Though highly hopeful of winning an Olympic medal, world No 1 archer Deepika Kumari on Saturday said being at the top of the rankings does not guarantee a podium finish at the London Games

“Being the world No 1 is an added pressure and it does not guarantee a medal unless I and all the team members perform well.

However, our preparation has been good and we hope to make the country proud,” said Deepika.

The women’s team of Deepika, Laishram Bombayla Devi and Chekrovolu Swuro and the men’s team comprising Rahul Banerjee, Jayanta Talukdar and Tarundeep Rai leave for the London games on Sunday.
