With no archers in the individual and mixed team events in Recurve and Compound, India's hopes of a medal in Archery look bleak. Now India's only hopes of a medal from Archery rest in the Men's and Women's Team Compound event, which takes place on Sunday (August 26). While the Men are in the round of 16, the women are already through to the quarter-final. Join us again for that, until then, goodbye.

South Korea just need 27 to seal the third set.

Jagdish starts with a 10 and Viswash follows that with one more. India need a perfect finish here from Atanu.

But someone seems to have forgotten to tell the South Koreans that as they hit two 10s in a row and are looking like they are in a hurry to get this done.
...
Courtesy of that wild shot, India finish with just 25 from the first three shoots. India must now hope South Korea are less than perfect.

It is South Korea who start first.
...
And we are about to get underway in the quarter-finals. Both India and South Korea are ready.
