5-year-old Chrukuri Dolly Shivani made two records in archery on Sunday and secured a place in the India Book of Records and the Asian Book of Records.


Shivani became India’s youngest archer in 2015 when she scored 200 points by shooting at targets placed at the distances of five and seven metres.

In her first attempt, the girl shot 103 arrows at a target placed 10 metres away in just eleven minutes and nineteen seconds. In her second, she shot 36 arrows at a target placed twenty metres away in five minutes and eight seconds. Her total scored rounded to an applause-worthy 290 points out of 360.

The Vice-President of India, Venkaiah Naidu took to Twitter to congratulate the young archer.

Others soon joined in to hail Shivani’s achievements.

Shivani is now gearing up for the 2024 Olympics. She currently trains at The Volga Archery Academy in Vijayawada.

Shivani has archery running in her blood. The girl hails from a family of archers where her dad – who tragically died in a car accident – was an international archer and coach.
