Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju facilitates Indian archers

 

 

Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju today interacted with the Indian archers in New Delhi and assured that the government will provide adequate funds for their training ahead.

The Indian archery team returned with three medals including silver and two bronze from the recently concluded World Championship in Den Bosch, The Netherlands.

The trio of Tarundeep Rai, Atanu Das and Pravin Jadhav won the silver medal in the men’s recurve team event and also secured a quota for the 2020 Olympics.

In the women’s events, Jyothi Surekha Vennam produced a stellar show to help the compound team, also featuring Muskan Kirar and Raj Kaur, bag the bronze medal. The 22-year-old then went on to win another bronze in the individual category.

Lauding the archers’ performance at the tournament, Mr Rijiju said, the government is keen on providing funding to enhance the performance of the archers.

The women’s recurve team, although ranked higher than their male counterparts, missed out on securing a quota in the World Championship. They have one more event to seal an Olympic berth.
