So, only an outside of chance of a medal in swimming still which is how it has been for us in Asian games. I think only 2 medals there so far - Khazhan Singh and Sandeep Sejwal.

Badminton team draws have come out and it looks bad for us in both men and women. Women have a first round bye but play top seeds Japan in the QF. It will require a miracle to win that- both Saina and Sindhu have to win their matches and somehow third singles or one of the doubles pairs have to pull off an upset which is a long shot.

Men play Maldives in first round which will be easy but in the QF they will meet hosts Indonesia where we will need to win all 3 singles matches as their doubles teams are too powerful.
We did get medals in 1950's and Khade got a medal in 2010 too.

Yes, Khade too. I do not know about 50's but perhaps participation would not have been that good at that time. 3 medals in modern era.

Usually, that’s a kiss of death for India. Hope it won’t be this time.

Early days yet in trap. Only 1 round done. So, too early to get excited.

In air rifle mixed team events though the team of Ravi Kumar and Apurvi Chandela have made the 5 team final in second position. Final in couple of hours time. Korea, India, Mongolia, China and Taiwan in final.

Sajan Prakash swam an impressive swim and qualified at 3rd position in 200m Butterfly and If he can improve some time,he may be there for a medal and gold too

Way below paar shooting from both our shooters in 10m air pistol mixed and we doesn't even qualify for finals......It is apparently Abhishek Verma's first international event. And Heena Sidhu actually cried foul of selection https://www.theweek.in/news/sports/2018 ... squad.html .

And first medal of the games comes to us in from of bronze for Ravi Kumar and Apurvi Chandela in 10M Air rifle mixed team event. Last 2 shots were bad ( below 10) for us. Else, we would have won silver ahead of China. Gold medalists Taiwan were way ahead.

So, at least start of medal hunt by us.

Now, freestyle wrestling action has begun. Sushil Kumar will be on the mat soon and Bajrang Punia a little later.

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.

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 also thru to the QF in 97 and 86 kgs. respectively.

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.

Out of other wrestlers, only Pawan Kumar gets into repachages. He will need to win 2 bouts to win bronze.

The website shows that Pawan Kumar is in the bronze medal match. I think they are giving out two bronze medals for wrestling.

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.
