Daily Schedule of Events in IST on 10th August
Manoj Kumar is one of the medal winning prospects of India

World Events to watch:

00:30 AM (11th August): Men’s gymnastics all-around final: Kohei Uchimura is a six-time Olympic medalist, winning two golds and four silvers, a 19-time World medalist and is considered by many to be the greatest gymnast of all time.


Important Pointers:

  • India meets Australia in Women’s Hockey tomorrow and the Australians are favourites to win the tie
  • Dattu Bhokanal will compete in the Men’s Singles Sculls C/D Semifinal. This is purely for ranking purpose as he got eliminated from the medal race already.
  • Satish Sivalingam’s career best of 339 Kgs might not give him any medal going by last few Olympics’ standards.
  • Avtaar Singh’s qualification to Rio 2016 came as a surprise and any medal expectation is too farfetched.
  • Manoj Kumar is a veteran of boxing and has won against top boxers on several occasions. He is one of the brightest prospects for a medal contention.
