Deepika Kumari clinches silver at 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games test event

India’s top-ranked woman archer Deepika Kumari today clinched silver at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games test event.  

Ranked fourth in the qualification round, Deepika went down to Korean An San in straight sets. The second seed San produced fine shooting including a flawless third set to clinch the match 6-0 in her favour. 

This was Deepika’s first individual final in a world event since she won a gold at the third stage of the World Cup in Salt Lake City in June last year. 

In the men’s category, India had a forgettable outing with country’s top-ranked Atanu Das making a second round exit, losing to Bae Jaehyeon of Korea 4-6.
