Indian Archers set-off to Paris for World Cup Stage-3
“The women archers have settled down at the Vichy Sports Complex, about four hours’ drive from Paris,” Archery Association of India (AAI) said in a media release on Tuesday.
It said that the men’s recurve and the compound teams in both the men’s and women’s section would board the flight to Paris in the early hours of Wednesday to compete in the World Cup Stage-3.
The men’s recurve team of Atanu Das, Tarundeep Rai and Pravin Ramesh Jadhav, has already secured three quota places by virtue of their team silver at the World Championships in the Netherlands.
As far as women archers are concerned Deepika has bagged the quota, Ankita and reigning under-18 world champion Komalika will attempt to augment country’s women’s quota for the Olympics from one to a full three in Paris. .
