Catch all the LIVE scores & updates from archery: India's Pravin Jadhav loses second round


13:35 (IST)28 JUL 2021

End of the road for Pravin Jadhav

Pravin Jadhav's journey in the Tokyo Olympics 2021 comes to an end as he is eliminated in the second round. The Indian loses to second seed and top-ranked archer Brady Ellison 0-6. 

Both the players, apart from battling it among themselves, had to win over the extreme conditions too. 

It cannot solely be put on adverse weather conditions too. The Indian didn't get his shots properly on target and scores of 8s and 7s did him in. The American did keep his cool and that was what that made the difference. 

We have Atanu Das and Deepika Kumari left to compete in the Indian archery contingent. The World No. 1 Deepika Kumari will be in action later in the day while Atanu Das will be playing tomorrow. 

Until then, it is goodbye from us. Keep following Sportskeeda for more updates.

Pravin Jadhav vs Brady Ellison in second round

USA's Brady Ellison has comfortably got it past his Iranian opponent and will be Pravin Jadhav's opponent. 

Not to forget, Brady Ellison is World No. 1. 

12:46 (IST)28 JUL 2021

Consistency sets Pravin Jadhav apart

The focus was undoubtedly on Atanu Das before the Tokyo Olympics 2021 started and as of now it is safe to say it is Pravin Jadhav who has aced it. 

The archer has been on the money with his surgical precision and his understanding of the conditions and adapting to them. 

He has now staved off a challenge from Russian Olympic Committee's Galsan Bazarzhapov in the first round and will progress to the second. He will either meet the 63rd seed Iran's Milad Teymoorlooei or USA's Brady Ellison, who is seeded second. 

Considering how the individual rounds have panned out so far, it would be of no surprise to see Pravin Jadhav go deep into the event. 

We will meet in sometime for Pravin's next match. 

12:37 (IST)28 JUL 2021

Pravin Jadhav wins third set, progresses to next round

Pravin Jadhav wins the third set  28-24 and surges into the next round. 

Bazarzhapov started with a 9, lost steam by scoring 7 and then managed an 8 while Pravin held his cool to score two 9s and one 10. 

There is a lot that has come into play here. The archer's confidence, perseverance, talent and more importantly adapting to conditions. 

Pravin Jadhav looked calm and composed and made sure to hit the 10s when he needed them. 

He has been one of the best archers for India in the Tokyo Olympics 2021. Among the three Indian male archers, he emerged on top in the ranking round; partnered with Deepika Kumari in the mixed event, and relatively got an easy opponent in the first round. 

12:35 (IST)28 JUL 2021
