India started off its Olympic campaign on a high note with Mirabai Chanu winning a silver medal in women’s 49 kg weightlifting on Day 1 of the events. However, the days that followed have been tough for Indian athletes and fans. Many athletes ended up on the losing side and were eliminated from the race to the podium. Day 6 of the Tokyo Olympics brought in some hope for medals for the Indian contingent as badminton star PV Sindhu won her second match beating Hong Kong’s NY Cheung in a Group J match to qualify for the pre-quarterfinals.
Boxer Pooja Rani (75KG) also showed the power of her punch and entered the quarterfinal round in her maiden Olympic Games. Meanwhile, archer Deepika Kumari defeated USA’s Jennifer Mucino-Fernandez to book her place in the pre-quarters.
