Asian Games 2023 Day 8 LIVE Updates: India win three medals in shooting and golf in Hangzhou

Asian Games 2023 Day 8 LIVE Updates: India win three medals, one gold and two silvers, on Day 8 (1 October) in Hangzhou. Follow for latest updates, scores, results and medals from Hangzhou 2022.

In the very first minute, Deep Grace Ekka with an incredible goalline clearance. South Korea caught India napping and had acres of space to score. The Korean player rounded Savita in goal but Deep Grace Ekka was alert to make the save on the goalline. At the other end, India have a chance to score of their own but Salima Tete's shot goes well over. That's a cracking start to the game.

Aditi Ashok speaks to the media after her silver medal finish

"It wasn’t a good day. I played bad. There’s no way around saying it. But overall if I look at my four-day score it’s pretty good. Seventeen under; at the start of the week I would have taken that. It’s just that when you shoot five over on the last day it doesn’t feel as good."

"You’re never totally happy unless you win so I’m not too happy right now. I’m sure some day I’ll look back and think it was a good week but silver is not better than gold."

"When I got fourth in Tokyo (Olympic Games) I wasn’t inconsistent like today. There, it was just four good rounds and somebody else was a few shots better. Today I kind of threw it away. I played five over. You see my previous three rounds and they were nothing like today."

"I shot my career-best round (61) yesterday and probably my worst of the year today."

"I just had a few bad swings. Sometimes you make a bad swing and it doesn’t cost you but today I made a few which ended up being bogeys and doubles. I missed a lot of fairways too, which didn’t help."
