indian women triumph in athletics at the asiad!

nov 26th, 2010

woman of the games:

ashwini chidananda akkunji, gold: 400m hurdles, gold: 4x400m where she repeated her stunning pullaway in the third leg at the CWG

second best:

preeja sreedharan, gold: 10,000m, silver: 5,000m

third best:

kavita raut, silver: 10,000m, bronze: 5,000m

all three of them unheralded and unfancied. 

personally, i am a big fan of the athletics events, which i consider the glamor events. 

such a relief all the indian attention didn't go to cricket!
