In 24 hours, V Jyothi Surekha took her third silver in the women’s boating event at the 100-acre NFAA Easton Yankton Archery in Yankton, South Dakota, USA on Saturday.
In the singles, which followed the women’s composite and mixed events team on Friday, the gold medalist lost to Colombian Sarah Lopez by just two points 146-144 in the gold medal round. This was also Jyothi’s third encounter with Sara in the World Finals here.
Jyothi played a prominent role in both finals with the team also finishing second against Colombia.
This is her sixth World Cup medal as well as her bronze in the teams and individual categories she won in 2019 with the World Championships at S-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands and the silver on the women’s team at the 2017 edition in Mexico City.
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old Colombian who beat the Indian has added the elusive world title. It was also the first gold in the mixed event and the third gold in the women’s event for the Colombian teams in which Sarah played a pivotal role.
“I’m happy that I made it to the finals in all three areas, but a little disappointed because I couldn’t do my best in the singles,” Jyoti said after her event. “I am happy to improve my medal here from bronze to silver.”

In the return of the event, an Olympic event, Ankita Bhakat is the only Indian entrant remaining in the fight and will face host Casey Kovold in the quarter-finals. Indo-Korean fourth seed Kang Chae-young stunned 6-4 in Friday’s semi-finals.
