After a spirited performance from Sandeep Kumar in the Men's 20km Race Walk final, all eyes will be on the Women's category with the duo of Priyanka Goswami and Bhawna Jat in the race-walking finals at the Tokyo Olympics.

Bhawna Jat ensured qualification for Tokyo Olympics after setting a time of 1:29:54, with the qualification mark set at 1:31:00, at the National Open Race Walking Championships in Ranchi in 2020.

Apart from race-walking, Indian athletics will also have representation in the Men's 4x400 Relay event where the likes of Muhammed Anas, Rajiv Arokia, Noah Nirmal Tom, and Amoj Jacob will compete in the heats.

India ensured qualification for the event through the world rankings quota after the men's relay team was ranked 13th in the road to Tokyo rankings with the Top-16 teams qualifying for the Olympics.
