World Cup champion Indian women’s rebounding team fell out of Sunday’s Olympic race after losing to lower-ranked Colombia in the final qualifiers. The Indian women archers had the last chance to secure a team quota with their singles women’s quota in Tokyo, but they failed to do so. Deepika Kumari will now be India’s only female athlete in the women’s category at the Tokyo Games. He will represent the country at the third consecutive Olympics. India has already secured the men’s team quota for the 2019 Olympics from the World Championships in Den Bosch, Netherlands.
