Rio de Janeiro:
Indian players at Rio Olympics 2016 have managed to capture the imagination of Indian audiences. Whilst the nation waits for the first Olympics medal this year, the nation’s hopes in next two days will remain tied up with the girl power –Dipa Karmakar, Sania Mirza and Lalita Babbar.
Women’s Vault Final: Sunday, 23:17 hrs
Dipa Karmakar will be the biggest news of the day as she will compete in the finals of the vaults on Sunday night. Last time, nation stayed up late to watch her amazing Produnova technique live, but were grossly disappointed as the broadcaster chose to show only a glimpse of the first Indian female gymnast in Olympics. Let’s hope Indian audiences get to see her performance with a win this time.
Sania Mirza (and Rohan Bopanna)
Match for bronze medal: Monday, 00:30 hrs
