By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Sept 4 (PTI): On a highly successful day for India, the trio of Jayanta Talukdar, Tarundeep Rai and Rahul Banerjee clinched gold before Deepika Kumari settled for a silver medal at the Archery World Cup Stage IV in Shanghai today.

It was double delight for Talukdar as he later came from behind to beat Athens Olympic champion Marco Galiazzo to win bronze in men�s individual recurve. The Indian men�s recurve team beat Japan�s combination of Ryota Amano, Takaharu Furukawa, Hidekl Kikuchi 224-220 to finish on top.

Deepika, playing her maiden senior final, though had to be content with a sliver as she lost the summit clash 27-29, 27-27, 28-28, 27-30 to Korea�s Bo Bae Ki. Talukdar came from behind to beat the Italian 28-29, 30-26, 28-28, 29-27, 28-27. The win was Talukdar�s third over Galiazzo in four meetings.

With their victories, Deepika and Talukdar have qualified for the Edinburgh World Cup finals on September 18 and 19.

Deepkia is the second Indian woman after Dola Banerjee to make it to the final.

Talukdar joins Brady Ellison (USA), Galiazzo, Im Dong-Hyun, Kim Woojin (Korea), Michele Frangilli (Italy) and Simon Terry (Great Britain) in the finals.

Deepika has been grouped with Bo Bae Kim, Yun-Ok-Hee (Korea), Guo Faping (China), Victoriya Koval (Ukraine), Elena Kuznetsova (Belarus) and Justyna Mospinek (Poland).
