This year India has had one of the most splendid performances in the Olympics.

I Am Sorry: Fencer Bhavani Devi Pens Emotional Note to Fans after Historic Performance at Tokyo 2020
Bhavani Devi, the first Indian fencer to win a round at the Olympics, went out with her head held high as she fought well against France’s Manon Brunet 7-15 in a Round of 32 matches of the women’s individual sabre competition at the Tokyo Olympics on Monday.
Bhavani Devi, from Chennai who had outplayed Nadia Ben Azizi of Tunisia 15-3 to advance, put up a good fight as Manon, the World No. 3 from France who narrowly missed a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics five years ago, was too strong.
“Big Day. It was Excitement & Emotional. I won the first match 15/3 against Nadia Azizi and become the first Indian fencing player to win a match at the Olympics but 2nd match I lost 7/15 against world top 3 player Manon Brunet. I did my level best but couldn’t win. I am sorry," she tweeted.
