Its a bad start to India's Olympic hopes but we can expect things to get better as the day progresses.

Dutee Chand got a season-best but it was not enough to get her through to the semifinal.

Hopes will be from the Indian women's hockey team who will be playing the quarterfinals today. Also, in action will be Kamalpreet Kau, who is now a medal contender in discus throw after her 64m in the qualification round.

Until then take care and goodbye.

Who is Dutee Chand?

Dutee Chand was born to Chakradhar Chand and Akhuji Chand. Dutee comes from a family below the poverty line. Both her parents are daily wage earners by weaving fabrics. She had spent most of her childhood years in the coastal area of Gopalpur village.

At the young age of 4, Dutee was inspired to take up running after she saw her elder sister, Saraswati Chand, practicing on the banks of the Brahmani river. Saraswati is a national-level sprinter and currently works with Odisha Police.

In 2006, Dutee got her sports scholarship for admission at the government school in Bhubaneswar and that’s where she began to pursue running seriously. Initially, she used to run barefoot while training because of poor financial condition back at home, she couldn’t afford to buy a new pair of running shoes.

In 2019, she openly came out as a lesbian after she publicly proclaimed about her same-sex relationship. This didn’t go down well with her family. She received severe flak from the hooks and corners of her village. However, she stood strong and defended her stand on her same-sex relationship.

Dutee Chand is currently working as an executive officer at The Odisha Mining Corporation Limited.
