Updated On Aug 03, 2021 02:22 PM IST
  • One of the most eagerly anticipated events of the Olympic track and field programme, the 400m hurdles lived up to its billing as world champion Karsten Warholm produced a jaw-dropping performance at Tokyo's Olympic Stadium. The 25-year-old stormed over the line in an incredible 45.94 seconds, slicing a massive 0.8sec off his own world mark of 46.70 set in Oslo last month. The Indian men’s hockey team failed to progress into the finals after losing to World champions Belgium. Here's a look at day 11 of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
