    Das-Ankita fight back to oust Malaysia; Indian archers make quarters in four events

    The Indian recurve mixed pair archery duo of Atanu Das and Ankita Bhakat showed tenacity to defeat Malayasia in a three-setter and sail into quarterfinals at the Asian Games here on Monday.

    Indian archers stormed into last-eight in three team events -- recurve mixed, compound mixed, compound men's team -- when the elimination round got underway at the Fuyang Yinhu Sports Centre here.

    As of now, India are in medal contention in four events with the top-seeded women's team compound archers getting a bye into the quarters.

    Fifth seeded Indian duo of Das and Ankita rallied to beat Malaysian team of Syaqiera Binti Mashayikh, Muhamad Zarif Syahir Bin Zolkepeli 6-2 (39-38, 37-36, 39-33).

    The Malaysia duo enjoyed a 2-0 lead with three 10s including one X in the first set.

    But the experienced Indian duo bounced back with two 10s and went on to level as the Malaysians crumbled under pressure.

    The Malaysians hit the red-ring (8) once and went on to lose the second by a slender one-point margin.

    Panghal seeks new start for Indian wrestling

    Indian wrestler Antim Panghal begins her campaign for a medal at the Asian Games in Hangzhou this week hoping it will mark a fresh start for a sport mired in a sexual harassment scandal back home.

    Three top wrestlers accused Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh of sexual misconduct in January and launched protests demanding his resignation

    Images of star athletes being detained as they tried to march to parliament in May went viral on social media.

    The wrestling begins in Hangzhou on Wednesday with two-time under-20 world champion Panghal among the favourites.

    "I hope to put the controversies behind me and win a gold for my country," the 19-year-old told AFP before leaving for Hangzhou.

    Two weeks ago she beat the world champion and a two-time European champion on her way to bronze at the World Wrestling Championships in Belgrade.
