KICK­ING UP A STORM

India Today - - ASIAN GAMES -

In­dia got its first medal, a bronze, in sepak takraw, which is best de­scribed as play­ing volleyball with legs, head and torso. The men’s team beat Iran to make it to the semis where they lost to even­tual cham­pion Thai­land. Hope­fully the re­sult will make the In­dian Olympic As­so­ci­a­tion of­fi­cially recog­nise the sport.
