India clinched two gold medals within a gap of 10 minutes on Day 13 in Incheon to break back into top 10 at the 2014 Asian Games.

Team India are currently ninth in the medals tally with nine golds and nine silvers. Let's take a look at Day 13's highlights.


India beat Pakistan 4-2 on penalties to win gold in hockey for the first time since 1998. The regulation time ended 1-1 and PR Sreejesh pulled off two brilliant saves in the shootout to give India the much-awaited gold and direct qualification to the Rio Olympics.


Indian women won the 4x400m relay in magnificent fashion just minutes after the hockey triumph, to give the country its second gold of the day. The team constituting Priyanka Pawar, Tintu Lukka, Mandeep Kaur and M Poovamma Raju set a new Asian Games record, by clocking 3:28.68, to raise the bar set by India in Guangzhou 2010.

Inderjeet Singh won bronze in the men's shot put, with an attempt of 19.63m. Sultan Abdulmajeed E of Saudi Arabia clinched gold, while Om Prakash Singh Karhana finished ninth.


Vikas Krishan won bronze after losing to Zhanibek Alimkhanuly of Kazakhstan in the middleweight semifinal. Satish Kumar also won bronze after being defeated by Ivan Dychko of Uzbekistan in the men's super heavyweight boxing semifinal.

Meanwhile, L Sarita Devi, who refused the bronze during the medal ceremony, has finally accepted her medal following a hearing between Olympic Council of Asia and India's officials.


Indian men hammered South Korea36-25 to enter the kabaddi final, while the women followed suit with an easy win over Thailand. India are overwhelming favourites in the event and nothing less than gold is expected from both teams.
