Tokyo Olympic Games live: The Indian archery quartet of Deepika Kumari, Atanu Das, Tarundeep Rai and Pravin Jadhav will launch their campaign on the first day of the Tokyo Olympics on Friday.
Deepika will compete in the women’s individual qualifying round, while Das, Rai and Yadhav will be part of the men’s individual qualifying round. The 27-year-old Deepika is in great shape after winning three gold medals at the FITA World Cup stage 3 in Paris last month – vying for individual women’s Riquieu titles, women’s team and mixed team events.
Deepika will hope to be lucky for the third time in Tokyo. This Olympics is Deepika’s third game. She finished eighth in the women’s Olympic team competition at the 2012 London Olympics and crashed in the first round of the women’s individual section in Rio de Janeiro five years ago.
Fans will witness very few sports activities on the first day, as only two sports (Archery and Rowing) have to be held in the morning. The opening ceremony of the exhibition in Tokyo should take place later in the day.
India is expecting its biggest medal to date in Tokyo. During its 100-year Olympic journey, India collected 28 medals in the four-year competition, both individual and team, which includes nine gold, seven silver and 12 bronze medals.
The following is India’s schedule for the opening day of the Tokyo Olympics on Friday:

Time: 5:30 in the morning
Location: Wumenoshima Park, Tokyo
