they will have a easier round against colombia to get their eye....actually I think this format in team recurve is really ridiculous..... the teams which finish 2,3,4th ( I leave out the incredible koreans ) .....have I believe a decided disadvantage when it comes to the team round ...... the teams in the lower side get an extra round to get their eye in check the day conditions and later in the day get to play the teams ranked 2/3/4 who come in without a chance to get their hand in ............this is a decided handicap to these teams look at the last 2 olympics 

 

koreans (1) - well that cannot change ........................... then in 2012 teams ranked 7th and 5th finished with silver and bronze , then in the 2008 olympics 6th and 12th finished with silver and bronze ...so I am happy in a way we did not get 2 /3/4 as we will not get a chance to get an eye in then 5/6th positions are in the korean half so not a good idea .... we are left with 7th as the ideal position ........lo and behold india is there ........ so by luck they finished well ......

His plea about what ??? There are qualifying tournaments still left..if he wants to compete he can...ask for wild card may be when he tries and loses. At the moment he may not even be the best in Indi

We are seeing very good result in shooting, Armed forces played a big role in creating a poll of good shooters in India. I think Army can easily repeat their shooting success in Equestrian, Canoeing,

I personally was shocked by deepikas meltdown ...a 5 / a Miss .....you cannot do this at this level ...and she is the best of our archers ..... and to do this after leading the three koreans was terrible .......bombayla was incredible and did as well as she could have I believe , again lakshirani has a great reputation but today she was under par hope she can hold it together

I'm happy with the progress. Wish we had Men's team also. Wishes apart, our best hope for a medal is in Women Team. 7th place is very good. If you don't get 2/3, 6/7 or 10/11 are the best. koreans are formidable and are in a different league but obviously not invincible. Someone else can knock them out (just like 2012 men team event). Also, we are also having mental block against China and Taiwan (don't know why). Atanu Das if he continues the form should reach QF with out much ado. We should also not forget Deepika Kumari got a very reasonable draw for her quest. The "missed" arrow should be a huge lesson. Can't afford that in main competition. Good that it happened already. Credits should also be given to Bombayla Devi, she remained in top 16/10 for larger part of the competition. As far as Lakshmi Manji is concerned, probably she is feeling the pressure. She is definitely  a decent archer if not immensely talented.

Archery draw - falls by luck to be very favorable for Indian women 

 

Womens draw as discussed above no koreans till the finals which is good but after that it is left to the players to play with concerted focus ......

 

Deepika our best hope does not face any of the koreans till the semis................. she has the formidable YT Tan of TPE in her quarter and her first big challenge may be ITA sartori in the round of 64 ....................If she holds her nerve together .............she seemed very nervous in the ranking round ...she was in the top 5 in the first half and leading at one point in time ( but a M which means a 0 pulled her down.................. with a shocking 5 ...no top archer does a 5 ...so she just needs to focus her nerves ) 

 

L Majhi faces a relatively unknown SVK archer and if she plays her usual game should win , she will probably face a chinese Qi ( world 23 )  in the next round, should be tight but could progress , then she would face either aida roman silver medalllist london or wu ( world 20 ) ......she can proceed further ...but she will need a miracle to cross Ki Bo bae of korean in the quarters ...still a reasonable draw for someone who has come 43 in the rankings in the qualification 

 

Laishram bombayla has a easier first round against AUT unknown but the next round may be her last as she faces Lin shih chia  ( world no 10 ) from taipei in the round of 32 ...if she survives that she may face MEX world 18 valencia , if she gets past these formidale obstacle she faces Choi korean number 1 in the quarters :facepalm:...I hope she can hold her nerve in the first couple of matches
