India's medal tally at Tokyo 2020 swelled to five after the Indian men's hockey team and wrestler Ravi Kumar Dahiya won a bronze and silver, respectively on Thursday. But there were disappointments as well with grappler Vinesh Phogat, a medal prospect on her current form, lost in the quarterfinals and a subdued Deepak Punia blew a wrestling bronze after holding to a slender lead till the last minute of his match against a wrestler from San Marino, the tiniest nation taking part at Tokyo Olympics. India's hockey medal after 41 years came after a stunning come-from-behind win against Germany, the bronze medal winners from Rio 2016. Elsewhere, young golfer Aditi Ashok was in strong contention for a medal. She was tied 2nd at the end of Round 2 on Thursday. (MEDAL TALLY | AUGUST 5 HIGHLIGHTS | NEWS)
