Day 15 highlights: India put together their best-ever medal haul as Neeraj Chopra made history by becoming the first Indian to win a gold medal in athletics at the Olympic Games when he clinched the first position at Tokyo 2020 with a throw of 87.58 metres in the javelin competition. Bajrang Punia on the other hand added another chapter to India’s glorious history in wrestling history by winning the bronze medal in men’s freestyle 65kg, beating Niyazbekov of Kazakhstan 8-0 on points for his first medal at the Olympics. Aditi Ashok came excruciatingly close to a historic Olympic medal at the Tokyo 2020 in women’s individual strokeplay (golf), finishing fourth. Aditi finished 15 under and needed a birdie in the 72nd hole to force bronze medal playoff with Lydia Ko, but that was not to be as Ko got a par score on the 18th, forcing a silver medal playoff herself with Japan’s Inami Mone.
