Tokyo Olympics Archery: Atanu Das led Indian trio beaten 6-0 by Korea, knocked out in quarterfinals of the Men’s Team event

Tokyo Olympics Archery- India vs KOREA in Quarterfinals: The Indian trio of Pravin Jadhav, Atanu Das, and Tarundeep Rai failed to rise to the tough challenge against South Korea in the quarter-final of the men’s archery team event here at the Yumenoshima Ranking Field on Monday.

The South Korean team comprising of Kim Je Deok, Kim Woojin, and Oh Jinhyek defeated the Indian team 6-0 to reach the semis. The Koreans put immense pressure on India from the first arrow as they shot 10-10-9 for a 29 and India responded with 8-10-10. Korea then proceeded to shoot 10-10-10 to capture 2 points.

In the second set, India responded well as they started with 9-10-10 and 10-10 but an 8 from Das on the last arrow handed another 2 points to the Koreans. The Koreans gathered two 59s in two sets.

The Koreans kept their cool and captured the third set with ease as they scored 56 even though they did hit the first 8 of the game. But in the end, it was enough as the Indian trio had filled their sheet with 8s and 9s and lacked consistency.

Earlier, the Indian team had defeated the Kazakhstani team of Abdullin Ilfat, Gankin Denis, and Mussayev Sanzhar 6-2 to reach the quarters

They advance to the semi-finals of the men’s team shooting event.

Tokyo Olympics Archery LIVE: Atanu Das led India Men’s Team to face Kazakhstan in opening round @ 6 AM: Follow LIVE Updates

Tokyo Olympics Archery LIVE – India vs Kazakhstan LIVE: India’s top-ranked male archer, Atanu Das, finished a disappointing 35th in the Men’s Ranking Round, while Pravin Dubey finished four spots ahead at 31. Tarundeep Rai after a wobbly start made a strong finish at 37.

India is seeded ninth in the event.

Jadhav would be taking the field two days after the quarterfinal defeat in the mixed pair competition, along with Deepika Kumari.

Maintaining consistency would be the key for Jadhav while Das and Rai would look to step up the momentum.

“He is a calm and composed shooter but lacks experience. Hopefully, his mixed team exposure would put him in good stead,” India chief coach Mim Bahadur Gurung was quoted by PTI.

If they get past the first-round hurdle, the men’s trio will face top seed Korea who has got a bye into the last-eight.

Tokyo Olympics Archery LIVE – India vs Kazakhstan LIVE: The individual elimination round for the Indians will begin on Thursday as ace archer Deepika Kumari would look for redemption.
Deepika and Jadhav had failed to live up to the hyped build-up to the Olympics, making a quarterfinal exit in the mixed pair competition on Saturday, an event considered their stronghold.

Many saw the loss against an ordinary-looking Korea as a tactical blunder after the Indian think-tank broke up husband-wife pair of Das and Deepika, who were coming off after winning a World Cup gold medal in Paris less than a month ago. Olympic debutant Jadhav was preferred ahead of Das on the basis of his ranking round score. Jadhav and Deepika shot together for the first time ever, that too at the biggest stage of the Olympics.

Deepika herself sounded upset and was visibly down, failing to hit a single 10 to lose an easy match against Korea who fielded a young team with a combined age of 37. Deepika will have a tricky first round opponent in Bhutan’s flag bearer Karma who made the cut during 2019 Asian continental qualification to become the first-ever athlete from her country to get an Olympic quota in any sport.

Karma, who is ranked a lowly 193 in the world, secured 56th place in the ranking round. If she overcomes the first-round hurdle, Deepika is likely to face the biggest challenge of the individual round in the form of Korean An San who topped the ranking round, breaking a 25-year-old Olympic record.

The 20-year-old Korean had defeated Deepika at the same venue two years ago, in the final of the ‘Tokyo 2020 Test Event’.
