It just seems like the Indian athletes are determined to showcase their true potential at the Tokyo Paralympics 2020 Games. Even though India did not manage to secure any gold, but Day 7 proved to be an emphatic one as athletes Mariyappan Thangavelu and Sharad Kumar manage to secure a silver and bronze medal respectively in the Men’s high jump event. Earlier in the day, Singhraj Adana held his nerves to ensure a third medal by winning a bronze in the Men's 10m Air Pistol SH1 Final.

Talking about the medal tally, China have stamped their authority since the first day. They have managed to stretch their lead at the top by securing 62 gold medals by the end of Day 7. China’s tally is more than the double of the contingent following them at number two position, Great Britain with 29 gold medals registered against their name. Great Britain is followed by RPC with 25 gold medals, then by USA at number four with 24 gold medals. The last spot in the top 5 is secured by Ukraine with 15 gold medals.
