The Indian women’s hockey team shocked Australia to enter the semi-finals in Tokyo. India held onto their lead through Gurjit Kaur in the second quarter as they showcased immense defensive might to keep the Australian women at bay.
In shooting, India’s Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar and Sanjeev Rajput started their rounds as they aim to make amends in the disappointing shootings results so far in Tokyo for India as they began in 50m Rifle 3 Positions Men’s Qualification.
Meanwhile, starting the day for India, Dutee Chand clocked her season best timing of 23.85 seconds in the women’s 200 m race but finished last in the heat, failing to qualify for semifinal.
Equestrian player Fouaad Mirza will also be in action. Kamalpreet Kaur will vie for a medal in the women’s discus throw final on Monday.
After a carnage-filled Day 9 that saw PV Sindhu added to India’s medal tally with a bronze, India will now pin hopes on Kamalpreet Kaur as she will be throwing the 1kg disc in hope of a medal.
