Tokyo: It was a Super Sunday for the Paralympians as they secured three medals on Day 5 of the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics on Sunday.

The day kicked off with para-paddler Bhavina Patel, who lost the final 3-0 (7-11 5-11 6-11) to China's world no. 1 Ying Zhou but still secured the silver medal for India.

 

Soon after, Rakesh Kumar and Jyoti Baliyan, who participated in the  Compound Archery Mixed Team event, lost to Oznur Cure and Bulent Korkmaz of Turkey to bow out of the showpiece event.
