Good evening and welcome to our live coverage.

Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Compound Mixed Team Bronze Final, live from Antalya Archery World Cup 2018. 

15:59 (IST)25 MAY 2018

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. India's Divya Dhayal, Muskan Kirar and Jyothi Surekha Vennam will took on archers from Chinese Taipei in this Final. They fought well but failed to clear the final hurdle and lost 228-231. Making it to the Final may still prove to be a boon for the trio as it will give them the much needed confidence for the upcoming Asian Games.

Jyothi Surekha Vennam will be taking centre stage again, but this time in the Compound Mixed Team Bronze Final, alongside Abhishek Verma. The mixed team from India will go up against Belgium in this match. Sarah Prieels and Reginald Kools will be representing Belgium.

Belgium are seeded 13th whereas India are seeded 3rd. India defeated Slovenia in the 2nd round and moved on to the quarters where they faced Netherlands. It was a difficult task to overcome the 6th seed Netherlands, but the Indians were up for it and ultimately won 155-152 in this match. However, they failed to defeat France in the semifinal. The team from France have been on a roll and made huge upsets, defeating 2nd seed USA and 3rd seed India, on their way to the Gold Final. 

Belgium, on the other hand faced Japan in the first round and Turkey in the 2nd. They eased past Japan but it was a surprise to see them win against 4th seed Turkey. Next up they faced Chinese Taipei in the quarterfinal and won 156-155. However, they failed to defeat 1st seed Korea in the semis and hence set their place in the Bronze Final.
