Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, postponed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, got underway on Friday, July 23. Events in Archery, Shooting, Rowing, and Equestrian are set to be held on the first day of the games. The opening ceremony is also scheduled for the day and will begin at 4:30 PM IST. India’s charge will be led by archer Deepika Kumari, the world number one in women’s recurve category, while Atanu Das will also compete. Both Indian archers will compete in ranking rounds in women’s and men’s individual category respectively. In Shooting, 10m Air Rifle women’s and men’s pre-event training will be held while in Rowing men’s and women’s Sculls Heat will be held. The Games have been marred by COVID-19 cases across camps and as a result several Indian athletes have decided to skip the opening ceremony with some of them also having events lined up on the following day.
