Indias archery squad for Rio comprises Atanu Das and the womens recurve team of Deepika Kumari, Bombayla Devi and Olympic debutant Laxmirani Majhi.While Das will be competing in the mens individual event -- he qualified via an individual trial in late-June ahead of the more experienced Mangal Singh Champia -- the women will get an opportunity to compete in both the individual and team events in Rio.This will be the first major event in archery where matches will take place under lights. So, world rankings -- such as the Indian womens team being ranked fourth in the world -- could count for little as archers come to terms with unfamiliar conditions. Given that, it would not be a major surprise should the Indian archery contingent come up with their maiden Olympic podium finish in 2016.The teamAtanu Das (mens recurve - individual event)Deepika Kumari (womens recurve - individual and team events)Laxmirani Majhi (womens recurve - individual and team events)Laishram Bombayla Devi (womens recurve - individual and team events)The key dates6-12 AugustHow they got thereMens individual recurve event: Das made the cut for Rio via the Archery Association Indias selection trials, replacing Champia, whod won a quota place by finishing among the top eight at the World Archery Championships in Copenhagen in 2015.Womens individual and recurve team events: They earned three individual berths and a team quota through their performance at the World Championships in Copenhagen in 2015, where they won a team silver.What they sayDeepika Kumari:?When I hear the word Olympics, the first thing that comes to mind is that if you think about it, theres nothing as big in sport as an Olympic medal. Those who have won the medal are considered successful and their lives have changed.L Bombayla Devi:?We have done very well in a lot of international competitions in the run-up to these Olympics. We will try our best to go there and repeat what we have already been doing. In fact, well give it everything to do even better. I am positive about the results well achieve.Laxmirani Manjhi:?Whether it is the individual event or the team event, you have to maintain discipline and your team work has to be perfect. Maybe you dont rely on your team that much when you are in the individual event. But when you are in the team event, teamwork becomes essential.ExtrasIt will be the third consecutive time that L Bombayla Devi would represent India at the Olympics after 2008 and 2012, both in the team as well as the recurve events.Indias track record* Indian archers have participated in every Olympics since 1988.* India has never won a medal in archery at the Olympics.* The women reached the quarterfinals in the team event in 2004 and 2008 -- their best performance to date.* No Indian has reached the quarterfinals in the individual events till now. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Maliek-Collins-Jersey/ .

Latest leaderboard Dubai Desert Classic The Spaniard, whose last victory came in this event in 2012, holed his 10-foot putt at the 18th to close a second successive 67 and break clear of the group including three-time Dubai champion Ernie Els, South Africas Trevor Fisher Jr and last years Race to Dubai runner-up Danny Willett.Cabrera-Bello birdied two of his opening three holes to continue his impressive start to 2016 and recovered from a blemish at the sixth to pick up strokes at the seventh and ninth, reaching the turn in 32. The world No 85, who was second in last weeks Qatar Masters, moved in to a four-way tie for the lead by sinking a birdie putt at the 15th before taking the outright advantage at the par-five last.

You have to control your shots and I managed to do that quite well but there was still a couple occasions where I didnt. I tried hard to make pars and happy with the score. It didnt make it feel any worse, draining a 50-footer on the last.McIlroy birdied his final three holes to salvage his round and finish level-par, as Louis Oosthuizen, the other player in the marquee group, missed the cut after carding two double-bogeys in a two-over 72.Watch the Dubai Desert Classic throughout the week live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf.
