Archery World Cup: Deepika Kumari Reaches Semis In Recurve Individual Event


Paris: Indian archer Deepika Kumari has reached the women’s recurve individual semi-finals of the World Cup Stage 3 on Wednesday.

The world number three, who had won the World Cup Stage 1 in Guatemala City in April this year, overwhelmed 2012 London Olympics silver medallist Aida Roman of Mexico 6-0.

Deepika reigned supreme with scores of 29, 28 and 28 that included four perfect 10s with two closest to the centre (X) to knock out the veteran Mexican.

The second seed Deepika has another Mexican challenger in sixth seed Ana Vazquez.

Rest of the Indians, including World Cup stage one champion Atanu Das, made early exits as the 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medallist remained the only hope in the individual recurve section.
