The recently concluded Asian Games 2014 held in Incheon, South Korea made a lot of Indian sportsperson grab headlines for their performances that made the nation proud.
With the conclusion of the XXIV Asiad, India was placed eighth in the medal tally. India had 11 Gold, 9 silver and 37 bronze medals to their tally which made a total of 57 medals. Although, the overall medal tally of India went down as compared to XXIII Asiad but still it was considered a valiant effort by the Indian front to produce such results without their entire fire-power.
These games also had controversies go hand in hand for India. Be it Sarita Devi’s refusal to take the medal after being done injustice or the 4×400 metre relay (women) team’s ouster on the Indian officials after winning the gold medal; these games had it all.
