However, that it didn’t bog them down a thrilling silver was the way to victory. Incidentally, four years back at the same Asian Games, the women’s compound archery team went home with a bronze. Amidst all this, Andhra girl Vennam Jyothi Surekha has been receiving special mention for her relentless performance. She is one of the three members of the team comprising Muskan Kirar and Madhumita Kumari, and while the performance of the other two wavered, Jyothi’s remained consistent and full of concentration.
Her performance has since been lauded by many including the central government.
Congratulations to our women’s compound archery team of Madhumita Kumari, Muskan Kirar and Jyothi Surekha Vennam for winning the Silver medal in Archery Women’s Compound Team event at #AsianGames2018 .
