India's ace archer world no. 1 Deepika Kumari's dream of winning an Olympic medal remains unfulfilled as she suffers a 0-6 defeat against Korea's An San in the quarterfinals of the women's individual competition at Tokyo Olympics.
An San started with 10, 10, 10 to win the first set 30-27. She followed up with 9, 10, 7 to win Set 2 by 26-24. In Set 3, she hit 8, 9, and another 9 to win 26-24.
Deepika scores 7, 10, 10 in set 1. In Set 2, Deepika hit 10, 7 another 7. Deepika hit a 7, 8 and 9 is Set 3.
Deepika showcased one of the below-par performances at the Tokyo Olympics, where she hit four 7s out of the nine arrows.
This was Deepika's third campaign at the Olympics, which she entered with a lot of hopes for a medal. Finishing ninth in the individual qualification round assured that she would face the Korean top-seed An San. San went on to win two gold medals this Olympics — one in the women's team event, another in the mixed team. Deepika finishes her campaign at the fifth spot.
