Sheetal Devi, the World Champion and gold medalist at the Para Asian Games, achieved a historic milestone by becoming the inaugural Indian archer to secure the World Archery Awards on Friday. Hailing from Jammu and Kashmir, the 16-year-old sensation clinched the title of the best female para-archer of the year in recognition of her outstanding performances at the Para Archery World Championships and Asian Para Games held in Hangzhou, China. The winners in various categories were determined through a weighted voting process that included input from the public, institutions, and the press. Voting, which commenced in mid-November and spanned a month, saw a substantial participation with over 750,000 votes cast.
