Tokyo Olympics 2020 Games Day 10 Highlights: Kamalpreet Kaur finished sixth in the women’s discus throw final with the best throw of 63.70m. The women’s discus final had been delayed due to rain with Kamalpreet Kaur seventh on the board after two rounds. This is India’s  joint-best athletics result since Anju Bobby George finished fifth in long jump event at the 2004 Athens Olympics. In the 2012 London Olympics, Krishna Poonia also finished sixth in discus throw. Fouaad Mirza finished 23rd in the 25-man Equestrian Jumping final with a total of 59.60.

The Indian women’s hockey team have scripted history! They have booked their spot in the semifinals of the Olympics for the very first time after beating Australia 1-0 in the quarterfinals. Rani Rampal and her team will face Argentina in the semis who beat Germany 3-0 in the previous quarterfinals match. Fouaad Mirza qualified for the Equestrian-Jumping Final event. Sprinter Dutee Chand failed to make it to the semifinals of the women’s 200m dash as she finished seventh in her heat and 38th overall out of 41 athletes. She clocked 23.85s which was her season’s best performance yet could not progress. Indian shooters Aishwary Singh Tomar and Sanjeev Rajput failed to qualify for the finals of the Men’s 50m Rifle 3 Positions finishing outside of top 20.
