Archery

India started participating in Archery since 1988, Seoul Olympics. Ever since the Indian archery contingent has been growing in size with as many as 10 players going to London 2012. However, Indians haven’t been able to notch up any medal in Archery.

This year India is sending just 4 archers to Rio Olympics. However, 22 year old Deepika Kumari is a real medal prospect in both the Women’s Individual event and Team event.
