Dutee Chand’s hopes of a gold medal double in sprints in women’s section of the track and field events of the 18th Asian Games were once again dashed by Odiong Edidiong of Bahrain who had reserved her best for the final to win her second gold in sprints on Wednesday.
With this gold medal triumph in 200 m, Odiong Edidiong avenged her semi finals defeat at hands of Dutee Chand.
For Dutee Chand, it was her second successive Silver medal of the games as she again finished a close second to her opponent from Bahrain. She had lost 100 m final earlier.
Earlier in the day Khushbir Kaur had finished fourth in women’s 20 km walk event while her team mate Boby Soumya was disqualified.
In men’s 20 km walk, both Indian entrants – Irfan Thodi Kolathum and Manish S Rawat – were also disqualified.
