The Olympics campaign history has been a rather sorry story for the Indian contingent. In the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Indian athletes have tried hard but have not been able to fare well better against the top players around the world. One of the biggest reason of their failure have been the covid pandemic, which caused the lockdown in India and other parts of the world last year. The training facilities and gyms were locked, so players had to arrange facilities for themselves, and this must be the reason of them not performing quite well. But still there is a light at end of the tunnel and future holds bright of our athletes.
Here is the schedule for Indian Contingent on 1 August in Tokyo Olympics.
