India set a new world record and won the gold medal in the men's 10 air rifle team event at the Asian Games 2023 in Hangzhou, China, in a spectacular display of skill and prowess. This victory occurred on September 25, the third day of the prestigious sporting event.
The formidable Indian shooting squad, comprised of Divyansh Singh Panwar, Rudrankkash Balasaheb Patil and Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar, combined their talents to amass an impressive total of 1893.7 points, thereby establishing a fresh world record. Simultaneously, the Indian contingent participating in the men's four rowing final displayed their mettle, securing a well-deserved bronze medal with a commendable time of 6:10:81. However, it was a nail-biting moment for Balraj Panwar, who narrowly missed out on a medal, finishing in fourth place in the fiercely contested men's singles sculls final.
Srihari Nataraj demonstrated his swimming prowess by qualifying for the men's 50m backstroke final after finishing sixth in the heats.
Indian women's cricket team on Monday won their maiden gold medal in Asian Games 2023 by defeating Sri Lanka by 19 runs in final. This is a historic feat achieved by the Indian Women's cricket team.
Rookie pacer Titas Sadhu singlehandedly earned a gold medal for the Indian women's cricket team in its maiden appearance as it defeated Sri Lanka by 19 runs in a low-scoring final of the Asian Games here on Monday.
On a pitch difficult for batting, the Indian women's team struggled to 116 for seven but it was just about par score.
However, Titas, who is just four days shy of her 19th birthday, bowled a devastating first spell and finished with superb figures of 4-1-6-3 to play a big role in restricting Sri Lanka to 97 for eight in 20 overs.
