- Aditi Ashok’s performance at Tokyo Olympics has been stupendous
Tokyo: Aditi Ashok was among the strongest contenders for gold in the Indian contingent at the moment. She had remained among the top three in the game for most part of it. So, it was a huge disappointment when she finished fourth in the women’s individual stroke play.
Aditi’s performance has been brilliant throughout. In the finals, she was initially among the top three, but was adjudged fourth after carding 3-under 68 in the final round. Even this achievement was no mean feat, considering that the 23-year-old is ranked 200. The gold medallist, Nelly Korda, is world number 1.
President Ram Nath Kovind tweeted, “Well played, Aditi Ashok! One more daughter of India makes her mark! You have taken Indian golfing to new heights by today’s historic performance. You have played with immense calm and poise. Congratulations for the impressive display of grit and skills.”
