The Beginning Of A Beautiful Friendship

The 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou has witnessed a strong but beautiful friendship. Probably, the Asian Games have never witnessed such an emotional moment before. It was between the two most prominent and capable swimmers.

●      Zhang Yufei (New Games' MVP from China).

●      Ikee Rikako (former MVP from Japan).

Zhang was at the Women's 50m butterfly competition and won it recently. Well, Ikee was present there and witnessed the win; she was also a winner of the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta. Well, that was her first international medal.

However, just after that, she was diagnosed with leukemia in 2019. This was a disaster for her. Following such unavoidable life events, she could not keep herself from breaking down while she found her coach.

In the meantime, the other swimmer, Zhang, consolidated her with a hug and shared tears for each other. This was special because the emotion was at its peak, and no one could deny the scene.

The combination of happiness and disappointment came into contact to create such an exponential emotional moment. However, they not only shared their emotional moments but also

hold the joint record of 6 gold medals (most by any) in a single Games.

Age Is Just A Number

For Oksana Chusovitina, age is just a number. She is not done yet at the age of 78. She has always gone through eight Olympic Games and five Asian Games. However, she has no intention to leave the field but come back again through the World Cup in Paris in 2024.

She said the disappointment is there, but it is also an inspiration for her and others. This is the way of life, and she was right.

Not everyone can do the hard work needed, and thus, she should feel special about what she is.

China's Games From Opening To Closing

China won 383 games in the Asian Games 2023, and that is a big record for them, and no one is near them.

China also quadrupled Japan with their 201 goal medals. While Japan won only 52 gold medals, they are almost half (188) in total counts with China.

The hosts have really outnumbered other countries; hopefully, they are going to be at the top in Aichi-Nagoya in 2026 as well. This Asian Games was an opening and closing for China as they did it all.

On Cloud Nine

Mazel Paris Alegado, the youngest member of the Philippines, took part in the Asian Games 2023. She is just nine years old, and that is a very young age, even from the standard of the sport.

Well, the aspiring young talent has completed 7th in the competition. Well, she might not have won a medal, but she has got all hearts kept with her. People talk about her as she is the youngest member of the Games.

For 9-year-olds, competing in skateboarding is not an easy task to follow. A whole lot of competition with a prominent balance is needed. When she was just 9, she was not fit and improved enough to take the pressure, but she did.

Rain Men: Indian Cricketers Strike Gold

Winning a medal for the country is always alluring, and full of emotions are present there. India did it with their cricket team. When it comes to cricket, everyone knows and expects India to do something in any competition.

When the World Cup is going on this year, everyone is expecting India to list the trophy as the host. On the other hand, the young talents of the country have already lifted the gold medal in the 2023 Asian Games.

They are probably the most happening team in the cricket world, and everyone knew that they would win the title. However, it was not the way everyone wanted. It was basically washed out. However, the rules suggested India lift the medal as they are the number one in the world when it comes to cricket.
