Chinese Taipei needed a perfect 30 in their final three shots but could only manage 29. India secured their second gold medal at the multisport event after Jyothi and Ojas Deotale finished at the top of the podium in the compound mixed team event.

India started the match better and led 28-27 after the first three shots. However, Chinese Taipei came back with a 56-54 lead after the end of the first set of shots and no Indian hit a 10-point shot in the second set. Aditi Swami and Parneet Kaur again scored only nine-points in End 2. This allowed Taipei to move forward.

However, a seven-point shot by Taipei’s archer gave India a 112-111 lead at the halfway mark. Taipei followed with six 10-pointers at the end of the 3rd to complete the loss.

India, on the other hand, managed only five 10s and one nine. Earlier, South Korea won the bronze medal by defeating Indonesia. PV Sindhu’s journey in the continental event ended after a disappointing performance in the women’s singles quarterfinals with a straight games loss to China’s He Bingjiao.

Having won silver and bronze medals in the 2014 and 2018 editions of the Asian Games, Sindhu looked out of rhythm as Bingjiao wasted no time defeating her 16-21, 12-21 in a game that lasted 47 minutes. Notably, Sindhu got the better of her Chinese counterpart to win a bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics, claiming her second medal of the global event and it couldn’t be better for Bingjiao as she got her revenge on home soil.
