After Mirabai Chanu’s stunning silver on Saturday, it’s time for another jam-packed day in the Olympic Games. Sunday, July 25, will continue to be covered by our live blog — and here are the events that Indians will be participating in. All times given are in IST. To simplify things further, we’ve divided them into ‘medal events’ (those that have a final, i.e. a medal-winning opportunity, on the day) and ‘others’ (only qualifying rounds on the day).

MEDAL EVENTS

SHOOTING

10m air pistol women’s — Qualification: 5.30 AM; Final: 7.45 AM

Manu Bhaker is world no.2 and has 13 World Cup medals to her name. She’s 19 and she makes for must-watch sport. Joining her is the only person ranked above her. Yashaswini Deswal is the world no.1 and is in fine form. Should make for an interesting event for Indian sports fans.

10m air rifle men’s — Qualification: 9.30 AM; Final: 12:00 PM

Divyansh Singh Panwar is 18 (!), world no.2 and would be looking to make a splash at his debut Olympics. Deepak Kumar, at the other end of the experience spectrum, is 33 but also making his Olympics debut. The world no. 11 will be ken to make his mark.

ROWING

Arjun Lal and Arvind Singh in lightweight double sculls repechage action at 6.30 AM — if they finish in the top 3 of this race, they’d make the semifinals.
