It was a forgettable experience on the fifth day of the ongoing Asian Games 2018 where the Indians missed out on four medals as they lacked the killer instinct in rowing. The team highlighting the likes of Sawarn Singh, Dattu Bhokanal, Om Prakash and Sukhmeet Singh came through with flying colours as they clocked 6:17.13 to win the gold medal in men’s quadruple sculls.

Indians were so good in their approach that they were well ahead of the hosts Indonesia that clocked (6:20.58). Thailand follows next on the list as they clocked (6:22.41) in the quadruple sculls. Before managing to clinch the top prize, India won two bronze medals in rowing.

Credits to Rohit Kumar and Bhagwan Singh for displaying a great deal of energy in the lightweight double sculls after Dushyant sparked off the day with a clinical third-place finish in lightweight single sculls.
