India won Gold Medal in Kabaddi

Asian game gold

Oct 3,Incheon: The Indian men's kabaddi team clinched its seventh successive gold medal at the Asian Games after coming from behind to beat a spirited Iran 27-25 in the summit clash here today.

The Indian team, which has been winning gold ever since the sport was introduced on the Asiad roster in 1990, was given a massive scare by Iran, who had finished runners-up in the 2010 edition as well.

The Indian women's kabaddi team notched up its second successive gold medal at the 17th Asian Games, beating Iran 31-21 in Incheon on Friday.

India thus maintained their supremacy in women's kabaddi, which made its Asiad debut in the previous edition in Guangzhou.
