Indian duo wins silver

KOLKATA: Jayanta Talukdar and Deepika Kumari had to settle for silver in the recurve mixed team event of the World Cup (Stage II) archery competition at Antalya on Sunday. The Indians lost to the Chinese pair of Dai Xiaoxiang and Fang Yuting 133-136 in a rain-marred final.

The Indian duo was behind right from the first end of four arrows collecting only 29 points, against the Chinese's 30.

The trend continued in the second end as well when the Indians scored 33 and their rivals earned 34.

In the third end too the Indians were behind by a point (35-36).

The three-point lead came very handy for the Chinese as, in the final end of four arrows, both scored 36 points each, which left the Chinese a 136-133 winner.

This was the first time an Indian side had reached the final of the mixed team event.

Apart from the recurve mixed team silver, the 11-member Indian contingent did not win any medal in neither the individual nor in the team competition of this meet.
