A formidable contingent of 655 Indian athletes is currently taking part in the prestigious Asian Games 2023, hosted in Hangzhou, the People’s Republic of China. This marks the 19th edition of this continental multisport event, which officially commenced on September 23 and is scheduled to conclude on October 8.
Originally planned for 2022, the quadrennial meet had to be postponed by a year due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. As Indian athletes assemble in Hangzhou, expectations are running high, especially considering their outstanding performance in the last edition in Jakarta in 2018.

At that time, a 570-member Indian squad achieved a historic feat by securing a total of 70 medals, which included 16 gold, 23 silver, and 31 bronze. With a larger contingent this year, there is an air of optimism for an even more remarkable medal tally.
Over the years, Indian athletes have been instrumental in boosting the country’s medal count at the Asian Games, contributing significantly with 254 medals out of a total of 672. Once again, track and field events are anticipated to take center stage at Hangzhou 2023, with India fielding its most substantial contingent ever in any sport, totaling 68 athletes.
The Indian athletics team in Hangzhou boasts distinguished athletes such as Neeraj Chopra, the reigning world, Olympic, and Asian Games champion in men’s javelin throw, Avinash Sable, the silver medalist in the Commonwealth Games men’s 3000m steeplechase, and Jyothi Yarraji, an emerging talent in women’s hurdles.
In a groundbreaking move, India is also making its debut in cricket at the Asian Games, with both men’s and women’s teams participating. Furthermore, football and hockey will see complete representation from India.

The boxing team, led by world champion Nikhat Zareen and Olympic medalist Lovlina Borgohain, along with the wrestling team, featuring Olympic medalist Bajrang Punia and Antim Panghal, are strong contenders for podium finishes. The shooting squad, featuring talents like Manu Bhaker and Rudrankksh Patil, is also poised to leave a mark.
The presence of weightlifter Mirabai Chanu and badminton star PV Sindhu, both Olympic medalists, adds further prestige to India’s contingent in Hangzhou. Additionally, archery world champions Aditi Gopichand Swami and Ojas Pravin Deotale are primed to showcase their skills.
Beyond the pursuit of medals, Hangzhou also offers the opportunity to secure Olympic quotas for the Paris 2024 Games, with a total of 74 quotas up for grabs. These quotas are spread across various sports, including archery, artistic swimming, boxing, breaking, hockey, modern pentathlon, sailing, tennis, and water polo.
As of now, India has already amassed an impressive tally of 107 medals at the Asian Games 2023, consisting of 28 gold, 38 silver, and 41 bronze medals. While India’s performance has garnered commendation, China currently leads the overall medals table with an impressive 187 gold medals, followed by the Republic of Korea with 36 gold medals and Japan with 47 gold medals.
