Other Indians in action today didn't fare any better - 18 year old Neha Aggarwal will be disappointed to lose in the first round of the Women's Table Tennis event to Australian Jian Fang Lay by 4 games to 1. Neha won the opening game 12-10 and had her opponent on the back foot most of the match, but Jian defended ferociously and made Neha keep playing that one extra ball.
The second game was tied as 6-6, but a burst from Jian saw her win 4 points in a row and pull out a 10-6 lead. Neha saved two game points to bring it back to 10-8, but Jian won the next and game 11-8.
The third game went down to the wire and Neha had two game points at 10-8 which she sadly couldn't convert. Jian went on to eek it out 13-11. This was a bit of a blow for Neha and she didn't put up much of a might in the 4th and 5th games eventually losing 12-10, 8-11, 11-13, 8-11, 4-11.
Renjith Maheshwary's Olympic debut in the triple-jump too ended in disappointment. The 22 year old could only manage a leap of 15.77meters well below his personal best of 17.04 - though he finished near the end of the pack, even his best would not have been enough as the cut-off for qualifying for the finals was 17.10.
