Team GB's Amy Oliver beats world number one Deepika Kumari in women's archery first round.

Team GB's Amy Oliver has beaten Indian world number one Deepika Kumari in the women's archery first round.

Oliver impressed throughout against her 18-year-old opponent, and despite a blip in the second set, she progressed to the second round with a 6-2 victory.

Oliver made an excellent start to the match as she hit one 10-point shot on the way to winning the first set 27-26.

She also had an opportunity to take the second set when she required a nine on her final arrow, but she was off range with a four as Kumari levelled the match.

However, she responded superbly to take the third set 27-26 as she threatened to cause a huge upset.

The shock was complete in the fourth set as Kumari left Oliver requiring a nine or better with her final arrow and she stepped up to shoot a 10-point shot to secure the surprise win.
