The Day 8 at Tokyo Olympics 2020 produced another exciting day for fans across the globe as China retained their spot at top of the medal tally with 46 medals in total. The Chinese contingent clinched 2 Gold, 3 Silver and 1 Bronze on Saturday to extend their lead. Meanwhile, Japan and USA also won a few medals each to complete the top three while India slipped down further to 60th position.

Talking about some key events of the day, Novak Djokovic lost the bronze medal match in men's singles and had to pull out of mixed doubles' event as well. As a result, the Serbian will have to go back home empty-handed from Tokyo. Meanwhile, the highlight of the day came in women's 100m finals where Jamaica's Elaine Thompson-Herah retained her title with an Olympic record timing of 10.61 seconds.
