    BOXING UPDATE

    Britain's Galal Yafai said that he will enjoy light-hearted bragging rights over his boxing brothers after defeating Carlo Paalam to win flyweight Olympic gold on Saturday.

    The 28-year-old Yafai, a former car-factory worker, won on split points in an enthralling contest against the Filipino to earn Britain's first boxing gold in Tokyo.

    There was meanwhile a shock in the men's middleweight final after Brazil's Hebert Sousa produced a stunning third-round knockout to win gold.

    Yafai's older brothers, Kal and Gamal, are both established professionals. But neither ever won a Games medal, never mind a gold one.

    Yafai said that he will indulge in a little good-natured one-upmanship when he sees them.

    PLATFORM DIVING UPDATE

    China proved its Olympic diving dominance once again on Saturday as Cao Yuan took gold in the individual 10m platform, with teammate Yang Jian scooping the silver.

    Bronze went to Britain's Tom Daley, who was back on the podium after an emotional gold medal win in the men's 10m synchronised last week.

    That was the only diving event out of eight at the Tokyo Games that has not been won by China.

    Cao and Yang were dominant through most of the 10m platform competition, taking the two top spots in both qualifiers and semi-finals.

  • Aug 07, 2021 01:51 PM IST

    Synchronised swimming update

    Japan, once a synchronised swimming star that nearly always secured a place on the Olympic podium, is this year struggling to hang onto the team bronze it won in Rio 2016 after already failing to retain duet bronze.

    The rising star is Ukraine, which edged Japan for that medal on Wednesday and finished in third place to Japan's fourth in the team technical event on Friday - a placement that hurts more in an Olympics hosted at home. The Russian team was first and China second.

    Though Japan has never won gold since synchronised swimming became an Olympic sport in 1984, it has taken either silver or bronze, in duet or team, every year except for London 2012.

    Boxing update

    Busenaz Surmeneli of Turkey beat Gu Hong of China to win the women's welterweight boxing gold at the Tokyo Olympics on Saturday.

    Tokyo Olympics Day 15 - LIVE!

    Hello and welcome to our live blog of Day 15 of the Tokyo Olympics. Three athletes and three medal. If you told on August 23 that that penultimate day of the Tokyo 2020 Summer Games would see three India athletes compete for a medal, I would have probably lost my jaw. But it is what it is! Golfer Aditi Ashok, who is currently placed second in the standings after three round, has a chance to play out one more round and stand on the podium. Then, wrestler Bajrang Punia can end his challenge on a bright note by winning his bronze medal match. And finally, India's star javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra would look to win gold after topping the qualification round. Can these Indian athletes get the job done? Stay tuned and let's find out together!
