Indian women's compound archery team created history at the World Cup Stage 4 in Paris by winning the country's first ever gold medal in the field.

The women's team, the top seed, featuring Jyothi Surekha Vennam, Aditi Gopichand Swami and Parneet Kaur, clinched the yellow medal after defeating Mexico 234-233 in the final. It is India's first gold at the World Cup.

The men's team, seeded fourth, followed it up with another top-of-the-podium finish to fetch the second gold for India at the World Cup. The Indian team comprising Praveen Ojas Deotale, Prathamesh Jawkar and Abhishek Verma defeated USA 236-232 to secure the gold.

Incidentally, this is the first time the Indian women's and men's compound teams secured the gold medals in the same edition of an Archery World Cup since 2006 when the first edition took place.

In women's compound archery, Jyothi won a bronze medal as she defeated Mexico's Sara Lopez in the shoot-off.

With two gold and a bronze medal on Saturday, India has ended its World Cup Stage 4 in Paris with five medals.

Earlier on Thursday, the Indian men’s and women’s recurve teams won bronze medals to open India’s account at the World Cup.

While the men’s archery team, comprising Tokyo Olympian Atanu Das, Dhiraj Bommadevara and Tushar Shelke, defeated Spain 6-2 in the bronze medal match, the women’s team of Bhajan Kaur, Ankita Bhakat and Simranjeet Kaur got the better of Mexico in the shoot-off after scores were tied 4-4 at the end of the fourth set. Both teams missed out on a chance to secure Paris 2024 Olympic berths.

Compound archery is not part of the Olympic roaster.
