Tokyo: India’s ace archer Atanu Das bowed out of men’s individual event after losing to Japan’s Takaharu Furukawa in the 1/8 Eliminations Round at Yumenoshima Park on Saturday.

Furukawa defeated 29-year-old Das by 6-4 in the decider to cruise into the quarterfinals of the men’s individual event.

Furukawa started the match with three consistent 9s while Das replied with 9-8-8 and handed two points to London 2012 silver medallist.

Atanu started the second set with a strong 10 but followed it by two 9s as the Japanese aimed 9-9-10 to share the points. The third round was all about Das as he levelled the match with clinical 10-10-8.

The fourth set went back and forth as both archers shared points and took the match into the decider. The nerves got better of Indian as he aimed a poor 8 on the second arrow which gave Takaharu a golden chance and he did not miss it – as he clinched the match.

Furukawa will now face either China’s Jialun Li or Kazakhstan’s Ilfat Abdullin in quarters.

Earlier on Thursday, Atanu shocked South Korea’s third-seed Jinhyek Oh in a nail-biting finish to make it to the 1/8 Elimination round.
