While Indian eves will be up against a confident and better placed Australian team in the women's Hockey match in Pool B.

Earlier on Tuesday, a little fancied archer Atanu Das stormed into the pre-quarterfinals of the individual event while the men's hockey team stood up to the challenge posed by Argentina to virtually sew up a last-eight spot in the Olympic Games on Day 5.

Das first defeated Nepalese rival Jitbahadur Muktan 6-0 and then vanquished Cuba's Adrian Andres Puentes Perez 6-4 to enter the pre-quarters where he will face a tough rival in former world no. 5 South Korean archer Lee Seung-Yun on August 12.

In men's hockey, India survived a final quarter onslaught from Argentina for a nail-biting 2-1 win that enhanced their quarter-final chances.

However, the country continued to draw a blank medal-wise and faced reversals in the shooting range where Heena Sidhu made her exit after performing poorly in the women's 25m pistol event where she finished a distant 20th with 576 out of 600 points.

India's lone competitor in rowing, Dattu Baban Bhokanal, finished fourth in the quarter-finals of the men's single sculls to go out of medal reckoning.
