In the quest for their first World Cup gold medal since 2010, the men’s recurve team, comprising Tarundeep Rai, Atanu Das, and Dhiraj Bommadevara, bounced back from being 0-4 down to level and force a shoot-off. But the team went down 4-5 (54-55, 50-56, 59-58, 56-55, 28-28*) with the Chinese team of Li Zhongyuan, Qi Xiangshuo, and Wei Shahoxu hitting an X in the shoot-off in a dramatic finish.

With a sow beginning, Team India buckled up in the third set to drill in a series of five 10s including three Xs. China then snapped under pressure in the fourth set which India won by a one-point margin.

Back in 2014, India came close to winning the World Cup twice in Stage 2 Medellin and Stage 4 Wroclaw, but on both occasions, they lost. India has so far bagged five gold medals in the men’s recurve team event.
