India beat Australia 1-0, reach historic hockey women’s semifinals

Tokyo Olympics 2021 Day 10 Live Updates: The Indian women hockey team made history on Monday, the 10th day of Tokyo Olympics as they beat Australia 1-0 in the quarterfinals. With that, India sealed their spot in the semifinals for the first time in their Olympic history. 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.

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. Indian shooters have had a disappointing campaign in the Games so far.  Sanjeev Rajput and Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar will be looking to change that in 50m Rifle 3 positions qualifiers which will be followed by finals if the duo qualify.

Remaining India’s matches on Day 10: SHOOTING: Sanjeev Rajput and Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar in Men’s 50m Rifle 3 Positions Final: 1:20 PM (subject to qualification) | EQUESTRIAN: Fouaad Mirza in Eventing Jumping Individual Qualifier: 1:30 PM | ATHLETICS: Kamalpreet Kaur in Women’s Discus Throw Final: 4:30 PM | EQUESTRIAN: Eventing Individual Jumping Final: 5:15 PM (subject to qualification) |
