Day 9 of the ongoing Tokyo Paralympics was another uneventful one with India not winning any medals.

In the quarterfinal match of the women’s K44-49kg taekwondo competition, Aruna Tanwar lost to Peru’s Leonor Espinoza Carranza 84-21 on Thursday at the Tokyo Paralympics. However, on account of severe injuries that Tanwar had sustained during the opening rounds of the Games, she will not take part in the repechage round that could have found her a place back into the medal contention.

In the singles event however, Parul Parmar lost to Cheng Hefang 8-21, 2-21. The 48-year-old Parmar however, also happens to be a two-time world champion in the SL3 category.
