"I am happy, but at the same time, I have to continue my performance like this. I want to improve that because the upcoming tournament is very, very important to us. I am trying my best to continue learning whatever I can," the official website of World Archery quoted Kumari as saying.

Deepika and Atanu had previously won their first World Cup gold medal as a couple, beating Gabriela Schloesser and Sjef Van Den Berg of the Netherlands 5-3 after a knockdown.
