She held onto the second position after the third round. Neeraj Chopra will look to end athletics medal drought when he takes the field in javelin throw final.
新德里：周六上午，所有人的目光都集中在高尔夫球手阿迪提·阿肖克(Aditi Ashok)身上，他即将成为印度首枚高尔夫奥运奖牌得主。第三轮后，她保住了第二名的位置。尼拉吉·乔普拉(Neeraj Chopra)有望在标枪决赛中结束田径奖牌荒。
Following is the complete schedule of Indian action on Saturday:
4:17 AM: Women's Individual Stroke Play Round 4 (Diksha Dagar)
4:48 AM: Women's Individual Stroke Play Round 4 (Aditi Ashok)
3:55 PM: Men's Freestyle 65kg Bronze Medal Match (Bajrang Punia)
4:30 PM: Men's Javelin Throw Final (Neeraj Chopra)
These athletes have brought more glory to the Nation than cricketers who keep on playing with the same teams and players again and again.
I don't know how, but if India needs to win more medals at Olympic, one must reduced the coverage of Cricket on so many channels.
Tomorrow 3 medals. Aditi, Bajrang and Neeraj. Jai Hind
Many tiny and insignificant countries have won golds whereas India is at the bottom with just 2 silver and 3 bronze. 1.3 billion hopes lies on Neeraj's shoulders to bring gold although the odds are low.
Ban cricket to prome international sports in the country.Cricket is not an international sport (British kabaddi)
Neeraj Chopra is the last gold medal hope
Motivational es by the po iticians only a few hours before the matches are not going to help much when the budget allocation for sports is reduced by Rs.230 crores. Plan for the future now.
Sports can be promed only by develo school level infrastructure and encouragement. Individually States should start promoting one specific game like Punjab for Hockey, Haryana Wrestling....

Cricket is self sustaining game. Go nment is going all out to sponsor sports person who are capable of getting medial. They are being trained abroad at Go nment money. Chanu and his coach were trained in foreign countries. Go nment bears their expenses whenever they go for international competition.
How about one gold, one silver, and one bronze tomorrow. I know, I am expecting too much. But Common India !!
No point blaming cricket, as it is a multi billion sport, especially with Bollywood also deeply involved. The glamour quotient is very high
The flip side is that it is a game played by very few countries and is not even
part of Olympic sports.
Need More Land
Win more medals
Remove all kind of reservation and caste sy em and we will start getting Gold medals.
Yes all sports should be given equal time on television.Just so fed up watching cricket on all sports channels.please after these Olympics show us different sports coverage too.There are so many sports being pursued by us Indians why just show cricket.
Media hyped players didnt deliver as expected except sindhu( Gold was expected and had to settle for bronze).
We still needs to introspect why our World no 1's in their individual sport like Deepika Kumari, Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Phogat and Amit Panghal are not able to make the finals. Is it stage fear or the ranking sy em is flawed
Don't blame cricket. They have done good advt. Govt and industrialists need to come up and prome. How many Indians /kids take up athletics as a sport its only cricket cause people are after money nothing else
None of these 3 chutz wil win a medal
We are proud of our athletes who participated in Olympic
2 medals for sure
2 gold & 1 bronze
