Asian Games - Day 4
Chinese Team dominated the Team Event claiming Gold

Women's Team Finals

The Chinese team whitewashed the Team event as they stayed 8 points clear of their nearest rival North Korea. They decimated the second and third-placed teams by scoring heavily in the Balance Beam and the Floor routine.

The North Korean team took the Silver medal even though they had a disastrous campaign on the Floor discipline. Their performance on the Uneven Bars and Vault ensured that they regained lost ground to retain their position in the top 3.

Japan took the Bronze by losing out on the Silver by 0.200 points. But both Japan and North Korea were 7 points clear of the 4th placed team South Korea.

The Indians had a poor campaign in the Finals as they were not able to replicate their qualifying scores which would have put them in the 5th position. Their performance on the Balance Beam was poor as they were down by 4 points from their qualification score. Dipa Karmakar coming off from a long injury lay off was not able to put up her best show at the Games. The other Indian's did better than Dipa but were too nervous as they had competed in their first Finals. They would do well with more experience of participating in International events.
