Odisha is proving to be a lucky hunting ground for athletes from India as the country strengthened its place at the top of the medal tally with a total of 15 medals at the end of Day 2 of Asian Athletics Championships 2017.

The list includes six gold medals, two more than China as of now, and India needed only two days to surpass their 2015 tally of 13 medals.

On a soggy day on Friday at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar, it was raining gold for India despite lacklustre showing from favourites of the day -- Amiya Kumar Mallick and Dutee Chand.

Haryana's Nirmala Sheoran won the first gold of the day by racing to title in the Women's' 400m, which was shortly followed by Muhammad Anas winning the Men's 400m event.

Jisna Mathew won a bronze in the Women's 400m event while Rajiv Arokia won the silver in Men's event.

1500m was also dominated by India as Ajay Kumar and PU Chitra won the gold in the Men's and Women's category, making it a total of four yellow metals on Friday.

Looking ahead, Tintu Luka, who impressed at 2016 Rio Games, will be involved in the 800m heats in the morning session, whereas the focus will be on the Women's relay team, who will be running the 4x100m final in the evening.

[Doordarshan Sports will provide live TV coverage of the event, live streaming will be available on DD National's official Youtube Channel]
