TOKYO: Indian archer Pravin Jadhav's campaign at the Tokyo Olympics was brought to an end with a 6-0 loss to USA's Brady Ellison in the second round.

In the first set, Ellison started off with a 9 and 10. Jadhav managed to hit 9 and 8. Ellison shot 9 on his final arrow. Jadhav had a 10 on his final arrow, but it was too late in the 28-27 set won by Ellison.

In the second set, Jadhav began well with a 10 and 9, eclipsing the 8 and 10 shots by Ellison. On the final arrow, Jadhav scored 7, giving Ellison a small opening. The American shot 9 on the final arrow, wrapping the second set 27-26. Jadhav needed impressive scores in his final set to challenge Ellison. But two 8s followed by a 7 on the final arrow weren't sufficient against World No. 1 Ellison's 8 and two 9s.

Earlier, Jadhav knocked out world No. 2 Galsan Bazarzhapov of Russian Olympic Committee in the first round. Jadhav won 29-27, 28-27 and 27-24 to cruise into the next round, where he fell to Ellison.
