@can anyone wants to know India's medal prospects in Golf.
Aditi Ashok is currently tied 2nd. Her great performance in first two round has definitely improved our prospects of securing a medal. Then again Golf is a funny game, anything can happen till the last putt is holed. With weather warning, there's a possibility of it being curtailed to 54-holes (3 Rounds only), that may change things too. So stay tuned and lets' hope Aditi can put another stellar show pressure...!

Congratulations to Team Hockey for a stupendous show to bring a medal home after 41 years. is proud to be part of this journey with all of you! Stay tuned to all the live action from Olympics 2020. It appears that as Olympics gets into the business end, Indians have started to mean business!

Back 9 (Both Rounds)

There are still 2 flights to finish. But their scores are not going to impact the top leaderboard. Here it is:

06:35 (GMT)5 AUG 2021

If this pans out, it'll dash a lot of hopes & dreams. Only 18 more holes may not be enough for some of the women to catch up with leaders. Though it will ring music to the leaders who will be most benefited. Let me clarify, this is just an advisory and not confirmed yet. We will know about it in some time. Will keep all of you posted here.
