

After losing the first set (37-38), Deepika and Atanu took the next two (36-33, 39-37) and shared points in the last (38-38) to emerge victorious and enhance their chances in Tokyo.


Deepika saw off Ana Vazquez 6-2 in the women’s individual semifinals before beating Russian Elena Osipova 6-0 in the final.

The Indian, the World Cup Stage-1 winner, showed her accuracy to win the first three sets (29-26, 29-28, 28-27) in the title clash and get her second individual gold medal this year.
