    Default Archery World Cup: Das-Deepika eye bronze after semis loss

    Indian pair of Atanu Das and Deepika Kumari faltered against American Olympic medalists Brady Ellison and Khatuna Lorig in the mixed section semifinals of the Archery World Cup Stage 3 being held in Medellin, Colombia.



    The duo from US, who had won the mixed team gold in Shanghai World Cup, took a 39-34 lead in the first end and went on to record a close 150-146 win over the fourth seeded Indian pair on Wednesday.
    India will now hope for a bronze medal as Das-Deepika will fight it out against the Mexican team of Aida Roman and Juan Rene Serrano, the bronze medallists in Antalya, in the playoff scheduled later on Thursday night.
    Asian Games sliver medallist Tarundeep Rai, who finished last in the qualification round, bounced back to make the third round of the men's event.
    Rai overcame a 1-3 deficit to stun no 17 seed Thomas Faucheron of France 6-4 even as his teammate Jayanta Talukdar was stopped by Brazil's Marcos Bortoloto.
    Rai, who earlier beat Andres Aguilar Gimpel of China 7-1, will face no 16 seed Thomas Aubert of France in the last-32.
    Fifth seed Atanu Das got a bye into the last 32 and will take on Norwegian Baard Nesteng.
    In the women's recurve, 2007 World Cup Final winner Dola Banerjee continued her poor run as she was shown the door by no 33 Marina Canetta Gobbi of Brazil.
    However Rimil Biruly beat Fatima Hernandez of Dominican Republic 6-2 to set up a round of 32 clash against Lya Solano of Dominican Republic.
    Deepika and Laishram Bombayla Devi have been seeded directly into the round of 32.
    Deepika Kumari will face Regina Maria Romero of Guatemala, while Bombayla will take on Cuban Maydenia Sarduy.
    Meanwhile in the compound division, India qualified sixth in both men's and women's sections.

    Default India win bronze in Archery World Cup

    India clinched a bronze medal in the compound men's team event to open their account in the Archery World Cup Stage 3 being held in Medellin, Colombia.



    Rajat Chouhan, Sandeep Kumar and Ratan Singh Khuraijam overcame a stiff resistance from the hosts to win 215-210 en route to the bronze medal on Saturday.
    The trio of Deepika Kumari, Laishram Bombayla Devi and Rimil Biruly will aim for a gold in the women's recurve team summit clash against the top seeded Chinese later on Sunday.
    India has another medal chance in the recurve mixed team bronze play-off where Atanu Das and Deepika will fight it out against the Mexicans.
    In compound bronze medal play-off held under difficult windy conditions, the Indians were up against the home favourites Juan Carlos Carrasquilla, Camilo Andres Cardona and and José Carlos Ospina as there was a huge crowd cheering for the Colombian trio.
    But the Indian threesome began solidly out of the gate to take a 52-50 lead in the first end.
    The Colombians made a comeback in the second end with two perfect 10s for a cumulative 54 against Indians' 50 to take the lead 104-102.
    Fresh from a mixed silver medal in the last World Cup in Antalya, Rajasthan lad Chouhan inspired the team to four perfect 10s en route to 56 as India snatched the lead 158-156 at the penultimate round.
    The Indians did not look back as the trio clinched the issue easily shooting 57 to deny the Colombians their first World Cup medal in the compound men's category.
    The French men's team won their first gold medal since 2008, while the US women defeated Colombia in a rematch of the Antalya World Cup.
