The women’s compound final at the ongoing Asian Archery Championships will see an all-Indian affair between Jyothi Surekha Vennam and Parneet Kaur who have both secured the berths to the summit clash in Bangkok on Wednesday.
Jyothi earned a close victory over Huang I-Jou, defeating the Chinese Taipei archer 148-145. Parneet, on the other hand, joined her compatriot in the final after securing another close 147-145 win over Kazakhstan’s Lyan Viktoriya.
However, Abhishek Verma lost his men’s compound semifinal outing against Andrey Tyutyun of Kazhakstan, and will now compete against South Korea’s Joo Jaehoon in the bronze medal match.
Meanwhile, the top-ranked Indian compound mixed team consisting of Aditi Swami and Priyansh defeated Adel Zhexenbinova and Andrey Tyutyun of Kazakhstan in the semis to make their way into the final.
After a bye in the first round, the duo defeated Iran 158-151 in the quarterfinals to secure their last four spot. Due to heavy rain and thunderstorms, the semifinal clashes were delayed and following a 157-155 win over the Kazakhi pair, Aditi and Priyansh will now face Kanoknapus Kaewchomphu and Lertruangsilp Nawayut of Thailand in the final.
