After Mirabai Chanu’s historic silver medal in weightlifting lifted Indian athletes’ spirits on the opening day of the Tokyo Olympics, India looked to improve their medal tally with multiple events lined up on Day 2. It was a good day for the Indian rowing team of Arjun Lal and Arvind Singh that made it into the semifinals. Shuttler PV Sindhu won her opener in a fierce start to a better Rio campaign. Paddler Manika Batra advanced to the third round. Afterwards, Mary Kom opened her Tokyo 2020 campaign with a round of 32 win in the 51kg category but fellow boxer Manish Kaushik (63kg category) faced an early exit with a loss in the round of 32.
