History Made at 17 Asian Games at Incheon, Hockey and Relay.

In a heart stopping game of Hockey, Indian men's Hockey team defeated Pakistan in Penalty Shoot out by a score of 4-2. Some brilliant hockey and some not so brilliant display of play by Indian team resulted in 1-1 tie after one hour of play, which lead to Penalty shoot out.

While our players taking shots at Pakistan did superb work by out maneuvering Pakistan goalkeeper, the real hero of the shoot out was our goalkeeper Shreejesh who managed to Block most Paki attempts leading to this historic victory in Asian Games.

The Gold medal returned to Indian after a long gap of 18 years. Last we had won it in Asian Games was in 1996.

Even better was the show of our women's 400 m x 4 relay team. This team won the gold medal in his event for India but winning gold medal, though excellent achievement, is not the actual news.

Actual news is, they did it with a new Asian Games record an that is the NEWS, This is what TOI said on this victory,                                  "The quartet of Priyanka Panwar, Tintu Luka, Mandeep Kaur and M R Poovamma won an easy race in 3:28.68 to improve upon the earlier Games record of 3:29.02 which was also in the name of the gold-winning Indian team in 2010."                                                Bravo to both the teams. May the Success makes it a habit of coming your way in future too.
