Indian men’s recurve archery team, consisting of Dhiraj Bommadevara, Tarundeep Rai, and Pravin Jadhav, achieved a landmark victory over reigning Olympic champions South Korea to secure an Archery World Cup gold medal on Sunday, marking India’s first such win in 14 years. This victory represents India’s first-ever triumph over the South Korean powerhouse in a World Cup final and enhances their chances of qualifying for the upcoming Paris Olympics. The trio of Dhiraj, Tarundeep, and Pravin displayed remarkable composure to defeat the strong Korean team without losing a set.

Notably, 40-year-old Tarundeep Rai, a veteran from the Indian Army, was also part of the team that won the gold medal at the Shanghai World Cup Stage 4 in August 2010. Back then, the Indian team, comprising Rahul Banerjee, Tarundeep Rai, and Jayanta Talukdar, defeated Japan.

In the final showdown between the top two seeds of the tournament, India prevailed with a score of 5-1 (57-57, 57-55, 55-53), earning their fifth gold medal in the first stage of this season’s World Cup. This success also extended to the mixed team event, where Ankita Bhakat and Dhiraj Bommadevara defeated Mexico’s Alejandra Valencia and Matias Grande 6-0 (35-31, 38-35, 39-37) to win bronze.

Overall, India has achieved five golds, one silver, and one bronze so far in the tournament. Former world number one Deepika Kumari is also in contention for another medal, as she competes in the women’s recurve individual semifinal later in the day.
