April 26, 2021

This is Deepika’s fifth World Cup stage event team Gold Medal. Deepika showed utmost composure to drill a perfect 10 in the final arrow of the shoot-off to put pressure on the 2012 London Olympics Silver Medalist Aida Roman who needed a nine but only to drift away for a poor eight score.
