Asian Games 2023 Live Updates, Day 4: Curtain Call

And with this, we have come to the conclusion of Day 4.

Albeit it ended with a defeat in squash, it has been an exemplary day for India with eight medals added to the tally. Seven of those medals came in shooting – two gold, three silver and two bronze.

The highlight was Sift Kaur Samra, the student of medicine from Punjab, creating a new world record in the women's 50m 3P individual event.

Barring the shooters, there was another medal in sailing, taking India's tally to three on what was the last day for the sport in this competition. Vishnu Saravanan won a bronze medal in Men's Dinghy – ILCA7, courtesy of overall points, after his medal race was cancelled owing to inadequate wind for providing racing conditions.

Elsewhere, Nikhat Zareen continued her flawless run, while Roshibina Devi Naorem qualified for the final of women's 60kg category in Wushu.

She will be competing for a gold medal tomorrow, and so will be many other athletes. Like always, we will be bringing you all the live updates. But for now, call the curtains!
