Asian Athletics: Tintu Luka Takes Gold

Share

As curtains came down on the Asian Athletics championship, the Indian contingent wrapped itself in glory. With 4 gold, 5 silver and 4 bronze medals, India finished on the third slot in the medals tally, behind China (15 Gold,13 Silver,13 Bronze) and Qatar (7 Gold, 2 Silver, 1 Bronze). Tintu Luka participated with gusto and verve to take gold in 400 metres while Jinson Johnson bagged a silver in 800 metres.

In the 200m sprint, Dharambir Singh won the bronze in the men’s category. Srabani Nanda also won the bronze medal in the women’s category. Here’s a detailed report of how Indians fared on the final day.

Tintu Luka: Golden Sprint

Luka’s Maiden International Gold

PT Usha’s golden girl Tintu Luka clocked 2:01.53 seconds to emerge at the helm in the 400 metres event. The 26-years-old qualified for the Beijing World Championships to be held in August with the win. However, the Keralite couldn’t make the cut for the Rio Olympics, narrowly missing the mark of 2:01.00 seconds.

Army Man Johnson Takes Silver

Federation Cup double gold medalist Jinson Johnson cornered glory by clinching silver in 800 metres. He clocked 1:49.69 seconds to finish behind Qatar’s Musaab Abdelrehman Bala (1:49.40).

Dharambir Singh and Srabani Nanda Clinch Bronze

Dharmbir Singh broke Anil Kumar’s 15 year old National record in the 200 metres event with a bronze winning performance at the Wuhan Sports Centre. The Haryana sprinter stopped the clocks at 20.66 seconds to breach Kumar’s record of 20.73 seconds.

Srabani Nanda put behind her disappointing outing in the 100 metres event (she finished fifth in 11.48 seconds) to take bronze in 200 metres (23.54 seconds). She was also a part of the 4 x 100 metres team, with Sini Sahadevan, Dutee Chand and MG Padmini, which finished fourth.

China Denies India Second Gold

In the 4×400 metres relay event, defending champion India was stunned by hosts China. The team, comprising of Jisna Mathew, Tintu Luka, Debashree Majumdar and Machettira Raju clocked 3:33.81 seconds to take silver.

Other Results

Hopes were dashed in the 400 metres event where Rajeev Arokya finished at a disappointing seventh position. The men’s 4×400 metres relay team, of which Arokya, Sajin V, Dharun A and Sachin Roby were a part, could manage only a fourth place finish (3:05.14 seconds).

Summary

India opened its account smoothly with Inderjeet Singh taking gold in shotput with a record breaking throw on the first day. Things reached a crescendo on Day 4 (6/5/2015), with two golds coming its way, and finished off with a bang today. However with the World Championships just around the corner, the Indian athletes will need to exceed their current performances to make a mark.
