Sports News : Olympic-bound archers get inoculated ahead of Tokyo Summer Games

Tokyo-bound recurve archers along with Olympic hopefuls had got their first vaccine of Covishield, and the archers will receive their second dose of Covishield on April 7 before flying out for the World Cup Stage I in Guatemala City which starts on April 19. The vaccination process is being taken care of by the Indian Army as the national camp is underway at the Army Sports Institute in Pune. So far the men’s trio of Atanu Das, Tarundeep Rai and Pravin Jadhav and Deepika Kumari have qualified for Tokyo. But the Archery Association of India (AAI) is confident that the women’s team will qualify at the Final Qualification Tournament in Paris. Also, when it comes to senior nationals, then the event is still in doubt amid the rising number of coronavirus cases in the country. Senior nationals were earlier supposed to be held in Chittaranjan in West Bengal in April after the Railways agreed to organize the event but due to elections in the state, it would not have been possible.
