World records and world firsts on day two of the Indonesian 2018 Asian Para Games

By : APC Media
Date : October 9, 2018

The athletics competition got underway at the Indonesian 2018 Asian Para Games today and it wasn’t long before the first world record was broken.

India’s Sandeep Sandeep threw 60.01m in the F42-44/61-64 Javelin to win his country’s first gold medal of the Games.

Later on in the afternoon session India again struck gold when Rakshitha Rahu won the women’s 1500m T11 but it was China and Uzbekistan who had the most successful opening day at the GBK Stadium with five gold medals apiece.

Uzbekistan also had a successful day in the Judo, where they shared the spoils evenly with Korea, winning two gold medals apiece.

The shooting para sport competition also got underway with Iran’s Sareh Javanmardi once again asserting her dominance in the sport with a Gold medal in the P4 mixed 50m Free Oistol SH1 event. In the women’s R2 10M Air Rifle Standing, where Bhutan’s Dem Kinley became the first shooter from Bhutan to compete at an Asian Para Games, it was a clean sweep of medals for the Chinese women. In the final medal event of the day, Thailand’s Mansing Wiraphron took the gold medal in the R1 men’s 10m Air Rifle standing SH1 final in an Asian Para Games record score of 246.9.

The first of two days of road cycling took place at the Sirkuit Internasional Sentul, a motor racing track. Despite Indonesia winning medals in seven out of the eight events, a gold medal proved elusive for them. Going into the day, gold medal hopes were on their cyclist, Immamuddin Muhammad Fadli, a former motorbike racer who lost a foot in an accident at the same circuit three years ago. Despite setting his heart on Gold he had to settle for silver behind Wei Guoping of China in the men’s ITT (C4) event.

Silver was the order of the day for Indonesia at the Table Tennis too when Ana Widyasari bagged second place in the women’s singles TT11. But it was again China’s day – they won five out of the eight gold medals with Korea taking two and Hong Kong one.

Perhaps the loudest venue today was the GBK Aquatic Centre where the performances of the Unified Korean Team and Indonesia’s Indriani Syuci had the crowd in full voice. The supporters of both competitors joined in with each other’s chanting, creating an amazing atmosphere for the athletes to perform to their best. And they didn’t disappoint with Syuci winning gold in the women’s 100m breaststroke SB14 and a few minutes later the Unified Korean Team making history with their bronze in the men’s 4 x 100m freestyle relay 34 points.

At the end of the second day of competition, China are stretching out their lead with 38 gold medals leaving Uzbekistan, Korea and Japan in the battle for second place. There are 95 medals being contested tomorrow (9 October) including 11 in Table Tennis. To follow the action live go to Paralympic.org
