Shuttler HS Prannoy became the second Indian to win a silver at the Youth Olympics while Yuki Bhambri reached the boys singles tennis final on Thursday. Prannoy was defeated 21-15, 21-16 by Pisit Poodchalat of Thailand in the final.

Yuki is just a step away from glory after he beat Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 in a tightly contested semi-final. He plays Juan Sebastian Gomez of Colombia in the final.

In athletics, Durgesh Kumar topped Heat 2 of the boys 400m qualifications. However in swimming, Aaron Agnel D'Souza showed promise in the youth men's 100m Heat 5 by securing a fourth place in the morning. But he couldn't replicate the performance later.
