India at Olympics: Indian men's archery team loses to Korea 0-6 in quarterfinals


10:36 (IST)26 JUL 2021

That's the end of the road for India in men's team archery. The Koreans have been on the money. They have been excellent with surgical precision, understood the conditions better and have stomped over India in what can be called a one-sided quarterfinal. 

The Indian men's team would take a lot of heart from this performance. These scores, on another day, against another opponent, could have propelled India to the right side of the result, however, against Korea there is nothing much you can do apart from scoring 10s. 

Pravin Jadhav would be the biggest take away from the team and the mixed team event. The Indian archer was always touted to be second, behind Atanu Das, but in his debut Olympics, Pravin Jadhav has risen to the occasion in style. 

The Indian archer takes good long hauls and has been consistent with his performance with an excellent understanding of the field. 

Now it over to the individual performances in archery with the men and Deepika Kumari in action. Can India do better? We will find out in a couple of days time. 

For now, do follow Sportskeeda for an up-to-date coverage on the Tokyo Olympics.
