Indian women’s kabaddi team wins gold in Asian Beach Games

Indian women’s kabaddi team wins gold  :

India bagged their first gold medal at the 5th Asian Beach Games with the women’s beach kabaddi team winning the title for the record fifth time in succession.

Indian beat Thailand 41-31 in a hard-fought summit clash at Bien Dong Park. The Indian women’s kabaddi team had been winning the gold since the inception of the biennial Games in 2008.

For Thailand, it was the fifth time in a row they had lost to India in a final, although there was some consolation in that the 10-point margin was the closest they had got to the all-conquering Indians in the four previous gold medal matches.

The Indian men’s beach kabaddi team, however, lost to arch-rivals Pakistan 28-30 in a nerve-wrecking final to settle for a silver. India had won gold in men’s beach kabaddi the 2008 and 2010 editions.

Amisha Tokas won a silver in women’s 70kg category Kurash (A form of wrestling originated in Uzbekistan) after Nguyen Thai Lan of Vietnam succeeded in the final. Manoj Kumar Majumdar won a bronze in beach bodybuilding up to 158 cm category. India has achieved 15th spot in the medal table headed by host Vietnam (25 gold, 22 silver, 27 bronze) and has won six medals (1 gold, 3 silver, 2 bronze).

The Don’t Give Up World Team  congratulates the team for bringing victory home and wishes them triumph in future endeavors.
