Asian Games 2023: Parul, Preeti Win Silver and Bronze in Women’s 3000m Steeplechase

New Delhi: An exceptional start from India in the medal events of athletics in the Asian Games 2023 on Day 9. India’s Parul Chaudhary clinched a silver medal in the women’s 3000m steeplechase while Priti Lamba won bronze. Parul clocked a timing of 9:27:63 while Preeti clocked 9:43:32.

India has already reached 56 medals in the Asian Games 2023 Medal Tally and getting to 100 medals looks quite possible with six days of action still left for India. On Monday, Sutirtha Mukherjee/Ayhika Mukherjee lost the table tennis women’s doubles semi-final but it was enough for the duo to bow out with only the third bronze that India has won in the sport at the Asian Games.

Earlier, India’s Asian Games 2023 Medal Tally was boosted by two bronze medals in skating. The first was won by the women’s team in speed skating 3000m relay while the second was won the men’s team in the men’s speed skating 300m relay. Indian men’s hockey team entered the semi-final following a 12-0 win over Bangladesh in its last Pool A match.
