India's Schedule at Tokyo Olympics 2020, Day 5: All You Need to Know
Indian athletes are trying to give their best in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics 2020. However, it hasn't been the best of Day 5 for the Indian contingent as they haven't been able to go through. Sumit Nagal lost his second-round match against Russia's Daniil Medvedev in straight sets. The Badminton pair of Satwik-Chirag lost their second-round match against the Indonesian pair.
Furthermore, India's fencer Bhavani Devi created history as she became the first Indian fencer to participate in the Olympics. Devi won her Round of 64 matches against Ben Azizi by 15-3 but lost against Manon Brunet of France by 15-7.
On the other hand, Achanta Sharath Kamal won his Round 2 match but Sutirtha Mukherjee lost her Round 2 match against Fu Yu of Portugal. Thus, the Indian athletes will hope for a better Day 5 on July 27.
After going down ignominiously against Australia by 7-1, India's men hockey team will look to bounce back against Spain in their third match of the Tokyo Olympics. The Indian players will be in action in events like Rowing, Archery, Table Tennis, Shooting, Hockey, Rowing, Swimming, and Boxing on Day 5 of the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
