Asian Games 2018 are going on in full swing. India is just 2 gold medals shy of beating its own record of 11 from the 2014 Asian Games.
India has 9 gold medals as for now.
As expected, the nation’s badminton pride — PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal, both gifted us with Silver and Bronze medals respectively. Both Saina and Sindhu lost to Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu-ying.
Whereas in Archery, Men’s team comprising of Abhishek Verma, Rajat Chauhan, Aman Saini and women’s team comprising of Muskan Kirar, Madhumita Kumari, Jyoti Surekha Vennam won the silver medal in team compound events.
Coming to the Golden Glory, Manjit Singh finished the 800m race to secure a place on top of the podium. Neeraj Chopra and Tajinderpal Singh Toor did the same in Men’s Javelin Throw and Shot Put events respectively.
Shooter Rahi Sarnobat bit gold in Women’s 25m pistol event as well.
That’s all with the individual events. Now, team events; India’s rowing team (Sawarn Singh, Sukhmeet Singh, Dattu Baban Bhokanlal, Om Prakash) won gold in the quadruple sculls event. Another one came in the Men’s Doubles Lawn Tennis event where Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan defeated Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik and Denis Yevseyev.
With a couple of days more left for the event to mark its end, India can expect more medals from its athletes. Dopewope wishes you all the luck.
