Rate this post

The focus of the archery world shifts to Yecheon, South Korea, as Stage 2 of the 18th edition of the
Archery World Cup kicks off on May 21st.
This follows a stellar performance by Indian archers in Stage 1 in China, where they secured their highest ever medal tally of eight, including five golds.
This was India’s highest medal tally at any single edition of an Archery World Cup.

All eyes will be on the men’s recurve team, who clinched their historic first-ever gold medal in Stage 1 at Shanghai by defeating archery powerhouse and world champions South Korea in the final.

In the recurve women’s category, a key player to watch will be the impressive Deepika, who
showcased her talent by overcoming two South Korean opponents in the quarterfinals and
semifinals, only to be edged out by another South Korean, Lim Sihyeon, in the gold medal match.

In the compound women’s category, the archer to watch will be Asian Games champion Jyothi
Vennam, India’s most decorated compound archer.

Vennam’s stellar performance in Shanghai included three gold medals, showcasing her dominance in the women’s compound category.

In the recurve men’s category, rising star Dheeraj Bommadevara impressed at Stage 1 with a recurve bronze and a team silver.

It will be interesting to watch him build on that momentum and challenge for a podium finish in Yecheon.

After winning a silver medal in the compound men’s event at Stage 1, Priyansh will be aiming to
place on the podium once more in Yecheon.
