India's performance at the 2018 Hyundai Antalya Archery World Cup has been below par this time around, with only the compound women’s team making it to the Gold Finals. The Indian archery contingent have bagged only two medals so far, one silver and one bronze.

The trio of Jyothi Surekha Vennam, Muskan Kirar, and Divya Dhayal brought glory for the country as they won a silver medal in the Women's Compound team category. They were flawless in the entire event but ultimately lost to Chinese Taipei 228-231 in the final match. 

Jyothi Surekha Vennam and Abhishek Verma also made the nation proud by winning a Bronze medal in the Compound Mixed Team category. 

The onus of winning the third medal now lies on Deepika Kumari, Ankita Bhakat, and Promila Daimary who from India's Recurve Women team. Their run has been satisfactory so far. They got a bye in the first round and eased past France in the second round, defeating them 5-3. A tougher challenge awaited the trio in the quarterfinal, as the 5th seed India went up against the 4th seed Russia. However, the trio showed tremendous composure and defeated Russia 5-1. 

A 6-2 defeat to 1st seed Korea in the semifinal meant that India will face 2nd seed Chinese Taipei in the Bronze Final.
