Lausanne: World Archery on Thursday conditionally lifted the suspension of the Archery Association of India (AAI) following elections that were held in New Delhi last week.
The AAI had been suspended since August 5, 2019, with Indian athletes only allowed to compete under a neutral flag at events that directly affected their qualification chances for the Olympics. With the uplifting of the suspension, Indian archers will henceforth be allowed to compete in World Archery events under the national flag.
The next international tournament is the Indoor World Series in Las Vegas in three weeks’ time. India currently has three men’s and one women’s quota place at the Tokyo Olympic Games. IANS
