Asian Athletics Championship, Day 2 events: Sudha Singh in Women's Steeplechase final, India's relay teams and more

India enjoyed a wonderful second day at the Asian Athletics Championship as they maintained their stranglehold on the top spot of medal's tally. Indian athletes won four gold, two silver and two bronze medals on Day 2 to take India's overall tally to 15 medals.

Day 3 represents another chance for Indian athletes to add to the medals won on the first two days. Indian 4x100m women's relay team which will feature crowd favourite Dutee Chand and Olympian Srabani Nanda will be in action in the final along with Sudha Singh who will vie for a medal in the women's 3000m steeplechase final. Jinson Johnson who participated in Rio Olympics last year will look to qualify for the men's 800m final.
