More than a month after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the Indian archers will return to action at the international stage with the Archery World Championships in Yankton, USA starting Tuesday.

A total of 12 Indian archers - none of whom competed at the Tokyo Olympics, will be seen in action across ten different events during the week-long World Championships.

What is the Indian team for the World Championships?

The Indian team for the World Championships is fairly young, with an average age of 21.16. Only compound archers Jyothi Surekha (25) and Abhishek Verma (32) are aged above 25 in the 12-member squad.

The team also includes three 17-year-old's in Parth Salunkhe, Priya Gurjar and Ridhi Por.

Why are the Tokyo Olympians not competing at the World Championships?

The four archers who represented India at the Tokyo Olympics are not competing at the World Championships in Yankton owing to their poor outing at the national trials. All four of Deepika Kumari, Atanu Das, Pravin Jadhav and Tarundeep Rai performed way below the expectations to miss out on the World Championships squad.
