Vinesh completely dominated the contest, taking a 4-0 lead initially before stretching it further to 6-2 to pocket the yellow metal. Vinesh Phogat hardly broke into a sweat in her earlier semi-final encounter against Daulatbike Yakshimuratova of Uzbekistan, as the referees took just 75 seconds to declare the Indian the winner by technical superiority (10-0). Vinesh, who beat Irie in the Asian Championships semi-final earlier this year, started cautiously before pinning the Japanese grappler down to take four quick points.

Adding to the cheer was the defending gold-medalist India men’s hockey team’s 17-0 hammering of hosts Indonesia in its pool ‘A’ lung-opener. Teen shooter Saurabh Chaudhary clinched gold, while Abhishek Verma bagged bronze in men’s 10m air pistol shooting at the Asian Games 2018 in Jakarta on Tuesday. The 16-year-old Saurabh Chaudhary shot a total of 240.7 to claim the top honours at the JSC – Shooting Range. Saurabh Chaudhary’s show was also an Asian Games record in 10m air pistol event. Abhishek Verma shot a total of 219.3 to finish third on the podium. Tomoyuki Matsuda of Japan secured the silver with 239.7.
