The ninth day of the Tokyo Olympics has so far been highlighted by discus thrower Kamalpreet Kaur, who has secured a place in the final. However, the day didn’t farewell for archer Atanu Das and PV Sindhu, who lost their matches. Pugilist Amit Panghal also bowed out in his round of 16 fight against Colombia’s Yurberjen Martinez. In shooting, Anjum Moudgil and Tejaswini Sawant failed to qualify in the women’s 50m rifle 3 positions final. They finished 33rd and 15th respectively, in the qualification round.
On a brighter note, Indian Women’s hockey team defeated South Africa 4-3, and then made it to the quarter-finals after Great Britain beat Ireland 2-0. India’s hope to grab another medal is also with P.V. Sindhu as she will play the bronze medal match against China’s He Bingjiao after her semi-final loss to Tai Tzu Ying.
