In-form German beats Denmark's Jager to women's individual title

Germany's Karina Winter won the Baku 2015 women's individual archery competition on Sunday, defeating Denmark's Maja Jager 6-2 in the final.

Winter lost the first set before storming back to take the next three, finishing with a perfect 30 in the final set. 

"I shot so many 10s today. Two perfect scores, it was just amazing. I had that feeling, I was in that flow." Winter said.

Jager, the 2013 world champion, said: "She shot really well, there was not much I could do. She deserves to win."

Spain's Alicia Marin beat surprise package Evangelia Psarra of Greece 6-4 to take the bronze. 

Psarra said: "After London (2012 Olympic Games) I gave up archery. I have two children and a job. I am a lieutenant in the air force. I only came back to shooting six months ago and I did not expect to come here."
