The Indian Women’s Recurve team on Wednesday booked three Olympic quota places by defeating France 216-213 in the team event round one of the World Archery Championship at Turin, Italy.

The Indian trio, comprising Laishram Bombayla DeviDeepika Kumari and Chekrovolu Swuro has represented India at the highest level and are a potential medal hopes for India in the 2012 London Olympic.

Meanwhile the Men’s team of Rahul Banerjee, Tarundeep Rai and Jayanta Talukdar failed to book their clear Olympic quota after going down by a solitary point to China with 215-216 points.

However the men’s team still has a chance to make it to London because Great Britain team finish in the top three and they being the host have already qualified through the host quota. So the men’s team will be involved in a shoot off with other countries to grasp the available slot.

World champions Korea, China and Ukraine assured themselves of six quota places (men three and women three).

Italy, France, the US and Mexico made it to London from the men’s section. Georgia, India, Denmark, Chinese Taipei and Russia qualified from the women’s side.
