Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

Yes, but Chinese Hairon Yang is a defending Asian champion and world champion. So, he was expected to take gold. Ravi could have been expected to take silver. But, glad that at least Deepak took it with few brilliant shots in the end. He had a 10.9 and a 10.8 to save him from eliminations twice. He ...

Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

Pawan Kumar loses his bronze medal bout against the Mongolian. So, 5 of the 6 weight categories done in mens freestyle wrestling and we have only 1 gold to show. Last time we had 3 medals - 1 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze. But, there were 8 weight categories last time. So, at least 2 medals would have be...

Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

I don't think anyone else of Olympic potential apart from ones mentioned above. Apart from Meerabai who is injured, Jitu Rai and Tejaswini Sawant are not selected based on current form.

Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

Yes, he will be in bronze medal match against a Mongolian wrestler shorty as will be Bajrang for his gold medal match.

Sajan Prakash created another national record with 1.57.75 in 200M butterfly but good enough only for 5th behind 2 Chinese and 2 Japanese.

Bajrang with a 10-0 win over a Mongolian wrestler to reach the final. What a dominant performance by Bajrang so far with 3 wins by 10 points margin to assure him of at least a silver. :clap: Of course, with this kind of form, he takes gold in the evening against Japanese Takatani.

Another dominating 12-2 win by Bajrang over a Turkeministan wrestler to move thru to the SF in 65 kgs. Sandip Tomar lost to Iranian wrestler 15-9 in the QF. He will have to wait if the Iranian wins his SF to see if he gets into repachages. 2 more Indian wrestlers, Mausam Khatri and Pawan Kumar are a...

Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

Sushil Kumar bows out in first round itself. Loses to Baharain's Adam Baitrov 3-5. He was too slow and I think too old now for this level at 35.

Sandeep Tomar wins his PQF bout against Turkeministan wrestler 12-8. He will be up against an Iranian wrestler in the QF though.
