It was a good Friday for India at the Tokyo Olympics. While Lovlina Borgohain guaranteed India a boxing medal and PV Sindhu took a step closer to a podium finish in badminton, both Indian hockey teams won their group matches. While Indian women defeated Ireland 1-0 for their first group win after three defeats, Indian men got the better of a gritty Japanese team 5-3. Archer Deepika Kumari's third Olympics also went in vain and India's fastest sprinter Dutee Chand was a big disappointment. India's shooters continued their poor run and both Manu Bhaker and Rahi Sarnobat in women's 25m pistol. (MEDAL TALLY | July 30 HIGHLIGHTS)
