That brings us to the end of this LIVE blog!

It was a good performance from the Indian. She made quite a few heads turn with her discus throwing in the qualification rounds. In the finals, the best she could manage was a 63.70m. 

The action now goes to Day 11 of the Olympics. India will have a big day tomorrow with the Indian men's hockey team and Lovlina Borgohain in action in the semi-finals of their respective competitions. You catch all the action from the Olympics on Sportskeeda.

Kaur would be rather upset that she could not replicate her personal best throw of 66.59m or better it. A personal best would have sealed a bronze for the Indian. However, she put forth a good contention for her country. She is still new in the circuit and has plenty to learn and improve on. Indian fans would hope that they get to see more of Kaur not only at the Olympics, but at the Asian and Commonwealth Games as well.

Well, that's the end of the discuss throw finals. Kamalpreet Kaur, the first Indian finalist in the event finishes 6th after recording a 63.7m throw.

Today, she started off with a throw of 61.62m and immediately made it to the top 8. Her next throw was a foul which pushed her to 9th. She came back strongly with a 63.7m throw and secured the final 8 spot. In the final 3 rounds, she couldn't better her score and ended in the 6th position.
