After the women’s discus final resumed after a brief rain stoppage, Kamalpreet Kaur finished sixth with a best throw mark of 63.70m. 

A brave and determined Indian women's hockey team etched its name in the history books by entering the Olympic Games semifinals for the first time, stunning three-time champions and world no.2 Australia 1-0 in an intense last-eight tie on Monday. A day after the Indian men's team entered the Olympic semifinals following a 49-year gap, the world no. 9 women's side also produced a phenomenally gritty performance to make it way into the last four.

Indian sprinter Dutee Chand continued her disappointing run at the Olympics as she failed to qualify for the women's 200m semifinals after finishing last in her heat on Monday.

Dutee registered a season's best timing of 23.85 seconds to finish seventh and last in Heat 4 which was topped by Christine Mboma of Namibia with a timing 22.11 seconds.

Top three finishers from each of the seven heats and the next three fastest qualify for the semifinals.

Dutee, who has a personal best of 23 seconds, ended at 38th overall out of 41 competitors.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee congratulated badminton ace P V Sindhu for winning her second Olympic medal at the Tokyo Games on Sunday.

Banerjee joined President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi among others who rejoiced at her feat.

Sindhu on Sunday became only the second Indian and first woman to win two Olympic medals, securing a bronze after a straight-game win over world no.9 He Bing Jiao of China in the women's singles third-place play-off match in Tokyo.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hailed Sindhu as 'one of our most outstanding Olympians'.
