The fourth-place finish, the dreaded fourth-place finish. Nobody really wants to finish in that position at the Olympic Games, yet there are more than half-a-dozen instances -- with the latest being golfer Aditi Ashok in Tokyo2020 -- where Indian players or teams have missed bronze by a whisker. Aditi finished fourth with an aggregate score of 15-under 269 on Saturday.
Dipa Karmakar's hopes of qualifying for the upcoming Tokyo Games took a dash as International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) called off three World Cups, which were scheduled to be held in February and March. However, Karmakar's coach Bisheswar Nandi is hopeful that the international body will look into the matter and come up with fresh dates to ensure athletes get a chance to book their ticket to Tokyo.
