The Chinese who were upsetting all the nations in the games with their unimaginable performance gulping down gold after gold in almost all the competitions.

Guangzhou, Asian Games,Day-12
Today, India which was very slow to move up the ladder in the medals tally had a sudden boost with three golds this sunday and to follow it up today, Thursday followed with another three gold medals which has put india in the 7th spot. two golds coming from 400 Mts hurdles men & women joseph abaham and ashwini respectively and 1 gold from boxing via vikash krishnan ,India is still under insurgence to become a sporting superpower and definitely shows improvement but not the kind of improvement China has shown throughout these years . India enters the penultimate day of the games with a higher chance to cross the 10 gold tally they won in Doha . India has a high chances of wining three more gold medals with two in kabbadi (men&women) and 5 boxers in the final with Vijendar being the favorite son of the land to win the gold and several other boxers are also prominent to win gold and now if India is not unlucky i would easily cross the 10 gold medal mark by a huge margin.
Let’s hope “all of India’s boxers and both the kabbadi teams to reign supreme”
