Asian Games 2023: The Indian women’s team of Jyothi Surekha Vennam, Aditi Gopichand Swami and Parneet Kaur clinched India’s 19th Gold medal at the Asian Games 2023 as the Indian girls defeated Chinese Taipei in the women’s compound archery final on Thursday, October 5. The Indian team took the Gold medal in a closely fought final at Fuyang Yinhu Sports Centre Final Field as it won by 230-229. This is India’s first medal on October 5 and 82nd overall at the Hangzhou Games.

The Indian girls were tested hard by the Chinese Taipei trio of Yi-Hsuan Chen, I-Jou Huang and Lu-Yun Wang. India were trailing 54-56 after end 1 in the four-end contest. But they brought up the ‘A’ game in the next end to hold a one-point lead at 112-111 after the second end. The contest was tied at 171-171 after the penultimate end but the Indians shot five tens out of their six arrows in the final end, while the Chinese Taipei managed four. Jyothi has now clinched two Gold medals at the ongoing Games as she had earlier won the yellow metal in the mixed team event along with Ojas Deotale.
