After a fine gritty performance in the qualifiers, Indian archer Atanu Das will be eyeing a medal when he begins his campaign in the elimination round of the Olympic Games here on Tuesday.

Das showed fine composure and skill to bounce back from a poor start in his maiden Olympics to finish fifth in the qualification round. 

He will begin his elimination round against lowly 60th ranked Jitbahadur Muktan of Nepal.

Lying a lowly 10th after first 36 arrows, the 24-year-old Kolkata lad turned it around in style in the final set of 36 arrows by shooting 23 perfect 10s including 10 closest to the centre to finish fifth with 683 out of the possible 720.
