The compound archers are now on course to meet their three-gold target with the mixed team event to be held Friday.

Fatin and Nurul Syazhera each hit nines in the shoot-off, before Saritha rediscovered her ideal aim, hitting a 10 to claim Malaysia's first archery gold of the Games.

"There are some glitches here and there, we are taking care of that now", SportsMinister Khairy Jamaluddin told reporters, adding that overall the picture was "so far so good".

The Republic won two bronze medals in archery - in the men's individual and team recurve events - at the previous Games on home soil.
