ARCHERY

Asia Cup: India bag three gold, one bronze

Indian archers were all on target, bagging three gold and a bronze to open their account at the Asia Cup Leg 2 here on Tuesday.

It all began with Parneet Kaur, Aditi Swami and Saskhi Chaudhary clinching India's first gold medal of the continental meet, defeating Kazakhstan 204-201.

The men's team of Prathamesh Fuge, Rishabh Yadav and Jawkar Samadhan then followed it up with India's second gold when it downed Bangladeshi counterparts 224-218 in a lopsided final.

Samadhan also went on to bag his second medal when he overcame Sergey Khristich of Kazakhstan 147-145 in a tight bronze playoff.

Samadhan's bronze medal gave India a clean sweep in the compound men's individual section where Prathamesh Fuge and Rishabh Yadav will battle for the gold medal on Wednesday.

India bagged a third gold in the compound mixed team event when the duo of Fuge and Parneet Kaur downed Kazakh duo of Adel Zhexenbinova and Khristich 158-151.

On the concluding day on Wednesday, Indian archers are in the hunt for seven gold, two silver and one bronze medal.

Golf - Mane, Sandhu finish tied-7th in Phuket

India's Udayan Mane produced a bogey free seven-under 63, while Yuvraj Sandhu shot four-under 66, as the duo finished tied for the seventh place at the USD 75,000 Laguna Phuket Cup golf tournament on Tuesday.

They were the only two Indians out of the 10, who had teed up to make the cut.

Mane had seven birdies and no bogeys, while Sandhu had six birdies against two bogeys and the Top-10 finish will give them a lot of confidence going forward.

Sarun Sirithon shot five-under 65 and caught up with overnight leader Malaysian Shahriffuddin Ariffin (70) and the two finished at 14-under and went onto a play-off for the title.

Sirithon and Ariffin had pars on the final two holes to finish at -14 and send the Beautiful Thailand Swing event to extra holes.

The Thai had a chance to win in regulation time but couldn't conjure his birdie attempt from just off the green into the cup, which was a relief for Ariffin who had remained alive with another stunning up and down from beyond the final green.

The playoff was on the ninth and that proved lucky for Sirithon.

Tawit Polthai finished solo third a stroke shy of the play-off on -13, while England's Joe Heraty stormed home with a 62 to head a three-way share of fourth place with the Thai duo of Vanchai Luangnitikul and Ekpharit Wu.
