The 118-strong Indian contingent continued to put on a generally dismal show barring a few exceptions like archer Atanu Das on Day 4 of competitions at the Olympic Games at Rio on Tuesday. The talented Das blanked his Nepalese rival Jitbahadur Muktan 6-0 to reach the round of 16.


The 24-year-old from Kolkata scored 7 10’s out of 9 as he looked calm and composed during his stint in the elimination round. The score-line read 29-26, 29-24, 30-26.
