NOC Profile

  • General interest
    • Highlights : India is one of only six countries to have competed in every edition of the Asian Games.

      Athletics has been a strong source of medals for India, and India's most successful female athlete, PT Usha, competed in that sport. Between 1982 and 1994 she won four gold and seven silver medals. Her haul included an incredible 1986 Games where she won the 200m, 400m, 400m hurdles and 4x400m relay, and claimed silver in the 100m.

      Usha's gold medal collection is only bettered by male tennis player Leander Paes, who won five gold medals over a 16-year period between 1990 and 2006.

      Another notable name in India's Asian Games history is Milkha Singh. The sprinter, known as The Flying Sikh, shot to stardom after winning gold in the 1958 Commonwealth Games, and two months prior to that he had shown his strength by winning the 200m and 400m at the Asian Games.
