India maintained its lead at the top of Asian Athletics Championships 2017 medal tally when Sudha Singh ran her hearts out to win the 3000m Steeplechase on Saturday, July 8, at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar, Odisha.

With seven golds, four silvers and nine bronzes, India have collected 20 medals, which is seven more than its tally reached in the previous edition. Athletics giant China, with 15 medals so far, will look to make use of the final day to stamp its authority over the rest.

The hosts, too, have a strong batch of athletes in action on the final day of the continental meet.

Neeraj Chopra in focus

All eyes will be junior world record holder Neeraj Chopra who will take the field for the Javelin Throw final in the evening session. The 19-year-old, who has a season's best throw of 85.63 that won him a ticket to Paris Diamond League last month, will be looking to smash the meet record of 83.27m set by Japan's Yukifumi Murakami in 2011.

Local favourite Dutee Chand, who won a bronze in Women's 100m, will feature in the women's 200m along with Srabani Nanda while Amiya Kumar Mallick, who has had a tough time, will look to qualify for the 200m final when he hits the track for the semi-final in the morning session. Tintu Luka will eye a medal in the 800m final.

Can G Lakshmanan bag his second gold?

Distance runner Lakshmanan, who won the Men's 5000m on the opening day, will be in action in the 10000m event, in which he collected silver in Wuhan, China, in 2015.

Heptathlon also reaches the final stages and India's Purnima Hembram is a serious contender for gold after some fine performances on Saturday.

Focus will also be on veteran Seema Punia, who will feature in the Discus Throw final in the evening. The 4x400 relay teams will also be in action.
