Share

Abhishek Verma focussed on staying happy ahead of the game and did manage for most of the time. But, his team’s defeat in the bronze medal play-off against Italy in the afternoon pulled the trigger for him to win India’s first Gold at the ongoing World Cup.

“My dream has come true,” Abhishek said, after taking the match. “Everybody wants to put in a performance like that, everyone knows they have it in them. Today, it happened.

Abhishek Verma wins Gold

Abhishek Verma shot 13 perfect 10s out of 15

The world number 18 was at his finest in the individual final as he won with a lead of three points, with the score card reading 148-145 in favour of Abhishek Verma. By winning the Gold, Verma also avenged his Incheon Asian Games defeat against Iranian Esmaeil Ebadi.

The Indian didn’t waste any time as he started in top gear, right from the first arrow, shooting perfect 10 in his first three arrows to gain an early lead of two points. Ebadi trailed behind and the margin increased to three after the second round.That left the Iranian with a lot of catching up to do but Abhishek Verma was determined to stay ahead.

Both archers then shot perfect 10s in the third, and Abhishek Verma followed it with another perfect 10 in the fourth round. Now, the catching up was almost impossible, even with perfect 10s unless the Indian faltered.

Which, thankfully, he didn’t.

For right now I will yield to your point but wish in the future you actually connect the dots much better.
