As a woman, she won gold in the individual, team, and mixed pairs recurve events.
Having won three gold medals at Stage 3 of the World Cup, Indian archer Deepika Kumari regained the number one position in the global rankings on Monday.
The 27-year-old Ranchi native, who had achieved the top spot for the first time in 2012, won gold medals in three recurve events – women’s individual, team, and mixed pair – on Sunday.
World Archery tweeted soon after Deepika’s gold rush, “This will put her at the top of the world rankings on Monday.”.
The women’s recurve team gold was won by Deepika and her teammates Ankita Bhakat and Komalika Bari, who defeated Mexico comfortably.
In the gold medal match, she paired up with husband Atanu Das and the couple overcame a 0-2 deficit to defeat the Netherlands’ Sjef van den Berg and Gabriela Schloesser 5-3.
Her fourth individual World Cup gold came in the recurve women’s section when Ranchi nipped out Russia’s 17th-ranked Elena Osipova 6-0.
Her medal count in the World Cup includes nine golds, 12 silvers, and seven bronzes.
The win is Deepika’s first gold, silver, and bronze medals in the same World Cup. She is excited, but is also aware that there are other major competitive events on the horizon.
