In case you missed out from all the action that's transpired before today, here's a quick recap 👆

09:43 (IST)29 JUL 2021

A warm welcome to all of you to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of today's Race 7 and Race 8 of the Women's Laser Radial event. 

Nethra's been a tad bit inconsistent so far in the Women's Laser Radial event, but there's a case for some room for error, considering this is her debut Olympics. The Indian sailor finished Race 1 in 33rd but came back strong to pick up 17th place in Race 2.

Race 3 was even better for Nethra, where she finished in 15th place, her best position until now. However, two races since, she's failed to finish before the 30s, registering 32nd place (Race 5) and 39th place (Race 6).
