Ace Indian archer Jyothi Surekha Vennam made history on Tuesday, as the seasoned athlete touched a world record equalling performance in the compound women’s individual rankings on the inaugural day of the Archery World Cup Stage 1 in Antalya.
Clocking 353 in the first half of 36 arrows, Jyothi finished off elevating her scoring to 360 in the remaining half, summing up a total of 713 points, including 66 shots that were either a 10 or “Bull’s Eye”.
Marking her career best, Joyothi touched the World record of 713- set by Sara Lopez, the Colombian world champion back in 2015, while setting a new Asian record, breaking Korean archer Chaewon So’s 709 set in 2017.
Jyothi’s stellar performance topped her other compatriots at the event- Aditi Goswami, Avneet Kaur, and Sakshi Chaudhary, who secured 15th, 19th and 26th spots with 700, 699, and 694 respectively.
The Indian squad was tied with Mexico for the top spot with 2112, but was able to claim the first position due to more 10s shot compared to Mexico- India shot 79, while Mexico shot 72.
Ojas Deotale returned the best performance in the men’s counterpart, finishing at 19th place with 709. Up next were Rajat Chauhan, Prathamesh Jawkar and Rishabh Yadav who secured 29th, 30th and 38th slots with 706, 706 and 704 respectively.
