After delayed flights, no show in Stage I and medal drought through out, Indian archers finally managed to get on the medal tally in Stage III. The men's compound team comprising of Rajat Chauhan, Abhishek Verma and Aman Saini clinched a bronze medal in the third stage of the Archery World Cup in Bangkok on Sunday. With the score of 235-230 in their favour, the Indian trio beat a higher seeded Russian team of Anton Bulaev, Alexander Dambaev and Pavel Krylov in the bronze-medal play-off. The women's team also had a shot at winning the bronze medal, but the team of Jyoti Surekha Vennam, Muskan Kirar and Swati Dundhwal missed out by two points. The trio lost to Great Britain's Layla Annison, Ella Gibson and Lucy Mason 226-228. The medal drought continued for Indian archers in the recurve events, as they finished without a single medal. This stage of the World Cup was the last meet before the World Championships in the Netherlands, which is an Olympics qualifying event.
