10-0, -48.24, 0.420%: India’s Day 5 at Asian Games defined by numbers



The fourth day’s headline tally is 25 – this is how India’s medal tally at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games currently stands. But ESPN India picked 10 unique numbers that really helped define India’s day on Thursday, September 28.

10 and 10

Imagine needing perfection, twice — at the very last chance — to win gold. Imagine nailing perfection.

Men’s pistol last two shots: After Arjun Singh Cheema shot 9 in his final shot, India needed to make no mistake to beat China to win the gold, and that’s what Sarabjot Singh and Shiva Narwal did, scoring 10 in their final shot. This took India’s total to 533, just 1 point ahead of China’s total.


Uzbekistan’s Oksana Chusovitina is a gymnastics legend. He is still competing 31 years after winning Olympic gold at the 1992 Olympics. He is now 48 years old and still gives his younger competitors a run for their money. He was 0.150 away from a medal at Hangzhou 2023 when he vaulted to a score of 13.383, just 0.150 behind third-placed Yu Linmin’s 13.533. Meanwhile, India’s Pranati Nayak is ranked 8th with a score of 12.350.


India vs Mongolia in the pre-quarters of the women’s badminton team event was one of the most one-sided contests of the Games. So much so, that Mongolia scored only 12 points in 3 matches (6 games) against PV Sindhu (who lost 5 points), Asmita Chaliha (5) and Anupama Upadhyay (2).

There is dominance, and this was everything.


India swam 8:37.58 to break their national record in the final of the women’s 4x200m freestyle relay (which they had set in the heats) but put it in context given how far they were from eventual gold medalists China. .. who finished 48.24 seconds ahead of them.


A six-minute spell was enough to end India’s football hopes at the Asian Games as the men’s team crashed out of the competition after brilliant braces from Mohammad Maran in the 51st and 57th minutes.


If Nishant Dev’s punch knocked out Vietnam’s Phuoc Tung Bui in a knockout win over KO was stunning (right hook to the jaw), what made it even more incredible was its speed. At one minute and 38 seconds into the nine-minute bout, Nishant dropped Phuoc to the mat.


How do you make up for it before losing a second-set lead and going into a super tiebreaker? Why did it win 10-0, of course. Saketh Maineni and Ramkumar Ramanathan were clutch when they needed to be, and boy did they turn on the style when they did.

11-13, 10-12, 3-11

Sathyan Gnanasekaran and Manika Batra were leading Singapore’s Clarence Chiu and Jian Zheng in game 2 when they collapsed in rather spectacular fashion. They lost the third game 11–13 and the fourth 10–12 before completely collapsing in the pivotal fifth game 3–11.


Roshibina Devi became India’s most successful wushu athlete from Jakarta 2018 after adding her bronze in the category by winning silver in the 60kg wushu sanda.


Anush Aggarwala, on Etro, won India’s first individual dressage medal in Asian Games history with 73.030%. She was close to silver, however, 0.420% behind Jacqueline Siew of Hong Kong.
