Indian shooters will look to impress again by winning more medals at the Hangzhou Asian Games on Wednesday.

The 50-skeet event will feature men’s and women’s team and individual event finals. Women like Ashi Chowkse, Manini Kaushik and Sift Kaur Sarma will be in action in the 50m rifle 3 position event, which will include individual and team finals.

Shooters Ridham Sangwan, Esha Singh and Manu Bhaker will compete in the women’s 25m pistol rapid individual qualification, final and team final.

Indian shooters are in good form and should compete for multiple medals.

The women’s hockey team will start the campaign with a group match against Singapore on Wednesday.

There are also boxing, handball, table tennis, 3×3 basketball, tennis, sailing and swimming events scheduled throughout the day.

India added a gold medal and two silvers to their tally on Tuesday. Gold was a surprise as India won the medal in the equestrian team dressage event.

The team consisting of Divyakriti Singh astride Adrenaline Firfod, Hridoy Vipul Ched (KMXPro Emerald) and Anush Agarwala (ETRO) scored 209.205 percentage points en route to a top podium finish.

Sudipti Hajela was also part of the team, but only the top three scores counted in the event.

China finished second with 204.882 percentage points and Hong Kong finished with bronze with 204.852 points.

This is the first time in the history of the Games that India has won the team gold in the dressage event. Dressage’s last medal, a bronze, came in the 1986 edition. India last won gold in equestrian at the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi.

Neha Thakur, just 17, led the show with silver and Ebad Ali won bronze in the sailing event.

Neha Mei’s dinghy brought India its first medal of the day when she finished second in the ILCA-4 event. India’s second medal came in the men’s windsurfer RS:X event where Ali finished third with a net score of 52 points behind Thailand’s Nathaphong Phonopharat and Korea’s gold medalist Onwoo Cho.
