Teenage sensation Aditi Gopichand Swami made history as she became the youngest-ever world champion and claimed India’s first-ever individual title at the 2023 Hyundai World Archery Championships with compound women’s gold in Berlin.
The 17-year-old beat Andrea Becerra 149-147 in the showpiece to become a double world champion, having earned compound women’s team gold on Friday.
It continued Swami’s superb year, which also saw her become double youth world champion after winning individual and team gold at the 2023 World Archery Youth Championships in Limerick last month.
The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has congratulated Indian women’s compound team on clinching India’s first-ever Gold medal at the World Archery Championship in Berlin.
In a tweet, the Prime Minister said;
“A proud moment for India as our exceptional compound Women’s Team brings home India’s first-ever gold medal in the World Archery Championship held in Berlin. Congratulations to our champions! Their hard work and dedication have led to this outstanding outcome.”
