In a remarkable feat of skill and determination, the Indian duo of Ojas Pravin Deotale and Jyothi Surekha Vennam secured the gold medal in the archery mixed team compound event at the Asian Games 2023 in Hangzhou. This victory marked India’s 16th gold medal at the prestigious sporting event.

The outstanding performance by Ojas and Jyothi not only added another gold to India’s tally but also played a pivotal role in helping the nation surpass its medal count from the 2018 Asian Games. With this achievement, India now stands at 71 medals in total.

Notably, India has also equaled its record for the highest number of gold medals won at a single edition of the Asian Games.

As the competition continues, India eagerly anticipates the appearance of Neeraj Chopra, the reigning Olympic champion in javelin throw.

Earlier in the day, Indian athletes Ram Baboo and Manju Rani secured the bronze medal in the challenging 35km mixed race walking event, adding to India’s medal haul.

On the previous day, India’s medal count received a significant boost with six medals from the track and field events, bringing the overall tally to 69 medals.

In the current medal standings, India proudly holds the fourth position, with a collection of 15 gold, 26 silver, and 29 bronze medals.
