Deepika kumari : India’s most successful Female Archer to lead Indian Challenge at World Cup kumari : India’s most successful Female Archer to lead Indian Challenge at World Cup

India will start their campaign at Shanghai World Cup Stage 1 from 17th May, 2017. 

Four time runner-up, Deepika Kumari is all set to convert her Silver into Gold this time as she is one of the India’s best bet in the Archery World Cup.

There’s a gap between silver and gold and that’s what I’m figuring out now. I need to identify and understand everything I need to win and not just remain with the silver. I want to win and become a world champion. I really want to,” said Deepika to the interview given at the official website of World Archery.

Deepika, just 22-years old is the most successful Female Archer in Indian History,  in addition to her fours silvers  at the Archery World Cup, She is two times World Junior Champion & Commonwealth Games Champion (Delhi) too.

Deepika failed to lift as per the expectations in Rio Olympics as she finished ninth individually and sixth with the recurve women’s team at her second Olympics.

“After Rio I worked on my physical fitness, improving technical aspects of my archery and doing physiological training as well,” said Deepika. “At the moment, I’m not worried about scoring, my main focus is to develop my confidence, my technique and see what else I can continue learning.

Having finished with second-place for four times, this time Deepika yearns for Gold. The qualification round of Archery World Cup Stage-1 for both Compound & Recurve will get underway from tomorrow morning.

India’s Team :

Men’s Recurve : Atanu Das, Indrachand Swami, Viswash, Dhaniram.

Women’s Recurve : Deepika kumari, Ankita Bhakat, Preeti, Monika Saren.
