Deepika bagged a silver in the recurve category her fourth in five years while Verma settled for the silver in the mens compound discipline on Sunday in Mexico City.
The final was a tough match and I was not able to pull it off. But I am happy I won the silver medal. Last time, I even failed to qualify for the Final (World Cup) due to bad performances punctuated by low confidence. This year, I did well and qualified and I ended up with the fourth silver medal in five years, Deepika told reporters here.
But the former World No.1 archer from Ranchi is not satisfied with just a bronze and wants to win gold at future World Cups. On asked why she has been faltering at the final hurdle, Deepika said the summit clash brings a huge amount of pressure and sometimes luck also eludes her.
But she is confident that with the support of mental trainers, she will be able to overcome that hurdle as she begins her preparations for the 2016 Rio Olympics starting with the Asian Championships.
