India's Atanu Das clinched a bronze in the men's recurve individual event of the Asian Archery Championships, in Bangkok, on Tuesday.


Das, competing as a neutral athlete under the World Archery flag due to the suspension of the Indian federation, beat Jin Hayek Oh of Korea 6-5 in the shoot-off match for the bronze medal.

He had also won a bronze in the recurve mixed team event with Deepika Kumari on Monday.

The compound mixed team of Abhishek Verma and Jyothi Surekha Vennam will clash against the Chinese Taipei pair in the final on Wednesday.
