On the 3rd day of 18th Asian Games which are underway in Jakarta, Indonesia, the tally of medals won by Indian athletes entered double figures on Tuesday while the hunt for more will continue on Day 4. So far, India has won 3 Gold, 3 Silver and 4 Bronze medals. Like the first two days, it was a good show by Indian athletes on Day 3 of the 18th Asian Games. Making the nation proud, the Women’s Indian Hockey team thrashed Kazakhstan by 21-0, creating the history. While on the other side, wrestler Divya Kakran won the Bronze for the nation in 68kg freestyle wrestling. Speaking on winning a Bronze, Divya Kakran said, “I come from a family which sometimes couldn’t even afford milk & today I won a medal here. Today I was 3rd, then I will be 2nd & one day the 1st. I’ll give my best in Tokyo Olympics & win a medal.”

It has been a very good two days for Indian Hockey as earlier on Day 2, the men’s Hockey team won against Indonesia by 17-0 and on Tuesday (today) the women’s hockey team created the history after it won against Kazakhstan by 21-0.
