Bangladesh’s top archer Md Ruman Shana made history as he became the first Bangladeshi to win a medal in World Archery Championship.

Ruman, who has struck a rich vein of form, bagged the bronze medal after beating Italian archer Mauro Nespoli convincingly by 7-1 sets during the recurve men bronze final in Netherlands yesterday.

Ruman, who qualified for Tokyo 2020 Olympics earlier for being among the top four, cruised to win the first set with 28-27 points and clinched the second set with 29-28. The third set ended in a stalemate 29-29 before Ruman won the fourth set 29-27 points to seal the historic victory.

Ruman’s form has been evident throughout this year as he won the silver medal in the Asian Cup Stage 1 in Thailand earlier in May.

Ruman had to beat some of the most renowned archers to achieve the latest feat of becoming only the second Bangladeshi to qualify for the Olympics (Tokyo2022) after golfer Siddikur Rahman did so during the Rio Olympics 2016. His bronze final opponent Nespoli won gold at the 2012 Olympics.

Ruman reached the semifinals of the recurve individual event after beating South Korean and Dutch Olympians Kim Woojin and Sjef Van Den Berg, respectively. Kim won gold in the recurve team event in Rio Olympics 2016 while Berg made a fourth-place finish in the individual event in Rio.
