Indian junior archery team won four medals at the Asian Grand Prix Championship

It has come to light that Archery Association of India president Vijay Kumar Malhotra on Friday congratulated the Indian junior archery team for winning an inspiring haul of four medals, including one gold at the Asian Grand Prix Championship at Ulannbaatar in Mongolia.

Malhotra stated that it is for the first time in the Indian archery history when compound archers won four medals in one international competition. The stunning count of four medals comprised 1 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals.

Y Charan Reddy along with Ramakanta Sharma and Ravi Sharma had an excellent tournament by winning gold medal in the compound men title. Apart from bagging a silver medal in the compound mixed team event along with Mihu Maselo, he won a bronze medal in compound men individual event too.

The rest of the team including Maselo, Yumi Sorang and Dudhwal Swati won a bronze medal too in the compound team event for women.

With the loss of Binod Swansi and Mihu Maselo in their third-fourth place play-off matches respectively, India missed out on two individual bronze medals in recurve men as well as compound women categories.

Malhotra declared that it is good indication for Indian archery as second and third line of their archers are performing well in first tournament of their career too and are keeping pace with the senior Archers who won 1 gold and 2 Bronze medals in the third World Cup which concluded at Medelllin in Columbia recently.

Subsequently, the junior archers are supposed to compete at the Youth World Archery Championship scheduled to be held at Wuxi in China from 13th to 20th October this year.
