Track and field has never been India's forte at the Olympics. Ever since Norman Pritchard's double-silver at the 1900 Paris Games, there hasn't been an athletics medal to India's name till date.

Can the Olympics 2021 bring a change in India's fortunes?

Indian track and field athletes will be in action from July 30 to August 7. India has sent a squad of 16 individual athletes to Tokyo, along with the 4x400 men’s and mixed relay race teams.

Ace javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra and sprinter Dutee Chand are India's biggest medal hopes in athletics at the Olympics 2021.
