Earlier, on the same final day of the event (5 August), Deotale first defeated another Polish Przemysław Konecki (148-144) in the quarterfinal, and later, he secured the country’s one podium position by winning the semi-final against the Dutch Mike Schloesser (149-148).

Deotale became the first Indian man to win a gold medal in the World Archery Championships history.

Before Deotale’s historic gold medal, the 17-year-old Aditi Gopichand Swami won the gold medal in the women’s individual compound event on the same Saturday (5 August). It wasn’t only India’s first gold medal in an individual event in the World Archery Championships history, but Aditi also became the youngest to win the gold medal in an individual event in the history of the competition.
