Asian Athletics C’hips: India bag four medals on final day; finish fourth

@afiindia
India bagged four medals, including a Gold, on the final day of the Asian Athletics Championships at Doha in Qatar yesterday. PU Chitra successfully defended her Women's 1,500 metres Gold she had won in 2017, while Ajay Kumar Saroj in Men's 1,500 metres and the Women's 4x400 metres relay team clinched a silver each. Sprinter Dutee Chand added a bronze in Women's 200 metres race.

In the Men's 4x400 metres relay, India was initially declared to have won a Silver, but the jury later disqualified the team for impeding an athlete after protest by China. India filed an appeal against the jury's decision but it was rejected.

India ended at the fourth spot in the medals tally with 3 Gold, 7 Silver and 7 Bronze. Bahrain topped the table with 11 Gold, 7 Silver and 4 Bronze. China was second with 10 Gold, 13 Silver and 7 Bronze, while Japan was third with 5 Gold, 4 Silver and 9 Bronze.


India had won 29 medals - 12 Gold, 5 Silver and 12 Bronze in the last edition in Bhubaneswar in 2017, topping the medal tally for the first time.
