Archery World Championships: Indian compound women’s team win bronze

Indian women’s compound archery team of Jyothi Surekha Vennam, Muskan Kirar and Raj Kaur came from behind to down Turkey by three points and win a bronze medal in the World Championships in the Netherlands today.

Jyothi led the fightback as the Asian Games silver medallist overcame a jittery start to shoot six perfect 10s out of eight arrows to seal a 229-226 win and open their account.

India are also in the fray for a first-ever World Championship gold medal with the men’s recurve team taking on China tomorrow in a bid to upgrade their 2005 Madrid silver medal.
