Archery

India’s campaign in women’s archery came to an abrupt end with the elimination of both Deepika Kumari and Bombayla Devi at the pre-quarterfinal stage. Both Deepika and Bombayla crashed out after being found wanting in a pressure-cooker atmosphere.

Deepika was up against World no two, Tan Ya-Ting, of Chinese Taipei, and was blanked 0-6 (27-28, 26-29, 27-30) – losing in straight sets, while Bombayla lost 2-6 to World no 18 Alejandra Valencia of Mexico (26-28, 26-23, 27-28, 23-25), after winning the second set. Both the archers were guilty of letting their nerves get the better of them.
