other Updated: Nov 23, 2010 09:58 IST

India's Deepika Kumari kept herself in medal contention by advancing to the quarter-finals of the women's individual archery event but Rimil Buriuly bowed out after losing the second round here today.

Deepika began well by beating Rand Almashhandani of Iraq 5-1 in round one and then pipped Indonesia's Erwina Safitri 7-3 in the next round.

She will next take on Taipei's Tan Ya Ting, who ousted Deepika's compatriot Rimil in second round.

Rimil had started on a winning note as she blanked Zahra Dehghanabnavi 4-0 in her opening round but was outplayed by her Taipei rival 2-6.

Deepika and Rimil had contributed in fetching India a bronze medal in the women's team event along with Dola Banerjee on Sunday.
