Indian recurve team

Special Correspondent

KOLKATA: A six-member Indian recurve archery team has been named for the World championship coming up at Turin (Italy) from July 4 to 10. The team includes Asian Games silver medallist Tarundeep Rai and Commonwealth Games women's gold medallist Deepika Kumari.

The team, to be accompanied by two coaches and a physiotherapist, will be captained by the Archery Association of India secretary general, P.N. Mukherjee. He will also represent India in the 49th FITA Congress that will precede the championship. The team leaves on Thursday.

India can book a maximum of six places — three men and as many women — if the two teams win their first round matches in the team championship. The top eight teams in either section will make it to London and obviously the Indians' first target will be to do well in the qualifying rounds, first individually and collectively during the team championship.

As many as 571 archers from 87 countries have entered the championship.

The team: Men: Rahul Banerjee, Tarundeep Rai and Jayanta Talukdar. Women: Deepika Kumari, Laishram Bombayla Devi and Chekrovolu Swuro. Coaches: Ravi Shankar and Purnima Mahato. Physio: Jaidip Daschowdhury. Delegate and non-playing captain: P.N. Mukherjee .
