India’s Ashwini Akkunji, Mandeep Kaur, Sini Jose and Manjeet Kaur celebrate after winning gold in the women’s 4×400 metre relay during the 16th Asian Games 2010 at Aoti Main Stadium in Guangzhou, China, on Friday. PTIIndia created history by recording their best-ever performance in Asian Games with 64 medals, including a record 14 gold, with star boxer Vijender Singh providing the icing on the cake by bringing the last yellow metal on the penultimate day in Guangzhou on Friday.The men’s and women’s kabaddi teams expectedly maintained their supremacy by clinching the gold before the women’s 4x400m quartet and Vijender (75kg) bagged a yellow metal each on the most productive day for India in the mega-event.With the addition of 11 more medals on Friday, India’s tally climbed to a record 14 gold, 17 silver and 33 bronze (total 64), the biggest ever haul in the Asian Games so far, to jump to the sixth place.India’s best medal haul till date was recorded in the 1982 Games in Delhi when they had won 13 gold, 19 silver and 25 bronze for an overall tally of 57. India had finished 10 in the last edition of the Games in Doha with a tally of 10-17-26.India have now completed their engagements in the Games and their final standing will depend after the completion of the six events — men’s and women’s marathon, men’s and women’s doubles sepaktakraw finals and women’s volleyball final — on Saturday.China leads the medal table with 197 gold, 117 silver and 98 bronze (total 412), followed by South Korea (74-63-91) and Japan (47-73-94) at second and third respectively.advertisementWhile the kabaddi teams did not sweat much to keep their reputation intact in rather lopsided finals, Vijender made amends for his bronze-finish in Commonwealth Games with a gold here while compatriots Santosh Kumar (64) and Manpreet Singh (91kg) settled for a silver each.The women’s 4x400m relay team also lived up to the expectations as they defended the gold they won in the 2006 Doha Asian Games.Long distance runners Preeja Sreedharan, who had earlier won a gold in women’s 10,000m race, and Kavita Raut had their moment of glory by winning the silver and bronze medals respectively in the women’s 5000m event.Rollersports fetched India a couple of unexpected bronze medals with Anup Kumar Yama bagging one in men’s single free skating before combining with Avani Panchal to finish third in the pairs skating event. The Indian men’s chess team also contributed a bronze.Much was expected from the kabaddi teams to provide the boost to the gold haul and they did not disappoint.The men’s kabaddi team maintained their impeccable track record by winning the gold medal for the sixth time on the trot, demolishing Iran with a facile 37-20 margin what turned out to be a lop-sided contest.The script unfolded on expected lines for the women’s kabaddi team also as they completed a memorable Asian Games debut by clinching the gold medal with a comprehensive win over Thailand in the final.The Indians beat Thailand 28-14 in a dominating performance to clinch the inaugural women’s kabaddi gold of the Asian Games.World number one Vijender added another feather on his cap by clinching an unprecedented second boxing gold for India in the Asian Games to round off the best ever campaign by the country’s pugilists at the quadrennial mega-event.It was sweet revenge for Olympic and World Championship bronze-medallist Vijender when he blanked reigning world champion Abbos Atoev of Uzbekistan 7-0. Atoev had beaten the 25-year-old Indian at the World Championship semifinals last year but Vijender wiped off the disappointment with a performance fitting the hype around him.The dashing six-footer Indian crouched a bit and took full advantage of his long reach and taller height against Atoev, whom he had beaten in Asian Championships last year.Hitting straight and clear, Vijender, who was a bronze-medallist at the 2006 Asian Games, defended stoutly, seldom letting Atoev to attack.However, V Santhosh Kumar (64kg) and Manpreet Singh (91kg) settled for silver medals after losing in the finals.While Santhosh lost 1-16 to Kazakhstan’s Daniyar Yeleussinov in finals, Manpreet went down 1-8 to Mohammad Ghossoun of Syria to take India’s silver tally to three in boxing after Dinesh Kumar (81kg) had finished second yesterday.The athletics team also ended their campaign with a bagful of medals with the women’s 4x400m relay quartet winning the gold to bring down curtains with a bang.India emerged from the track and field events with five gold, two silver and four bronze medals, one of their best efforts in Asian Games history, though below their performance in 2002 Busan Asian Games where they had a 7-6-5 medal haul.advertisementHaving started their campaign with a golden double in the women’s 10,000m and 3,000m steeplechase through Preeja Sreedharan and Sudha Singh on the first day, the 4x400m relay team of Manjeet Kaur, Sini Jose, AC Ashwini and Mandeep Kaur ended the campaign by clinching gold in 3 minutes 29.02secs.Kazakhstan took the silver in 3:30.03 while China claimed the bronze in 3:30.89.With inputs from PTI
