Tokyo Olympics 2021 Indian Players List

Tokyo Olympics 2021

Corona era's biggest sports fair begins from 23rd of July

Japan is ready to host the World’s largest sports fair (Olympics) during the corona period. This will be the sport, but it will be the biggest global event since the coronavirus. However, the opening ceremony to be held on Friday will not be as grand and colorful as the previous games. Only about one thousand people will gather in the stadium with a capacity of 65 thousand spectators. Nevertheless, organizing the Olympics in all adverse circumstances will be the biggest example of the spirit of humanity that does not give up. Despite the empty grounds, there will be tremendous adventure and passion.

Players who compete the next day have been asked to stay away from the ceremony. Only a 26-member Indian contingent along with six officers will be at the ceremony.

Shooters Saurabh Chaudhary, Abhishek Verma, Elavenil Velarivan, Apurvi Chandela competing on the first day will not be a part of the opening ceremony.

Indian Players List To Qualify For Tokyo Olympics

Bajrang Poonia: Wrestling

Asian gold medalist and world champion Bajrang Punia is one of the biggest contenders for a men’s medal at the Tokyo Olympics 2021. 27 years old Bajrang has been seeded second in the 65kg category at the Tokyo Olympics. In the Olympics, he will have to face the world champion Rashidov of Russia. Rashidov has been given the top seed.

Vinesh Phogat: Wrestling

Wrestler Vinesh Phogat is India’s biggest hope in Tokyo. United World Wrestling has given her the top seed, considering her a gold medal contender in the 53 kg weight category in wrestling. Vinesh had secured a ticket to Tokyo as well as winning bronze at the World Championships in 2019. Vinesh’s biggest rival was believed to be Yang Mi Pak of North Korea. But by not participating in Korea, Vinesh’s path will be easy.

Mary Kom: Boxing

Mary Kom will be the most experienced boxer in Tokyo Olympics 2021. London Olympics bronze winner Mary Kom is currently the world’s top boxer in her category. Six-time world champion Mary Kom would like to win a medal in her last Olympics.

Deepak Poonia: Boxing

Deepak Poonia is also being considered a strong contender for the medal. He had given the second seed in the 86 kg weight category. Deepak came into the limelight by becoming the Junior World Champion. He has reached from junior to senior in 2019 itself. Deepak had also secured an Olympic ticket in the Noor Sultan tournament.

Sonam Malik: Wrestling

The Indian wrestling world has never seen such a talented wrestler before Sonam. Sonam is also considered a medal contender after seeing the speed with which 18-year-old Sonam, the world junior and cadet champion, made headlines from junior to senior level. She is the youngest Indian wrestler to qualify for the Olympics.

Deepika Kumari: Archery

The recent performance of world number-1 archer Deepika Kumari has been amazing. Deepika’s three gold medal wins in the Paris World Cup proved that she has no match in archery at the moment. There is no other archer like him in the world at this time. There is also a demand for a gold medal from Deepika in Tokyo Olympics 2021. Hope she completes it.

Saurabh Chaudhary: 10m Air Pistol

Saurabh Chaudhary has been performing well for the last two years. He has participated in five World Cups so far and won medals in each. He is considering as a strong contender for the medal.

Amit Panghal: Boxing

Amit, the world’s top boxer, is also a medal contender. No boxer from India has reached the great Kumbh of the Games in the status of number one. If ranking is the measure of winning a medal, Amit should win a gold medal. One has to perform under pressure in the home Olympic ring. Everyone is expecting a medal from Amit.

Vikash Krishna: Boxing

Medal hopes are high from Vikas Krishna. Seeing how he defeated the Cameroonian boxer to win the green gold in the 2018 Commonwealth Games, everyone described him as the future Olympic champion. He also excelled in the Asian Games. His mind runs very fast. He will also have the advantage of being a left-handed boxer.

Neeraj Chopra: Javelin Throw

The biggest contender for the medal in Tokyo is the army’s javelin thrower, Neeraj Chopra. His best performance is 88.07 meters. If he throws more than a meter in Tokyo, then he will be in a medal race. He is currently one of the top 3 javelin throwers in the world. He will face Germany’s Johnson Vetter and Belarus’ Pavel Mysskha.

Kamalpreet Kaur: Discus Thrower

Punjab’s Kamalpreet Kaur is India’s biggest hope in the discus throw. He surprised everyone with a throw of 66.05m in Patiala last month. Cuba’s Denia Caballero won the bronze medal at the Rio Olympics with a throw of 65.35m. Kamalpreet is throwing one meter more than this. In such a situation, she is a big contender for a medal in Tokyo.

PV Sindhu: Badminton

This time also medal is expected from badminton player PV Sindhu. She had lost the gold medal bout to Spain’s Caroline Marin at the Rio Olympics and had to be content with the silver medal. This time, with Carolina’s absence, his path will be somewhat easier.

PV Sindhu

Manu Bhaker: Shooting

India has high hopes from 19-year-old young shooter Manu Bhaker in Tokyo Olympics 2021. Before heading to Tokyo, Manu challenged himself at the ISSF World Cup that just ended this month in Asyak, winning a silver and a bronze.

Mira Bai Chanu: Weightlifting
