The Indian women's archery team on Sunday upset the mighty South Koreans to win gold in the World Cup Archery at Wroclaw, Poland.

Deepika Kumari, L Bombayla Devi and Rimil Buriuly beat the London Olympic gold winners 219-215. This is their second consecutive World Cup title following their win in Medellin last month where they beat China.

The wins come as welcome relief to the archery world, which has been mired in controversy following the suicide of the promising Pratima Boro.
