Deepika will compete for an individual medal on Friday. But on the eve of her event, she was the only voice of support for her husband and teammate. Every time Das got closer to the bullseye, she would exclaim, “Good shot!” “Confidence! When Jin-hyek tried to wrest control from her, she screamed.

“I was hearing her full time. She was pushing me up: ‘believe in myself’, ‘you can do it’, ‘just stay calm and handle the situation’. I am privileged to have my wife in this competition. She is a great support and motivation for me, so I really did my best in the match today,” Atanu Das, who married Deepika last July, said. “(At the Olympic Village) I stay with the men’s team, she is staying with the women’s team (but) most of the time we are together.”

Atanu Das- A Great Player

The wind blew from left to right, with a strong downrange component. Das held his bow for a long time, swayed a little, and released the arrow under pressure, shooting second against a legend of the sport. “It was a tense situation,” he admitted. “It’s either win or lose.”

He was victorious. The arrow landed in the target’s centre, indicating a ten. Jin-hyek was out-nerved by Atanu Das. “While it may appear to be an excuse, it is quite different from what it appears to be in a gust of wind,” Jin-hyek said. “Atanu is a great player. I wasn’t any better than he was.”

Das, on the other hand, is just getting started in the competition. He reached the same stage in Rio, and to advance this time, he must first defeat Takaharu Furukawa of Japan when the competition resumes on Saturday.
