Kolkata, Feb 18: India clinched three gold, three silver and one bronze medal at the ongoing first Asian Grand Prix Archery tournament in Bangkok today.


According to information received here, the Indian mixed team reigned supreme in both recurve and compound sections to bag two gold medals.

Earlier in the day, powered by a stupendous performance in the compound section, India claimed one gold, three silver and one bronze.

The day belonged to teenage duo of Chittibomma Jignas and national champion Rajat Chauhan as they gave India a top-two finish in the men's compound sections.

Fresh from winning the Senior Nationals in Jamshedpur, Chauhan gave Jignas a tough fight in the final with both being tied 144-144.

Both hit the bull's eye but Jignas' arrow found to be closer to the centre to earn him the gold ahead of Chauhan who made it memorable making the final in his maiden international outing.

India missed a clean sweep narrowly when Ritul Chatterjee bowed to Nguyen Tien Cuong of Vietnam 143-147 in the bronze play-off.

Chauhan put the disappointment of losing the gold in the individual behind, when he partnered Jhano Hansdah to beat the Myanmar duo 151-148 for a gold in the mixed pair.

Both the Indian entries in the women's compound semifinals—Jhano and Gagandeep Kaur—were beaten on way to the final.
