Deepika’s feat lands as another big shot in the arm for Indian sports, which is on the upswing since the turn of the year. Deepika has already qualified for the Rio Olympics in 2016 and has won silver medals for India in the 2012 and 2013 World Cups.
The 21-year-old also won gold in the 2010 Commonwealth games for individual and group. She won a Bronze in the 2010 Asian Games too, which was another group event. Deepika clinched qualification for Rio through her performance at the World Championships in Copenhagen last year.
