Day 12 Recap

That's the end of Day 12's proceedings.

India started Day 12 on a high note thanks to Neeraj Chopra's 86.65m throw in his first attempt in the javelin throw qualification round. He will now be in action next on Saturday at 4.30 pm IST. Meanwhile, Shivpal Singh failed to qualify to the final.

Wrestler Ravi Kumar Dahiya was at his best today, winning his round of 16 match 13-2, quarter-final match 14-4, and sem-final by pinning his opponent down.

He will take home at least a Silver medal from the Tokyo Olympics. The Gold medal match is on 5 August. He's the first Indian to enter a Wrestling final since Sushil Kumar in 2012.

Deepak Punia too started well, winning his round of 16 match 12-1, quarter-final 6-3, but lost his semi-final bout 10-0. He will fight for the bronze medal.

Anshu Malik, who had a tough draw, lost her round of 16 match 8-2 but will have another go at the bronze, via repechage.

Boxer Lovlina Borgohain lost her semi-final bout to the world champion Busenaz Surmeneli but won the Bronze medal.

Women's hockey team lost their semi-final match against Argentina 1-2. They will now play Great Britain on Friday at 2 pm IST for Bronze.

Golfer Aditi Ashok finished round 1 tied 2nd.

We will come back live tomorrow with all the action from Day 13 of the Tokyo Olympics.

Hockey: India will now play Great Britain in the bronze level match on Friday, 6 August at 2 pm IST.

Meanwhile, Argentina will take on the Netherlands in the final.

5:05 PM , 04 Aug

Hockey: Argentina not happy with the long corner decision. Free hit for Argentina and they hit it long. And it's all over. India have lost the match 1-2.

4:59 PM , 04 Aug

Hockey: Indian defence and midfield need to up their game and put pressure on Argentina. Argentina building an attack now. Free hit for them. Dominating right now. Albertarrio shoots from the left but her shot is far and wide. Not a threat. Free hit for India. Now an attack from the right. Nice pass into the D but to no avail. Last 60 seconds left now.

Free hit for India. Navneet Kaur's deflection is saved by the Argentinian. THAT WAS CLOSE! India ask for a PC. Referral is still going on. 17 seconds left. And it's not a PC. India is asking for a long corner and get it.
