But it didn’t change the eventual outcome as the Indians were ahead by four points going into the fourth and final end.India sealed the contest by scoring yet another 58, which was studded with three 10s and one X.In the battle between world’s top-two ranked nations in the compound mixed team final, USA made a remarkable comeback to win the gold.Jyothi and Priyansh raced to a two-point lead by shooting a near-flawless 39 points out of a maximum 40 in the first end.But they struggled for consistency as Olivia and Sullivan bounced back to shoot 39 to edge the Indians by two points to bring it level (76-76) at the halfway mark.The No. 2 seed USA landed a perfect score of 40 in the third end to snatch a slender one-point advantage as the Indians managed 39.Needing to shoot a perfect 40 to force a shoot-off, Jyothi and Priyansh managed a 38 as the USA pair scored 39 to seal the gold.Indian archers failed to deliver a third medal in the compound category as youngster Prathamesh Fuge lost to World No 1 Mike Schloesser of the Netherlands in a shoot-off of the bronze medal playoff.Fuge, 21, who upset World No. 6 and former world champion Nico Wiener of Austria in the quarters, overcame a two-point deficit to make it 148-148 and force a shoot-off.The former world champion sealed it with a 10 in the tiebreaker to deny the Indian a maiden World Cup individual medal.Fuge earlier lost to world No. 7 James Lutz of the USA 143-148 in the compound men’s individual semifinal.Find us on YouTubeSubscribe
