Incheon:

India's Trisha Deb won her second bronze medal of the day by beating Chinese Taipei's Joun Huang in the women's compound archery individual event of the 17th Asian Games at the Gyeyang Asiad Archery Field here Saturday. (Day 8 Blog)

Trisha, who earlier in the day won bronze in the team compound event, defeated Jou Huang 138-134, to add another medal to her kitty.

The Indian archer, though, will count herself lucky after Huang made a huge blunder in the end to surrender the match.

The Taipei archer was in commanding lead and had the bronze medal sewn up but a zero score in her penultimate shot cost her the podium finish.

Trisha kept her nerves to record a final end score of 25 to finish four points ahead of her opponent.
