After a slow morning at the shooting range, rowing brought back India smiles as Dushyant Chauhan clinched the bronze medal in the men’s lightweight single sculls at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon. Dushyant however had a huge chance to win gold as he led from 500m but strong gusts of wind and rain affected his lane the most.

Meanwhile in Lightweight Men’s Double Sculls, Indian pair of Roopendra Singh and Manjeet Singh finished 4th behind rowing pairs from Japan, Hong Kong and China. In other results from the lake, Sanjukta Dung Dung and Tarunikha Pratap finished 5th in the Women’s Pair final.

Commendable Effort By Dushyant

This was extremely commendable effort from the Armyman as he had taken up the sport just two years back and this was his first international event.

Dushyant completed the 2,000 metre race in seven minutes and 26.57 seconds. Lok Kwan Hoi of Hong Kong and South Korea’s Hakbeom Lee took the gold and silver respectively.

At the Chungju Tangeum Lake Rowing Center on Wednesday morning, it was eventual gold medallist Lok Kwan Hoi who set the pace till the first 500m. Dushyant took up the challenge and with a brilliant pace overtook Hoi to cross the 1km mark ahead of him.

The 21-year-old rower from Haryana looked set to lay his hands on the yellow metal till then. But with inclement weather and slight fatigue creeping in, Dushyant lost his massive opportunity as the rower from Hong Kong finally overtook him to take the gold. Dushyant narrowly lost the silver medal too as Lee Hakbeom of Korea managed to get past him in the final 25m of the 2000m race.

‘’I was confident of the gold but my lane was the most affected by the strong wind. However I am happy to win the bronze medal,” said Dushyant.

So with age on his side one can see a promising career for Dushyant Chauhan as he will look to learn from his performance here at the Asiad
