The Indian women's compound team reached the final of the Archery World Cup Stage 2 and Deepika Kumari has been seeded fourth after the women's recurve ranking round in Yecheon, South Korea on Wednesday.

The world champion trio of Jyothi Surekha, Parneet Kaur and Aditi Swami, once again proved their mettle by reaching the consecutive final in the World Cup circuit this year.

They registered a comfortable 233-229 victory over the USA in the semifinals to set up a title clash against Turkiye, who knocked out the top-seeded South Korea in their last-four match. The title clash is scheduled for May 25.

The Indian trio got past the seventh-seeded Italian team in the quarterfinals (236-234) after a close high-scoring match. India won the Archery World Cup Stage 1 in Shanghai last month and will be eager to double it up in Yecheon.

On the contrary, the men's compound team of Abhishek Verma, Priyansh and Prathamesh Fuge, failed to impress as they lost their bronze medal match against Australia despite shooting a perfect 30 in the shoot-off.

Earlier, the Indian men's team lost to the top-seeded US men's team in another close match decided on the shoot-off in the semifinals. The men's compound team won the gold medal in the Archery World Stage 1 last month in Shanghai.

Deepika in top 5 after ranking round

Deepika Kumari has been seeded fourth in the women's ranking round after an impressive shooting on the field. She shot a total of 677 and claimed a top-five finish for India in the women's recurve on an otherwise dismal day for India.

The most experienced Indian archer, Tarundeep Rai, continued his good form this year to make another top 10 finish, that too in a highly packed field of men's recurve ranking round which had 129 participants.

Tarun shot 681 to finish in 6th position and toppled his young counterpart Dhiraj for a spot in the mixed team spot.
