Indian rowers put up a phenomenal show on Day 6 of the Asian Games 2018, winning three medals (one gold, two bronze) to take the India’s medal tall to 21 (5 Gold, 4 Silver & 12 Bronze).

Dushyant, one of the India’s best medal hope won the bronze medal in the men’s lightweight singles scull event. This was followed up with another third-placed finish in the men’s lightweight double sculls finals courtesy of rowers Rohit Kumar and Bhagwan Singh.

However, an historical gold medal came from men’s quadruple sculls event where the Indian team featuring Sawarn Singh, Dattu Bhokanal, Om Prakash and Sukhmeet Singh bag India’s first gold of the day at Asiad.

It was India’s first ever gold medal in the men’s quadruple sculls, an event that has only featured in the Games since 2014.
