KOLKATA, June 14 (PTI): Rajat Chauhan bagged a silver in the compound individual section after going down to Korean Yong Choi at the Archery World Cup Stage III in Antalya, Greece today.

It was India�s second medal of the day after they opened their account with a bronze in the women�s compound team event with the trio of Trisha Deb, Lily Chanu Paonam and Purvasha Shende got the better of higher-ranked Mexicans.
The 11th ranked Indian trio shot 226, while Mexico�s Brenda Merino, Linda Ochoa and Katya Sofia managed 224 to go down by a margin of two points.
Both the teams shot 57 each in the opening end but India took a two-point lead shooting two perfect 10s in the next.
Mexico had four 10s in the third end as against two by India to narrow the lead to a slender one-point.
In the decider, the Indians held their nerves firing in four 10s and two 9s to clinch the issue.
