Indian archer Atanu Das progressed to the next round of the men's individual archery event after defeating Chinese Taipei's Yu-Cheng Dang in the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics here at Yumenoshima Ranking Field on Thursday.

Atanu Das took the lead in the match, helped by a 10 in his first arrow. Deng replied with an 8-9-9. A similar story unfolded in Set 2 but for Taipei's archer who leveled the match against Das. The next set went to Indian who regained the lead by shooting 9-10-9 to which Dang replied with a very poor 7 in the last arrow.
