World ARCHERY CHAMPIONSHIP: India’s First Medal – Rajat Chauhan creates history
Rajat Chauhan lost in the finals but created a sort of history by winning a silver medal in the finals of the World Archery Championships in Copenhagen on Saturday the 1 August 2015. He went down fighting to local hero Stephen Hansen of Denmark 143-147 in the compound individual final event. India thus opened their account in the ongoing World Archery Championship where they had never won any individual medal. In 2011 Indian women’s’ team consisting of Deepika Kumari, Chekrovlu Sworo and Lashram Bombayla devi had won a silver medal in the team event.
Rajat, 2014 Asian Games team gold medalist was going neck and neck till the second set when both had scored 29 points each. In the third set Hansen won three perfect tens but Chowhan could manage only 27 points due to two poor shots of 8 and 9. Thus Hansen gained a three-point lead. The Indian rallied well to reduce the gap by one point in fourth set. But Hansen supported by local crowd got another three perfects in the fifth set as against 28 points of Rajat. Hansen wrapped up the issue 147-143 in a fiercely contested individual men’s compound final event.
Indian women’s team will meet Russia in the finals of the same tournament today. They had won against Germany in first round; defeated Columbia in quarter finals and Japan in semifinals on 28th July 2015.
