Tokyo Paralympics – Day 4, August 28 – Bhavina Patel in Semi-final – Preview, Schedule, Live Streaming, Where to Watch
Four Indians, including Bhavina Patel will be in action on Day 4 of Tokyo Paralympics.
The Day 3 of the Tokyo Paralympics was a mixed bag for India. If Bhavina Patel assured the country of a medal and powerlifter Sakina Khatun finished a commendable fifth, then Jaideep Deswal failed to register even single a successful lift and Tek Chand finished last in Shot Put.
However, day 4 promises to be different. Bhavina Patel will contest the semifinal of women's singles Class 4 against the 2016 Rio de Janeiro silver medallist Miao Zhang. While the Chinese would definitely enter this match as an overwhelming favourite considering her record against the Indian, one can't really predict with the form Bhavina has displayed over the past two days.
Following Bhavina would be the two men's compound archers – Shyam Sundar Swami and Rakesh Kumar in the men's 1/16 elimination. While the former will face USA's Matt Stutzman – an archer who shoots with his legs, the latter's opponent will be decided tomorrow after the 1/32 stage.
The final man in action for India would be javelin thrower Ranjeet Bhati in Men's F57. Though he is not expected to be amongst the medals, the 24-year-old would be eager to prove himself at the biggest of all stages.
