Suma, Sohel bag gold in individual compound events

Archers Suma Biswash and Sohel Rana brought further glory for Bangladesh this morning after both won their individual compound events to clinch gold in the 13th South Asian Games.

Suma beat Sri Lankan opponent by 142-134 points while Sohel beat his Bhutanes counterpart by 137-136 points.

The recently-constructed Rangasala in Pokhara yesterday became the scene of Bangladesh’s most successful day in the history of the South Asian Games, turning into a gold-mine for the country. Bangladesh won seven gold medals yesterday -- the single-best haul for the country, beating the previous best of four golds on a single day from the 2010 edition held in Dhaka.
