Due to a possible hairline fracture, India’s Aruna Tanwar withdrew from the repechage quarter-finals of the Tokyo Paralympics taekwondo Women K44-49kg on Thursday. On Thursday, the Indian competed in two bouts (round of 16 and quarterfinal) and was hurt during her maiden triumph. Aruna was transferred to a Tokyo hospital for further testing and imaging, and a hairline fracture is likely. Deepa Malik, the president of the Paralympic Committee of India (PCI), confirmed the storey.

Deepa Malik, the PCI’s chief, announced the announcement on Twitter

“We regret to inform you that our Tigress sustained an injury during her fight. A hairline fracture is suspected. Her first match was easily won, but we saw that she lacked vigour in the second. Deepa Malik posted on Twitter, “Swelling has escalated and requires medical attention.”

Aruna’s withdrawal from the repechage quarterfinal is due to a “possible fracture of the left forearm and possible fracture of right foot,” according to the Indian delegation. Aruna’s decision to withdraw was based on “extreme discomfort and dysfunction due to the foregoing injuries,” according to the withdrawal form.

Aruna Tanwar competed in the Tokyo Paralympics and performed admirably

Aruna Tanwar, India’s first Paralympic taekwondo athlete, faced Serbia’s Danijela Jovanovic in the round of 16 and made an early statement at the Games by defeating her opponent by a score of 29-9 in three rounds. She jumped out to an early 8-4 lead at the end of round one and stretched her lead to 14-7 before the third round began. After three rounds, she defeated Jovanovic by a score of 29-9. However, an injury in her round of 16 matches prevented the young Indian from defeating Leonor Espinoza Carranza in the quarterfinals. After putting up a tremendous battle, she lost the quarterfinal match by a score of 84-21.

Aruna, who is from Dinod in Haryana, was set to face Royala Fataliyeva of Azerbaijan in the repechage quarter-final on Thursday at 2 p.m. IST. The medal matches and the semi-finals will both take place on the same day. India, on the other hand, hopes that their daughter recovers fast so that she can continue to roar in future competitions.
