India secure a historic medal in Lawn Bowls

The Indian women’s fours team of Lovely Choubey (lead), Pinki (second), Nayanmoni Saikia (third) and Rupa Rani Tirkey (skip) beat New Zealand 16-13 in the Lawn Bowls semifinal on Monday, ensuring a first ever medal for the country in this sport.

It was a great comeback for the team from trailing 1-6 at the start of the match.

This win is a huge upset as India, who have never won a major international medal in this sport, beat New Zealand, one of the most successful Lawn Bowls teams in the world.
