Veteran archer Tarundeep Rai and his Army teammate Pravin Jadhav on Thursday returned to the Indian side for the Asian Championships, the continental Olympic qualifiers to be held in Bangkok from November 3-10. Tarundeep Rai and his Army colleague Jadhav were the two new additions to the men’s recurve team that won a silver medal at the Asian Games in Hangzhou, contributing to India’s record haul of nine medals.

The duo returned at the expense of two-time Olympian Atanu Das and Mrinal Chauhan following a five-day selection trial here. Former Olympian Tarundeep Rai, 39, had won a team silver at the World Cup Stage 1 in Antalya in April this year but could not make the cut for the Asian Games.
