Women’s hockey team, Lovlina in semis, Neeraj Chopra begins

It could be a big day for India at Tokyo Olympics.

The Indian women’s hockey team’s semi-final against Argentina is the highlight of the day. Rani Rampal’s team stunned Australia in the quarter-final to earn themselves an unlikely semi-final berth. They are now a win away from qualifying for their first-ever final in Olympic history.

It will be a tall order against Argentina, but after the win over Australia, the women’s hockey team will have the license to dream.

Lovlina Borgohain will also be in action in her semi-final against Turkey’s Busenaz Surmeneli. With bronze reserved for both losing semi-finalists in boxing, she has already secured a medal but she would be hoping to become the first Indian boxer to reach the Olympic final.

Three Indian wrestlers will begin their bids to win medals. Ravi Dahiya and Deepak Punia, both seeded, have been handed relatively good draws and will be favourites to finish on the podium given their ranking and seedings. For debutant Anshu Malik, a medal might be out of reach but she’ll be looking to cause a few upsets.
