    Khade hopes to get another medal in Asian Games

    Khade hopes to get another medal in Asian GamesTue, Nov 16 08:04 PM

    Guangzhou, Nov 16 (IANS) Virdhawal Khade, who Tuesday became the first Indian swimmer in 24 years to win a medal in the Asian Games, said he is gunning for another medal here.

    The 19-year-old made history by clinching a bronze in the men's 50m Butterfly. Khajan Singh's silver at the 1986 Games was the last medal for the Indians in Asiad swimming. The only Indian swimmer to win a gold medal so far is Sachin Nag in the 100 metres freestyle at the inaugural Asian Games in Delhi in 1951.

    Khade made up for his disappointing fourth-place finish in 50m freestyle Monday by clocking 24.31 seconds for a third-place finish at the Aoti Aquatics Centre.

    'I am over the moon right now,' Khade said. 'Yesterday's result gave me great confidence and I knew I could take my performances to the next level and win a medal for India'.

    Khade will be competing for the 100m freestyle event Wednesday. 'I am looking forward to tomorrow and I am confident of a good showing and another medal.'

    Khade's coach Nihar Ameen said he lived up to his talent. 'It's a big day for Indian swimming and an affirmation of his talent. I have always told everyone that Veer is a world class athlete and today he has proven his worth.'

    His performance will also see him rise in World rankings.
