ARCHERY- Indian men’s recurve archery team comprising Tarundeep Rai, Atanu Das and Pravin Jadhav secured a three-athlete quota for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics after registering a 5-3 win over Canada in the World Championships. The team has now qualified for the quarter-final stage.

"We finally made it. We are gelling well as a team and looking forward to Tokyo now. This is the moment to keep going for 2020," two-time Olympian Rai said.

Meanwhile, the women’s recurve team failed to secure an Olympic berth after losing 2-6 against lower-seeded Belarus. The women's team will have a last chance in 2020 World Cup Stage III in Berlin.
