    India create history, smash their highest-ever medal tally at Asian Games, can dream of century

    The Indian contingent achieved its highest-ever medal tally at Asian Games with four and a half days of action still to go at the 19th edition in Hangzhou.

    India's rise in the global sports arena got a fresh stamp of approval at the Asian Games 2023. The Indian contingent achieved its highest-ever medal tally at the Games with four and a half days of action still to go at the 19th edition in Hangzhou. Their previous best was 70 medals in the last edition of the Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2018. They took their overall medal tally to 71 on Wednesday in the current edition by adding two more medals in the first half of the day.

    India ended Day 10 with 69 medals, holding on to the fourth spot comfortably and it did not take long for them to match their Jakarta tally on Day 11. Ram Baboo and Manju Rani won bronze in the first event of the day - the 35km race walk mixed team. They finished with a timing of 5:51:14. China took the gold medal (5:16:41) while Japan got silver (5:22:11) with a second finish. This historic bronze medal in race walk meant India equalled their best-ever performance at the Asian Games.

    About an hour later, it was the golden effort from the archers that made the ongoing Hangzhou Games India's best ever. Jyothi Surekha Vennam and Pravin Ojas Deotale won gold in the compound archery mixed team event after beating Chaewon So and Jaehoon Joo of South Korea 159-158. This was India's first gold in archery in this edition of the Games and it was a special one in more ways than one. It took India's overall medal tally to 71 - their best ever and it also matched their best-ever gold medal count at the Games. India have already got 16 gold medals, equalling their effort in Jakarta five years ago.

    India have so far won 16 gold medals, 26 silver medals and 29 bronze medals in this Asian Games.

    Jyothi and Deotal's gold also made this the best-ever campaign at the Games by the Indian archers. Their best-ever effort in archery was three medals in 2014 in Incheon. In the 19th Games, India have already ensured four medals. They have three more medals confirmed in the individual events of archery, two of which can be gold. The finals of these two events will take place later.

    More medals guaranteed but can India get to 100?

    India have two assured medals in the squash doubles event and two more from boxing which means their medal count is certain to be 78 even if they don't manage to get any other podium finish.

    The shooting and athletics contingents have been the biggest contributors to India's best-ever Asian Games campaign. India have got 22 medals in shooting and 23 so far in athletics, with a few more events including Neeraj Chopra's javelin throw final still to go in the track and field.

    India are currently fourth in medal tally behind China, Japan, and South Korea who all have won more than 100 medals. China, in fact, are nearing 300.

    Notably, India's highest-ever ranking in the Asian Games was in the inaugural edition when they finished No.2 in the standings at New Delhi with 15 gold, 16 silver and 20 bronze

    With wrestling, hockey (men and women), men's cricket, badminton(singles and doubles), archery (recurve team and individual) squash (doubles), boxing, kabaddi (men and women), and athletics still to go, India could well dream of getting more than 90 medals at the Hangzhou Games.

    Asian Games: Can India touch 100 medals? Yes, but wrestlers hold the key

    India began these Asian Games with the target of 100 medals. It might have been a tagline for the broadcaster but soon enough it became the topic of conversation: Will Iss baar sau paar happen? The number seemed unrealistic in the first few days of the Games but, with three days of events to go, they have already comfortably gone past their best-ever Asian Games medal tally of 70 from the 2018 Asian Games - and are making a serious push for 100.

    Here's what the Indian contingent needs to do during the rest of the Hangzhou Asian Games to achieve the century.
    India's current official medal count: 83

    Guaranteed medals with final rounds left to play


    Squash - 1

    Saurav Ghosal plays in the men's singles final on Thursday afternoon and the veteran looks to turn his fifth Asian Games men's singles medal into a first-ever gold medal.

    Compound Archery - 3

    Abhishek Verma will face Ojas Pravin Deotale in the final of the men's individual event on Saturday, so India will split the gold and silver medals there. The same day, Jyothi Surekha Vennam will be in the women's individual final and will win gold or silver.

    Kabaddi - 2

    Both the Indian men and women have qualified for the semifinals, and in the absence of bronze medal playoffs in Kabaddi, both teams are guaranteed to win a medal.

    Bridge - 1

    The Indian men's team continues their final against Hong Kong on Friday and will come back from Hangzhou with at least a silver medal.

    Men's Hockey - 1

    The Indian men's team face off against Japan in the final on Friday in their attempt to regain the Asian Games gold medal and qualify for the Olympics.

    Badminton - 1

    HS Prannoy won India's first men's singles medal at the Asian Games since 1982, and has his semifinal to follow on Friday. He will be looking to go all the way, but will finish with at least a bronze medal.
    India's medal count after guaranteed medals added - 92
    What India need to do in remaining events


    Badminton

    Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty play their men's doubles quarterfinal on Thursday evening and could add to India's medal tally, as all semifinalists in badminton are guaranteed at least a bronze medal.

    Maximum Possible Medals - 1

    Men's Cricket

    Ruturaj Gaikwad's men face Bangladesh in the semifinal, where a win will add to India's medal tally. Even if India lose to Bangladesh in the semifinal, they will have another chance to win a medal in the bronze medal playoff.

    Maximum Possible Medals - 1

    Women's Hockey

    Janneke Schopmann's side face China in the semifinal on Thursday, and much like the men's cricket team, they will have two chances at winning a medal, with either the final or bronze medal playoff to follow.

    Maximum Possible Medals - 1

    Chess



    After Round 6, both the Indian men's and women's team were in second place. But there are three more rounds of chess left to play for both teams. If they can retain their position on the table, then India will have two more medals in their tally.

    Maximum Possible Medals - 2

    Archery

    Aditi Gopichand Swami will play the bronze medal match in the women's individual event on Saturday, while both the men's and women's recurve teams will be in action on Friday, looking to emulate the feats achieved by the compound archers.

    Maximum Possible Medals - 3

    Wrestling

    Indian wrestlers are in four bronze medal bouts on Thursday - Antim Panghal, Pooja Gehlot, Mansi and Naveen will all look to win medals. Bajrang Punia, Deepak Punia and Aman Sehrawat begin their Asian Games campaigns on Friday.

    Maximum Possible Medals - 11

                        “He was the most prodigious personification of all human inferiorities. He was an utterly incapable, unadapted, irresponsible, psychopathic personality, full of empty, infantile fantasies, but cursed with the keen intuition of a rat or a guttersnipe. He represented the shadow, the inferior part of everybody’s personality, in an overwhelming degree, and this was another reason why they fell for him.”
