Tokyo [Japan], July 28 (ANI): India archer Pravin Jadhav crashed out of the men’s individual event in Tokyo Olympics after losing to USA’s Brady Ellison here at Yumenoshima Ranking Field on Wednesday. The 25-year-old suffered a 6-0 defeat in the Round of 16 match against Brady Ellison — also the current World Record holder.
World No.1 in men’s recurve category, Brady started the match with 9-10-9 in response to which Jadhav scored 9-8-10, which handed Ellison two easy points.
In the second set, Ellison had a very bad start with an 8 but the Indian didn’t manage to benefit from that mistake of the American as he scored a poor 7 with the final arrow after he aimed 10 and 9 with the first two arrows.
Starting the third round, Jadhav had all his hopes dusted after he scored 8-8-7 in comparison to 8-9-9 of Brady. The next round which is the quarterfinal will be played on Saturday.
Earlier in the day, Jadhav cruised into the Round of 16 after defeating the Russian Olympic Committee’s (ROC) Galsan Bazarzhapov. Pravin Jadhav defeated Galsan Bazarzhapov 6-0 in the 1/32 eliminations round.
Elsewhere, Tarundeep Rai also crashed out of men’s individual archery after losing to Israel’s Itay Shanny 6-4 in the 1/16 eliminations round. (ANI)
