Dola Banerjee lends helping hand to Indian archers

first_imgShe is one of the best archers India has produced and the current Indian team looks up to her, and Dola Banerjee is also doing her bit to help the country win its first Olympic medal in the sport.Dola, who was part of the gold medal winning team at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, and the archers training at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) Eastern Centre waste no opportunity in benefiting from the expertise and experience of the two-time Olympian.She is not part of the team going to London, but one would never know that by the way she interacts with the other archers at the camp.It helps that Deepika Kumari and Bombayla Devi have been on the same team with her, while the men’s team going to the London Olympics includes her brother, Rahul Banerjee.”Both the teams are very good and capable of winning medals, though one cannot put a number. I could not get an Olympic medal, but if the current lot can be successful I will be very proud,” Dola told Mail Today. “I also train here and try to help them in whatever way I can.”Bombayla and Tarundeep (Rai) have prior Olympic experience, but also the others are very confident. If they score like the way they are doing now, they will definitely be in the medal contention, though in archery a lot depends on one’s performance on the day.”One aspect in which Dola can help the first-time Olympians, such as Deepika Kumari, is in dealing with the pressure they will face in London.advertisement”They have competed at various world cups, world championships, Asiad and Commonwealth Games. But the huge crowds, noise and pressure are at a different level,” she said.last_img read more
