Writing Our Own Destiny Let’s Support Our Athletes In The Asian Games A Tata Salt Tribute

Any South Korean athletes who win Olympic medals or Asian Games titles are exempt from the usual mandatory military service.

The "Taeguk Warriors" now face Japan in Saturday's final - with Son knowing victory would mean he avoids having to leave club team Tottenham for a lengthy period to complete his service.

"Back then (in 2002) I was an assistant coach, but now I'm a head coach", Park said after Vietnam's quarterfinal win over Syria set up a semifinal match against the South Koreans. "We fight for that, I don't need to say anything, you know, I'm ready for that.to make history".

Yuki Koike of Japan won the men's 200 in 20.23 in a photo finish, beating Yang Chun-han of Taiwan.

Ng failed a test for the weight-loss drug sibutramine at the Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur in August 2017.

While the South Koreans struggled to contain Haddadi, players like Mohammad Hassanzadeh and Behnam Yakhchaldehkordi also started to get buckets and South Korea entered halftime trailing 40-28. Bunga Nyimas, who is 12, placed fourth for Indonesia.

China has now won the men's team gold in seven straight Asian Games. and South Korea has been the silver medalist in all of them.

China's Wang Qingling won silver with 5954 points, while Japan's Yuki Yamasaki took bronze with a tally of 5873 points.

After 352 finals, China had an nearly insurmountable lead in the medal standings with 101 golds and 217 overall.

China's second diving gold medal today came in the men's synchronised 10m platform with Chen Aisen and Yang Hao comfortably triumphing on 466.47 points.

Meanwhile, Noa Takahashi of Japan outplayed her Chinese Taipei opponent Cheng Chuling opponent 4-3 to win the gold medal in women's category.

Hwang Ui-jo, the leading scorer at the Asian Games, doubled Korea's lead in the 27th minute. Extremely proud moment for the entire Indian Table tennis fraternity as we won Bronze medal in Asian Games for the first ever time!

After the game, Park was philosophical.
