Another feather has been added to the flock of India. Just 9 days short of turning 3 year, Dolly Shivani Cherukuri has set national record in Archery at The Volga Archery Academy in Vijayawada some 250kms south-east of Hyderabad.
Dolly was who is a surrogate child born after the tragic death of her older brother in an accident in 2010, who was an international archer and coach. The parents of Dolly also lost their eldest daughter back in 2004. But now the proud parents are escalating with happiness, since their merely 2-year-old daughter has made wonder and have set a new national record today.
The little toddler has become the first Indian to become the youngest Indian to score 200 points over five and seven-metre distances.
“She has become the youngest in the country to achieve the feat, It’s a record which will be difficult to break.” said Biswaroop Roy Chowdhury of the India Book of Records.
In the image you can see, Dolly who fired 72 arrows in all in 24 attempts over the 5-metre and 7-metre distances.
Seems like that the girl was taught archery in the womb. Another great archer legend in preparation.
