    Medellin: Indian women's
    archery team defeated China in the recurve event to claim the gold medal at the Archery World Cup Stage 3 in Medellin, Columbia on Sunday. Led by World No. 3
    Deepika Kumari, India trounced China 201-186 to claim their second medal of this World Cup and their first World Cup Women's team gold since Shanghai 2011.
    Deepika had crashed out of the singles competition at the quarter-final stage but she showed her class by hitting four 10s in tricky conditions to allow India to reclaim the Women's
    Recurve Team gold after a two- year gap. Bombayla Devi Laishram and Rimil Buriuly gave good support to Deepika. China didn't have the best of starts to the final with Cheng Ming failing to register a score and her
    team mates Xu Jing and Cui
    Yuanyuan only scoring 6 and 5 with their first arrows. After that, India needed to keep their nerve, and they did just that.
