Indian ace archer Deepika Kumari has been left out of the squad.
The Archery World Cup 2023 is all set to begin with stage 1 being organized in Antalya, Turkey. Over 390 archers from 52 nations will be participating in the first stage of the World Cup which will kick off on April 18 and run until April 23, 2023. The archers who will win the individual compound and recurve events will book their spots in the final of the Archery World Cup 2023.
There will be a total of four World Cup stages before the final event scheduled in September in Hermosillo, Mexico on September 9 and 10, 2023. The second stage of the World Cup will be held in Shanghai, China on May 16 to May 21, followed by the third stage from June 13 to June 18 in Medellin, Colombia. The fourth and final Archery World Cup 2023 stage is slated to be held between August 15 and August 20, 2023, in Paris, France before the grand final.
The top archers can qualify for the grand final by either winning a stage or accumulating enough ranking points with regularly strong finishes. The four individual winners in the final are crowned Hyundai Archery World Cup Champions.
As a result, the Hyundai Archery World Cup (known for sponsorship reasons) is the sport’s yearly worldwide elite competition tour for athletes representing their nations. In 2023, the circuit has the greatest prize fund, amounting to more than 400,000 CHF.
India at Archery World Cup 2023 Stage 1
India has sent a 16-member contingent to Stage 1 of Archery World Cup 2023 which will be led by the likes of three-time Olympian Tarundeep Rai, former World No.9 Atanu Das in recurve, and the 2022 Paris stage silver-medalist Jyothi Surekha Vennam in compound archery. The top names to miss out on this competition are former World No.1 Deepika Kumari and multiple Asian Games medalist Abhishek Verma.
The Indian line-up is full of fresh faces and it would be interesting to see how these youngsters fare in this challenging environment comprising many world-class archers. The squad was chosen on the basis of the double-phased selection trials conducted in Sonepat, Haryana. In the compound event, Prathamesh Jawkar and Avneet Kaur topped the rounds in the men’s and women’s events respectively to book their places in the World Cup squad.
