We committed too many unforced errors and paid the price. We did not keep things simple. We tried to show our Indian skills and by doing that we lost the momentum.

India won four medals on Day 11: two golds, one silver, and one bronze. Arpinder Singh and Swapna Barman won gold medals in Men's Triple Jump and Women's Heptathlon, respectively. Dutee Chand came second in Women's 200m and won a silver while Manika Batra and Achanta Sharath Kamal settled for bronze in the Table Tennis Mixed Doubles after being bested by the Chinese in the semi-finals. On day 12, India will have the chance to further bolster their medal tally. Once again, Athletics will be a prime opportunity for the Indians who have Manjit Singh and Jinson Johnson in the Men's 1500m final while Lakshaman Govindan participates in Men's 5000m final. The Indian men also have their Hockey semifinal match against Malaysia.

Represented by 804 athletes and officials, the Indian contingent will aim to better the showing at the previous Asiad in Incheon, South Korea, where they finished eighth with 11 gold, 10 silver and 36 bronze medals on Asian Games Medal Tally. The best performance by India at the Asian Games came at the 2010 edition in Guangzhou, China where they finished sixth with 14 gold, 17 silver and 34 bronze. This year, around 12,000 athletes from 45 countries will compete in 40 disciplines. The main thrust of the Indian challenge is expected to come from athletics, wrestling, boxing and shooting. It will be interesting to see how many medals Indians will bag in the 18th Asian Games.
