While women’s hockey team defeated Australia 1-0 to reach the last 4, equestrian Fouaad Mirza also made history on Monday, when he ended his Individual Eventing campaign in his debut Olympics as Individual Jumping finalist with a total of 59.60 penalty points, finishing at the 23rd position.
However, it was disappointment in the track and field for the Indian athletes as sprinter Dutee Chand failed to make it past the 200m heats, while discus thrower Kamalpreet Kaur finished 6th in the women’s discus final with a best throw of 63.70.
Now on Tuesday (August 3), Indian men’s hockey team, who defeated Great Britain in the quarter-final, will look to keep their golden hopes alive when they meet Belgium in the first semi-final of men’s hockey at the Tokyo Olympics.
