INDIA STRIKES GOLD!!

It was an eventful day for India at the 17th Asian Games being held in Incheon,Korea today.Two gold medals,two different departments,two different teams,same goal,but only one nation–INDIAAAAA INDIA!!! Hockey and Relay Gold helped India climb to 9th position at the Asian Games 2014..πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

Indian hockey team had to face their arch-rivals Pakistan in the finals.These two teams were meeting in the finals after a long gap of 32 years. Also India struck gold after 16 years.The last time they won was in the 1998 games held in Bangkok.The last time these two teams played, Pakistan had thrashed India 7-1.This thought must have definitely crossed the men in blue’s minds,but they did not let history repeat.At the end of the stipulated time both the teams were tied at 1-1.The winner had to be decided by penalty shootout.Indians had the last laugh,they scored 4 goals against Pakistan’s 2….The end result is what makes us all proud-Gold at the Asian Games and and and, a DIRECT ENTRY into the next Olympics to be held at Rio.That’s a double bonanza for Indian hockey team todayπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„

Just sometime after this historic win, Indians got another reason to celebrate Gold in Women’s relay.This team had won the gold at the last Asian Games too and they repeated the feat this time too.Incredible ladies!!πŸ‘Œ

Two days are left for the Games to get over.Hopefully by that time, India will climb another one or two positions in the table.India is assured of two more gold or silver medals in the team events,as both men’s and women’s kabbadi teams have reached the finals.So all the sports fans,keep calm and support India!!πŸ˜œπŸ‘