Sawarn Singh Virk rows at the Chungju Tanhgeum lake on Thursday.Englishman Steve Redgrave was to rowing what Usain Bolt is to sprinting – there have been many great athletes in their respective sports but no one can match their Olympic achievements.These are the people who inspire youngsters sitting in remote areas of the globe to take up these sports and help them dream of Olympic gold medals.Sawarn Singh Virk is no different. A huge fan of Redgrave, Sawarn gave up his first love, volleyball, to take up rowing in 2009. Five years later, he won his maiden Asian Games medal on Thursday, in the men’s single sculls event, though it wasn’t the lustrous gold medals he saw around Redgrave’s neck but India’s hoodoo at these Games, a bronze.Soon after, it was another bronze for the country in the men’s eight event, behind China and Japan on a day when the weather was pleasant and the wind didn’t cause much trouble.Indian rower Sawarn Singh Virk won his maiden Asian Games medal in the men’s single sculls event.It’s not easy for rowers to stay motivated. Compared to indoor sports where spectators egg you on, these men and women have to keep goading themselves and hope for the best in open water.At the picturesque Chungju Tanhgeum Lake Rowing Centre, which is a three hour drive from the main city, Sawarn grew in stature as an international rower after first getting noticed when he qualified for the 2012 London Olympics.advertisementBefore leaving for Incheon, Sawarn had spoken about wanting to win gold this time and emulating Bajrang Lal Takhar’s achievement in Guangzhou four years ago, but his best efforts were thwarted by Iran’s Mohsen Shadinagadeh and Kim Dongyong of South Korea. Incidentally, Sawarn used a boat bearing Bajrang’s name.Sawarn said after the event: “I was aiming to win gold here but got the bronze. I wish to train hard and do well in the Rio Olympics.”Members of the men’s eight team with their bronze medals.This is a sport where muscle power, concentration, proper breathing pattern and the ability to produce a final burst matters immensely. One look at Sawarn’s chiselled frame tells you that he has the physical tools to do the job.Sawarn pulled hard to lead the field in the first 500 metres, completing the distance in 1 minute and 43.86 seconds. Over the next 500 metres, too, he led the way, conceding just three hundredths of a second to the Iranian.It was the third 500m section where Mohsen overtook him, and by the end of the 2000m race, Sawarn had lost so much steam that Kim not only overtook him but finished about four and a half seconds ahead of him. Sawarn’s final time was 7 minutes and 10.65 seconds, and he later collapsed due to exhaustion.It all boils down to preparation, and the fact remains that India’s improving rowers still train at a place that is a world away from the Korean facility – the Hussain Sagar Lake in Hyderabad. The rowers and coach Ismail Baig have got them some success thus far, but to take the next step, better facilities and more focused training are required.In a sport like this, recovery plays a huge role and that’s where physios and trainers are needed to help these athletes.

North Carolina held off 1-seed Virginia in tonight’s ACC semifinal, and if Duke can take care of business against Notre Dame later on, the two in-state rivals will meet for the league’s tournament title on Saturday. If so, Blue Devils AD Kevin White may want to find another seat.White, sitting on press row at the Greensboro Coliseum, was completely taken out by North Carolina big man Brice Johnson near the end of the game.

Oregon State’s Jarmal Reid went one step further – however. He’s in trouble for it today.Reid, during Oregon State’s contest against Utah Sunday night, was unhappy after being bumped following a steal. After falling down and seeing that no foul had been called, he intentionally stuck his foot out to trip the referee. He was promptly ejected.Jarmal Reid of Oregon State was ejected for tripping an official.
