TOKYO, Sept 3  — National archery champion S. Suresh’s medal dream was dashed as heavy rain in Yumenoshima Park Archery Field hampered his efforts to advance to the second round at the Paralympic Games here today.

The 2019 world archery champion was shown the exit after losing 2-6 to the Russian Paralympic Committee’s archer Bato Tsydendorzhiev in the first or the 1/16 elimination round.
