India bag bronze in Archery WC
Shanghai: India ended their campaign with a bronze medal in the compound mixed pair event at stage one of the Archery World Cup here on Saturday.
In hunt for three bronze medals, India could only succeed in the mixed pair event when Abhishek Verma and Jyothi Surekha Vennam combined to prevail over the Turkish team of Yesim Bostan and Demir Elmaagacli 154-148.
Bostan and Elmaagacli were no match to the Indian pair who led 39-35 in the first end with three perfect 10s including one X. Verma and Jyothi extended the lead by 78-73 after the second end and continued their consistent show in the final end with another 39 to win by six points. India however lost both their matches in the men's and women's compound team events.
India thus ended their campaign with just one medal as none of the recurve archers are in medal fray.
