Wroclaw (Poland): Abhishek Verma gave India a perfect Independence Day gift by clinching the gold medal in the compound men’s individual section to open their account in the Archery World Cup Stage 3 here on Saturday.
Having failed as a team in the bronze play-off earlier in the day, the world number 18 was at his best in the individual final as he held on to his lead to wrap up the issue 148-145 against Esmaeil Ebadi of Iran.
The Asian Games silver medallist thus avenged his defeat to Ebadi at the Incheon 2014 in style.
