India’s Komalika Bari, Sakshi Chaudhary, Priya Gurjar reach finals

India’s young archers Komalika Bari, Sakshi Chaudhary and Priya Gurjar reached the finals of their respective events at the World Archery Youth Championships in Wroclaw, Poland.

The 19-year-old Bari, already a part of the senior set-up consistently, is a former Under-18 champion (Madrid 2019) and will look to add the Under-21 crown on Sunday. Bari can hope to emulate her senior teammate and become the second recurve woman from India to hold the under-18 and the under-21 world titles in back-to-back editions, a feat that was completed by Deepika Kumari 10 years back.

No other junior recurve archer is in medal contention.
