The Indian women's compound archery team of Jyoti Surekha Vennam, Muskan Kirar and Raj Kaur opened their account at the ongoing World Championship with a bronze medal. Jyoti shot six perfect 10s out of eight arrows as India ran out 229-226 winners against Turkey in the third-place play-off.

The Indian women's compound archery team put in a spirited performance to fight back from a hesitant start to beat Turkey and bag the bronze medal in the third-place play-off at the ongoing Archery World Championships. The Indian team comprised of Jyoti Surekha Vennam, Muskan Kirar and Raj Kaur came back to ultimately win the tie by a margin of 229-226 against their European opponents. 

"Last time (Mexico City 2017) we won a silver but no regrets. We are happy to finish on the podium this time too. World Championship medal means a lot as it comes after two years," 22-year-old Jyoti who hails from Vijayawada said post the triumph as per PTI sources. 

Jyothi led the fightback for the Indian team as the Asian Games silver medallist bounced back to shoot six perfect 10s out of eight arrows to help the Indians back in the game. The Indian youngster will fight for a second bronze medal when she takes on world number two Yesim Bostan of Turkey later in the day.
