With the javelin throw qualifications coming to an end, follow the blog for the men's hockey semifinal where our men take on mighty Belgium from the link above.

06:45 (IST)3 AUG 2021

That's the end of javelin throw qualifications. Annu Ranni crashes out and misses out on making it into the finals after managing a high score of 54.04m only. She was far from her career-best of 61.12m. A score similar to her career-best would give her the 4th position in qualifiers as only three shots were more than that score. Her score of 54.04m occupies the 14th position and it is all over for her at the Tokyo Olympics.
