Ruman Sana produced another frustrating display as the world's 15th-ranked archer finished third in individual recurve event of the Bangabandhu National Archery Championships at the Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium in Cox's Bazar yesterday.
Ruman, who finished sixth in the qualification round, could not overcome semfinals hurdle of the national championship another time since winning three gold medals in the 2019 South Asian Games in Nepal.
The 25-year-old archer from Khulna had to be content with a bronze medal as he beat Ashiqur Rahman by 6-4 sets points in the bronze-deciding match.
Ity Khatun, another triple gold medallist from the 2019 SA Games, failed too as the defending champion lost by 6-4 set points in the bronze-deciding match.
In compound events, Mohammad Ashikuzzaman beat Ashim Das by 144-142 points to win bronze medal while Ritu Akter bagged bronze medal beating Bonna Akter 136-135.
