Two Golds for India and England at the Test Event


Archers shot the team finals at the Archery Test Event for the Commonwealth Games today in New Delhi. In the morning, England won the two gold medals at stake in the compound division. As expected, the Indian men and women took the gold in the recurve competition.



 

 
Compound Women
In semifinals, India beat Scotland 221-211. England defeated Malaysia 219-214. In the final for the gold medal, England women’s team scored a perfect 10, 10, 10 to open the match against India, which was not very far behind. India started to creep ahead especially when England dropped points with a 7, 8 and 10 end. However the English women rose to the occasion and on the final end shot 10, 10, 10 again to tie the match. Shooting first in the tie break England again scored 10, 10, 10. The first Indian archer scored an 8 and that was the effective end of the match. The remaining 2 arrows were shot but the result was clear. In the final for bronze, Malaysia took an easy advantage over Scotland, 217-209.
 

 
Recurve Women
The team from Singapore lost ground from the very beginning against India and were never able to recover from their bad arrows. In the other semifinal, Malaysia defeated Wales with the highest margin of the day, 40 points (193 against 153)!

 
In the final for gold, the Indian team comprising Dola BANERJEE, BURUILY and Bombayala Devi LAISHRAM confirmed their domination over the Commonweath. They took the gold over Malaysia, 204-190. The bronze medal went to Singapore.

 
The competition continues tomorrow with the individual semifinals and finals.
