New Delhi: The 2023, Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, is moving towards its final stages with only six more days to go. Athletes from across the world put everything they got on the line, to win Asian Games medals for their country.
Athletes from 45 countries across the Asian continents are competing across 45 different events to earn Asian glory.

Although China is running their own race at the top spot, the race for the second spot is much more interesting.
Japan and the Republic of Korea are playing a tug of war at the second spot.
At the moment, both Japan and Korea have 30 gold medals under their name, but the Japanese pips the Koreans for the second spot, courtesy of their superior silver medal record.
The Indian contingent is also enjoying a great run at the Asian Games 2023 and is currently at the number 4 spot with 56 medals in total, including 13 gold medals.
Chinese Taipei is right behind them at fifth spot with 12 gold medals under their belt.
