Already an Olympian and one of India’s Tokyo-bound archers, Atanu Das will be eager to put his best foot forward both in the individual and team events when he competes at the Tokyo Olympic next year. Greeting from Kolkata and fervent about dancing, music, and itinerant, Atanu Das is a man of many abilities but none on the level of his love for archery.
Atanu Das removed to archery early, when he was as new as 14 years old before touching to the Tata Archery Academy in 2008 and exercise under Korean coach Lim Chae Wong.
He made his international entrance the same year and has not observed back since, catching his first gold medal at the senior level in the Recurve men’s team event at the 34th National Games and silver in the men’s event at the World Youth Championships in 2011.
The Indian archer went from strength to power after his win in the National Games, continuing his excellent form that year by taking gold medals in the Recurve men’s single event as well as Recurve mixed team event and a bronze in the Recurve men’s team event at the 3rd Asian Grand Prix in Dhaka.
He too gained bronze medals in the men’s single event, mixed team event and men’s team event at the 2013 Asian Archery Grand Prix in Thailand. He also took a bronze medal with Deepika Kumari in the World Cup mixed team event prepared in Colombia that year. However, it was the silver medals at the men’s squad event in the 2014 World Cups in Medellin and Wroclaw that thrust him into the attention.
