India women's recurve team, led by Deepika Kumari, clinched the gold medal by defeating Mexico 6-0 while, the men's recurve team settled for silver in the final Archery World Cup Stage IV in Wroclaw, Poland on Sunday.

India defeated Mexico without yielding a single set point in a clean sweep to clinch the recurve women's gold medal.

"The match wasn't too difficult," said Deepika. "Hopefully we can do the same at the Asian Games."

India returned with five medals with the largest contribution from star archer Deepika Kumari, who won three medals. She bagged a bronze medal each in the women's individual event and mixed team pair event with Jayanta Talukdar.

"This event has already raised our confidence. We have had a difficult season, but the hard work we've put in ahead of the Incheon [Asian Games] is starting to pay off," Deepika said.

The 17th Asian Games are scheduled to be held from 19 September to 4 October in Incheon, South Korea.

In the bronze-medal match, China got past Georgia to take third.

In the men's section, the recurve team of Tarundeep Rai, Jayanta Talukdar and Atanu Das settled for the silver medal after losing to Mexico 5-3 in the final.

India followed were trailing 2-4 in the fourth set with Mexico seeing that gold medal within their grasp. Anchor archer Juan Rene Serrano just needed one red to seal the victory.

"Everything was in my mind," said Serrano. "It wasn't too good - but good enough to win."

Serrano, the only right-handed archer in Mexico's team, shot the last rotation without any mistake to bag a second World Cup gold for Mexico. They won their first gold at Medellin last year.

"I knew I just had to put my arrow in the red to win the match," he said. "When I heard the announcer calling 'seven', I was relieved!"

Juan Rene credited his win to his teammates -- Luis Alvarez and Pedro Vivas, who made his job easy.

In the mixed pair event, Abhishek Verma and Puvasha Shende won a silver medal on Saturday.

In the women's individual event, Deepika beat Tatiana Segina of Russia 6-2 in the bronze-medal match.
