In the mixed section, Atanu Das and Deepika Kumari will be in action together for the first time after their marriage last year. “We’re a couple you know and then we’d be the first couple to play in the Olympics. So it’s fun,” said Das.
Indian recurve archers had a blazing start on their return to the World Cup after nearly two years as the women’s team topped the qualifications with Ankita Bhakat and Deepika Kumari’s super show in the opening stage here.
“Mixed team, you know, I like very much. If I get to play with Deepika then it’s awesome. We’re a couple you know and then we’d be the first couple to play in the Olympics. So it’s fun,” Das, who last won a mixed pair bronze with Deepika at the Asian Championships, told PTI.
