    Vikas Gowda up next in discus throw
    Vikas Gowda is up in the men's discus throw event next. He was the silver-medalist in the Incheon Games in 2014 and would have been a contender for a final spot. But, a shoulder injury has laid the athlete low this year, and while he would look to do his best today, it just may not be enough at the end of the day. Good luck!

    Gutta-Ponnappa lose the match
    Gutta has produced some lovely touches at the nets today. Down 12-16, she brings out a stunning net-smash to start a revival. Ponnappa wins the next with another lovely drive, and soon they close to 15-16. Some back-and-forth sees the scores at 17-19. But Gutta makes errors on two consecutive points, and they have lost the match. That also means they are out of the tournament.

    They put up a good fight yesterday against the World No. 1s, and today was also a tight contest. Well played, women!
