India won its first gold medal in the 18th edition of the Asian Games and it was once again Bajrang Punia who continues his good form by winning gold in the Men’s 65kg freestyle event at Jakarta.
In what seemed to be a rough day for India, it was Bajrang who stood tall as he defeated Japan’s Takatani Daichi 11-8.
