India’s women recurve team shocked top seeds Germany 5-3 to set up a gold medal clash with the Chinese Taipei in the first stage of Archery World Cup at the Yuanshen Stadium here on Friday.

India also remained in medal hunt in the men’s team and mixed pair in the recurve section but it was a forgettable outing for the compound archers who will return empty-handed after failing to progress to the medal round.

 

The trio of Deepika Kumari, Laishram Bombayla Devi and Laxmirani Majhi bounced back from their disappointing run in the individual events on Thursday to down their German opponents.

Seventh seed Chinese Taipei thrashed higher-ranked Russia 6-0 in the other semi-final.

All the recurve medals events will be held on Sunday, while it will be the compound finals on Saturday.

The recurve men’s team of Atanu Das, Jayanta Talukdar and Mangal Singh Champia, who qualified as third seeds were pipped by second seeds the Netherlands 5-4 in the shoot off (28-30) in the semi-finals.

The Indian men’s team will face ninth seed Britain in the bronze medal play-off.

 

It was a disappointing outing for men’s compound team who made a first round exit losing to lower-ranked Iran 226-233.
