While the girls have finished their campaign, India still has another chance to land a gold in archery.

The men's compound team will soon be in action against the mighty Koreans.

We'll bring you live updates from that match as well.

Stay tuned!
...
So this itself was a historic result for the girls.

They just have to keep being flawless under pressure to get that elusive gold. And some day, they surely will.
...
This is the first time the Indian compound women's archery team wins a silver medal at the Asian Games!

Before this no woman archer from India, recurve or compound, won anything better than a bronze. 
...
This was still a very good effort from Team India.

They defeated the highly fancied Chinese Taipei in the semi-finals to progress to the final. That itself was an excellent result.
...
India has a lot to learn from their own performance. While they need to plug the loopholes, they should get inspired from the Koreans and learn how to peak under pressure.
...
Team Korea didn't start the match well but they kept getting better and better as the match progressed.

That is exactly what champions do and that is why they deserve the gold.
...
But Jyothi Surekha! What a model of consistency and what calmness under pressure!

She was the most experienced and a lot was expected from her. She never ever faltered! Jyothi kept on shooting a 10 throughout the match! Stunning performance from her, even when her teammates started struggling towards the end.
...
India started on a high, with three 10s and grabbed an immediate lead. However, their level dipped as the match progressed. The second half of End 4 was absolutely disappointing as youngsters, Kumari and Muskan couldn't deliver the goods.
...
Korea def India 231-228 to get the gold medal.

India settled for silver medal.

...
India badly needs to keep producing 10s to have a lead.
...
Now India has slipped a bit.

They produce 9, 9 and 10 to go up to 87.

In compound archery, scores get added up, unlike recurve archery.

Sudha Singh won a Silver Women's 3000m Steeplechase. Another Silver was added to India's tally as Neena Varakil won it in Women's Long Jump. However, the standout performer was Neeraj Chopra, who was also India's flag bearer in the opening ceremony of the multi-sport extravaganza, who lived up to expectations and bagged GOLD for India in Men's Javelin Throw.

The Indian Men's Table Tennis Team also scripted history as they entered the Semifinals of the event and thereby secured a Bronze medal. They are set to face Korea in the Semis today. PV Sindhu also made it to a historic final which she will be playing against Tai Tzu Ying today!

1. Quarterfinals: Defeated Indonesia 229-224
2. Semifinals: Defeated Chinese Taipei 225-222 

South Korea's Women's Compound team is one to be feared but the Indian women have also shown tremendous temparament and should be able to give them a run for their money.
