Swimmer Ikee Chasing Asian Games Record
Rikako Ikee is turning Jakarta’s Asian Games pool into her own golden pond. Every time she dives into the water, she comes out with another medal. The 18-year-old did it again Thursday, swimming the butterfly leg for the Japanese team that won the women’s 4x100-metre medley relay. The victory gave her a fifth gold and her seventh medal in Jakarta. Only North Korean shooter So Gin Man has tallied more at one Asian Games, winning eight medals, including seven gold, at the 1982 Asian Games. Ikee has one more race.
