Arjun Lal Jat and Arvind Singh are India’s lone participants in rowing at the Tokyo Olympics 2020. The duo qualified in lightweight men’s double sculls at the Asia/Oceania Continental Olympic Qualifying Regatta event in Tokyo.
This year will be India's sixth consecutive appearance at the Olympics in rowing. Rowing events will take place at the Sea Forest Waterway in the Tokyo Bay area.
Both Arjun and Arvind took up rowing after enrolling themselves in the Indian Army. After the COVID-19 outbreak, the duo was forced to pull out of all the competitions. Therefore, since October 2020, the Army Rowing Node in Pune has been their base.
Indian rowers will have upstream competition against a few seasoned, top-class rowers when they step out for the battle at the Tokyo Olympics.
At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Dattu Baban Bhokanal recorded India's best finish in rowing after finishing in 16th position in the men's singles sculls. The duo of Arjun Jat and Arvind Singh will look to improve India's position in rowing at the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
The lightweight men’s double sculls will start on July 24 and will follow on July 25. The semi-finals and finals will be held on July 27 and July 29.
