India’s Vivek Chikara registered a 7-1 win over China’s Sijun Wangas to clinch the gold medal in the men's recurve open event at the Asian Para Archery Championships in Bangkok on Thursday. The team of Shyam Sundar Swami and Jyoti Baliyan won the silver medal in the Compound Mixed Team Open event.

India’s Vivek Chikara produced a stupendous performance to register a 7-1 win over China’s Sijun Wangas to clinch the gold medal in the men's recurve open event in the archery range at the Sports Authority of Thailand grounds at the Asian Para Archery Championships in Bangkok on Thursday. 

Sports Minister took to Twitter to congratulate Chikara on his triumph, “A superb performance from Vivek Chikara as he wins the gold medal in men’s recurve open event at the Asian Para Archery Championships after a 7-1 win over China’s Sijun Wang. @KirenRijiju congratulates him on the win.”

29-year-old Chikara, earlier, beat Park Jun-Beom of South Korea 7-3 to set up a final with Wang. 

There are ten quota places up for grabs in the tournament for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, including one quota spot each in the W1 men's and women's contest, two quotas each in the men's and women's recurve events and two each in the compound men's and women's events.

However, Chikara has already qualified for the 2020 Paralympics after finishing joint ninth in the recurve men's open section at the World Para Championships in Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, earlier this year. 

Meanwhile, the team of Shyam Sundar Swami and Jyoti Baliyan won the silver medal in the Compound Mixed Team Open event as they lost 144-152 to China in the final.
