The Sports Ministry announced on Monday that former top-ranked archer Deepika Kumari, who recently secured a silver medal at the World Cup in Shanghai, has been reintroduced to the Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) core group as preparations for the Paris Games get underway. After taking a break from the sport following the birth of her child in December 2022, Deepika has returned to competition and is performing well in both domestic and international events.

Deepika, a 29-year-old recurve archer who has competed in three Olympic Games, also earned a medal at this year’s Asia Cup. Currently, Dhiraj Bommadevara is the only male archer from India who has qualified for the Paris Olympics, thanks to his silver medal at the Asian Qualifying Tournament in Bangkok last year.
