Pakistan Bags 21 Medals in Asian Indoor & Martial Arts Games

After a stupendous opening day of the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, Pakistan maintained a good run for the rest of the tournament.


Pakistan ended their journey at the event with a total of 21 medals, which included 2 Gold medals, 3 Silver medals and 16 Bronze medals.

The tournament was majorly dominated by Turkmenistan, who won 245 medals, 89 of which were gold medals. Following Turkmenistan at the top were China and Iran with 97 (42 gold) and 118 (36 gold) medals respectively.

Gold Medals

Following a remarkably poor wrestling display, Pakistan made quite an impression when Rafiq Siddiq and Shahzeb Nawaz Janjua won the gold medal for their country in the ju-jitsu’s men duo.

The other gold medal was registered by the 4x400m relay team pictured below:
