Deepika to fight for bronze in Archery World Cup
Deepika Kumari will battle for a bronze in the individual recurve section after she lost in the semi-final of the Archery World Cup Stage IV being held in Wroclaw, Poland.
According to information received, Deepika lost to Jing Xu of China 6-5 in the semifinals on Thursday and she will now take on Tatiana Segina of Russia in the bronze medal play-off on Sunday.
The loss may also prove to be a dampner for the three-time World Cup Final silver medallist’s hope for a place in the season-ending meet in Lausanne from September 5-7.
In the women’s compound individual, Purvasha Shende lost to Sara Lopez of Colombia 143-141 in the quarters while none of the other Indians could even make the last eight.
