India in Tokyo Olympics 2021

India made a decent start to Day 4 at Tokyo Olympics, with fencer Bhavani Devi moving to the 2nd round in the women’s saber event before exiting in Round 32.

Disappointments followed after that. Boxer Ashish Kumar crashed out of the Olympics after losing 0-5 against Erbieke Tuoheta of China in 32 bouts. Manika Batra could not gain any momentum in her contest and lost her women’s singles third round match 0-4 (8-11, 2-11, 5-11, 7-11) against 10th seed Sofia Polcanova Austria.

India’s tennis hopes Sumit Nagal ousted in 2nd round of men’s singles tennis event (2-6, 1-6) by world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev. In Archery, Korea beat the Indian team of Atanu Das, Tarundeep Rai, and Pravin Jadhav 6-0 in straight sets to progress to the semis.

Shuttlers, Satwik- Chirag, lose in straight sets to top-ranked Indonesians in their second group game.

Major breakthroughs

Although it’s great to see India’s participation in the Olympics, it is even better to see our team rising to the top. Here are three significant breakthroughs by our Indian team in the olympics.
