It was a disappointing day for India at Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday. The Indian men's hockey team lost to world champions Belgium and will now contest for a bronze medal against Germany on August 5. The men's hockey team last won an Olympic bronze at the 1972 Munich Olympics. India's wrestling campaign started on a losing note when the prodigious Sonam Malik lost her 62 kg Round of 16. In track and field, Annu Rani and Tajinderpal Singh were nowhere close to their top form and exited Tokyo 2020. (MEDAL TALLY | AUGUST 3 HIGHLIGHTS | NEWS)
