Day 3 of the Tokyo Olympics will see India's only fencer Bhavani Devi competing in the Women's Sabre Individual event. She will begin her campaign in the Table of 64 stages. Bhavani qualified for the Olympics after claiming one of the two spots available for Asia and Oceania through the Adjusted Official Ranking method in the month of March.

The fencer from Chennai has been prolific on the international stage and in 2018 became the first Indian fencer to win a gold medal at the Senior Commonwealth Fencing Championship in Canberra.

The 27-year-old has been training with the Italian national team under the guidance of coach Nicola Zanotti, in Italy, since April 2021 to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics.

In the first round, Bhavani Devi will be facing 19-year-old Nadia Ben Azizi from Tunisia.
