Playing aggressive and deceptive shots that kept her opponent on the run throughout the match, Sindhu outplayed Mia in just 41 minutes.

Mia, who was ranked 11th in the world a couple of years back, had sent Sindhu packing from the Thailand Open in January this year, found the Indian star, silver medallist at the Rio and gunning for gold here, too strong on Thursday and could not play her usual game as Sindhu took control from the start.

Sindhu will play her quarterfinal match against Akane Yamaguchi of Japan.

Olympics 2021: India in on July 29

India’s first super heavyweight (+91kg) boxer to compete in the Olympics, Satish Kumar, eased into the quarterfinals of his debut Games, defeating Jamaica’s Ricardo Brown in his opening bout today.

In the battle of the debutants, the 32-year-old Satish prevailed 4-1, a comfortable win for him despite the split verdict.

The two-time Asian Championships bronze-winner Indian, who has been a multiple-time national champion, was helped by Brown’s poor footwork throughout the bout though he did end up sustaining two cuts — one on his forehead and the other on his chin.

“He got cuts because of three head butts during the bout. But it was a very measured performance by Satish, he could have been in trouble had Brown connected because he was huge and powerful,” Indian boxing’s High Performance Director Santiago Nieva told PTI.

Next up for Satish is Uzebkistan’s Bakhodir Jalolov, the reigning world and Asian champion. Jalolov out-punched Azerbaijan’s Mahammad Abdullayev 5-0 in his last-16 bout.

“He is not unbeatable. Although Satish has never won against him but the last time they fought in the India Open, it was split verdict. He ran him close,” Nieva said.

Satish, also a 2018 Commonwealth Games silver-medallist, dominated with his right hand and allowed Brown to repeatedly make the mistake of lunging in with very little balance.

Olympics 2021: India vs Argentina men’s hockey

India men’s hockey team defeated defending Olympic Champion Argentina by 3-1 in their fourth group A game.


With this win, the Indian men’s hockey team has qualified for the quarterfinals in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

India started the match at a good pace as defenders gave no clear-cut chance to defending champion to find that rhythm in midfield. Dilpreet Singh had India’s best chance in quarter one but it was kept out by the Argentine goalkeeper by a very good save.

India’s finishing was not clinical even in the second quarter and it remained scoreless after the end of the first half.

In the third quarter, the pressure by Indian forwards finally delivered as Varun Kumar gave the team a much-needed breakthrough after converting a very well worked penalty corner. In the dying minutes of the quarter, Graham Reid’s men were close to double their lead but Argentina goalkeeper Juan Manuel came big for his team again by saving a nicely worked PC by the Indian team.In the fourth quarter, Argentina responded well by converting a PC and levelled the match against India as Casella stormed the ball past Sreejesh.

With the match going for a draw, Vivek Sagar Prasad came with an absolute poacher of a finish to regain the lead for the team. Minutes later Harmanpreet Singh came clutch for India from PC and sealed the match for India.

After this victory, India has now won three matches in their group.
