#Rio2016: Bombayla Devi Laishram cruises through to the pre-quarterfinals

Bombayla Laishram, Indian archer

India’s Bombayla Devi Lashiram who was competing in the women’s archery individual round today, had an easy win over Taipei’s Shin-Chia Lin with 6-2 at Rio 2016 Olympics. Bombayla beats world silver medallist and qualified for round 16. It was a game of total domination for the Indian archer who successfully won three sets, when her opponent only won one. With that, Bombayla Devi managed to clinch A spot in the pre-quarts of the women’s individual archery event at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

But before she knocked Shin Chia-Lin out of the game, earlier Devi nailed it against Austria’s Laurence Baldauff in the women’s 1/64 individual elimination event. This news appears to be glorious as after a disappointing all-together Indian team s’ campaign, India finally now have a reason to cheer.
