who has a personal best of 50. “Results started to show within six months, Experts say Lavanya needs to improve her mental strength. “At the 2012 senior nationals held in Chennai both Deepika and Lavanya were part of the Steel Sports Promotion Board team Deepika had some harsh words to say to Lavanya after she was seen to be taking it easy Lavanya not only cried that day she did it again while narrating the incident to me She has to get over these little irritants but she is young she will get better” Guia says Those ready tears have paved the way for resolute intent “Discipline is her biggest strength I have not known her to indulge in tomfoolery She respects her seniors and coaches and that is why I think she has a great future” coach Guia says Indeed for the girl whose professional career was threatened by prospects of marriage she has built herself a promising future While leaving India’s superstar archer Deepika in her wake Madhu Vaidwan From Baghpat to Beijing Distress and misfortune have sneaked up from behind on Madhu Vaidwan a fair few times in her young life of 17 years The last such setback was last year when the archer had been all excited about a new recurve bow given to her by Punjab University A few months later she was to suffer a freak injury breaking her foot playing football at the University campus and was bed-ridden for two months Once she recovered Madhu had to prepare for her final exams — a further few months away from the sport “It was a tackle from behind” Madhu recalls “I don’t know why I was playing that day But I had to stay away Only recently I’ve started to shoot again” she says It’s a wonder then that a year since that setback everyone is queuing up at her front door eager to sign up archery’s prodigious talent for their academies across the country The Tata Archery Academy (TAA) officials who had earlier turned down the skinny 14-year-old youngster three years ago now want her on board TAA chief coach Dharmendra Tiwary who has mentored almost all big names in Indian archery — Deepika Kumari Dola Banerjee Jayanta Talukdar — has already invited her for the next trials of TAA while the current chief national coach Lim Chae-Woon has shortlisted Madhu as part of three young girls picked for specialised training to increase competition Madhu is one of the brightest among the new crop of archers to have done well recently and alongside Lavanya has suddenly expanded the talent pool of the women’s recurve team which had worn the same jaded look these last two-three years But the girl who only seriously started to shoot the recurve discipline last year has already caught the eye of several archery scouts Riding on raw talent she’d bagged the bronze medal at the ranking meet and won her spot in the Indian team without any specialised external help “I was shooting well during the first national ranking tournament as well but somehow the results weren’t showing” she recalls Scores that had won her the junior gold in the first tournament weren’t good enough to beat the established names in the senior category where she finished a lowly 13th EARLY DAYS On the junior circuit Madhu was already an established name Earlier this year she became the sub-junior national champion and also won the national junior gold But the result that got her noticed was her performance during the Senior Nationals at Chennai in December last year where she finished overall fourth in the individual category The needless football injury though had almost forced her to quit Youngest among six sisters Madhu had started shooting in Baghpat’s Vaidwan academy under coach Barju Singh Having lost their mother early all the sisters closed ranks around the youngest sibling – 15-year-old brother Sukhdev and father Bhrampal Singh who retired as supervisor from Delhi Transport Corporation in 2004 while allowing Madhu to continue her career The eldest sisters Anu and Neeraj — would drop in at home from time to time taking the pressure off Madhu Shifting to Punjab University at Patiala last season and training under Jiwanjot Singh Madhu was accustomed to shooting with an Indian bow and the flaws in her technique continue to thwart her progress The Korean Lim’s been trying to correct her shooting posture as well as her hooking — the technique to release the string “I lean slightly on my back so that is one area where we have been working Also I don’t use my index finger as well as I should while releasing the string” she says ANXIOUS TIMES The technique tweaks aren’t the only headaches — those flaws surfacing at crucial times to drag her down While the injury lay-off is history the BA 1st year student is facing some anxious times ahead Having applied for a passport only recently and with only 18 days left for the World Cup to begin in Beijing she is yet to apply for a visa “I hope to get the passport in my hands soon and rest will follow” she says There are a quite few concerns for the girl from Dhanoura Sikri in Baghpat even after her travel logistics are sorted Having never traveled abroad — the Beijing tournament will be her first competition outside India Eating out will be another major worry for the staunch vegetarian “It will be a strange experience for me when I travel But I’ll adjust As for food I will carry something from here to eat because I don’t think I’ll be able to eat outside Think I’ll carry some food items from here” Madhu says a tad wary of something else sneaking up on her plate should she sample local fare out there For all the
