In the ongoing 2018 Asian games, India has won 13 gold medals, and is in the 8th position currently. In the previous 36 years, every other country that has been participating in Asian games has been witnessing an increase in the number of gold medals, while India alone does not see an increase in gold medals. In 1982, India has been the host of Asian games and in that edition of Asian games, India won 57 medals, securing the 5th position, and just like the usual belief of host nation winning more, in 1951 and 1982, India won more than 50 medals.

 


This time though India is set to clinch more than 64 medals this is not an improvement in reality. Even with more number of games introduced, India has not been winning medals. In 1982 147 games were held, while now there are 465 events, and countries like China, Japan and South Korea are constantly improving, with an increase of 30 to 150%.

 Is India fading in Asian games?

While all the other Asian countries are constantly rising in the medals tally with every edition, India alone has not shown good improvement in Asian games.
