Gold in Hockey for India and Women too clinch one in 4 x 400M relay

What a moment it is ………. After watching India beat South Korea and entering Finals of Kabbadi this morning ……. The much awaited golden moment came.

GOLD in HOCKEY  …. Yes, India beats Pakistan ……. After 1-1 in the play, India beat Pak 4-2 in Penalties and wins gold………….. and a place in Rio Olympics.

With about 5 minutes go, India earned a penalty corner, their second one – but Rupinderpal could not milk the opportunity as it boiled down to penalty.  Gurwinder Chandi scored the 1st; Sreejesh saved one from Haseem Abdul Khan; Rupinder scored; Waqas too netted……….then Manpreet’s goal was disallowed – I could not make out how… 

Few minutes later,   Priyanka Pawar, Tintu Lukka, Mandeep Kaur, Poovamma Raju Machettira clock 3:28.68 to win gold for India in Women's 4 x 400m Relay.

Earlier, PT Usha’s pet Tintu Luka came so close but ended up losing gold settling for Silver in women's 800 metres final race.  Margarita set a new Asian Games record of  1:59.02 seconds  while Tintu timed her season's best of 1:59.19.  last time at  Guangzhou too Tintu led the pack right from the start but could not keep pace in the last 50m to finish third.
