India’s squash stars Anahat Singh and Abhay Singh had to settle for a bronze medal after a tight match against Malaysia’s Aifa Binti Azman and Mohammad Syafiq Kamal (11-8, 2-11, 9-11). Despite leading in the final game, the Indian pair faced a comeback from the Malaysians who clinched five consecutive points, securing their spot in the finals.

Boxer Parveen Hooda faced a tough opponent in two-time world champion Lin Yu Ting from Chinese Taipei in the women’s 57kg semifinal, which resulted in a bronze for India after a 5-0 unanimous decision against her. Meanwhile, Tokyo Olympics medalist Lovlina Borgohain bagged a silver in the 75kg category, falling to China’s Li Qian.

In Wrestling, Sunil Kumar bagged India’s first medal in the sport as they secured a bronze in the men’s Greco-Roman 87kg, defeating Atabek Azisbekov of Kazakhstan. This victory marked India’s first Greco-Roman medal in the Asian Games since 2010.

Harmilan won silver with a timing of 2:03.75s, narrowly missing gold to Sri Lanka’s Tharushi by 0.55s.

Meanwhile, Sable won his second medal for India and this time, he clinched a silver in the men’s 5000m with a time of 13:21.09. The women’s 4X400m relay team, consisting of Vithya Ramraj, Aishwarya Mishra, Prachi, and Subha Venkatesan, earned silver, narrowly finishing 0.20 seconds behind Bahrain.

The nation’s second gold medal of the day was bagged by none other than Olympic and World Champion Neeraj Chopra, who claimed his second successive title, with a throw of 88.88m. However, the biggest star of the day was Kishore Jena’s performance as the 28-year-old delivered a sensational performance of 87.54 meters to claim the silver medal. With this, he also qualified for the Paris Olympics 2024.

The last gold medal of the day was won by India’s men’s 4X400m relay team comprising the quartet of Anas Muhammed Yahiya, Amoj Jacob, Muhammed Ajmal Variyathodi, and Rajesh Ramesh. The team finished with a timing of 3:01.58 to claim India’s 18th gold in this edition of the competition.
