18:23 (IST)29 AUG 2018

WHAT a moment for Arpinder. What a moment for India, who won their first GOLD medal in Triple Jump after 48 years.

18:22 (IST)29 AUG 2018

ARPINDER SINGH wins GOLD in the Men's Triple Jump for India.

18:21 (IST)29 AUG 2018

But Arpinder decides to jog and just says I will just take the GOLD medal, thank you very much.

18:21 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Arpinder is assured of GOLD but he goes for his last attempt. Can he break any records along with the GOLD medal?

18:21 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Kurbanov will finish with a PB of 16.62 and he will take SILVER.

18:20 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Ruslan Kurbanov is the final one who can challenge India's GOLD medal. A good attempt but it doesn't look like it will be enough.

18:20 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Japan's Kohei Yamashita finishes with disqualifed attempt. He was favorite for Gold but finishes out of contention for even a Bronze.

18:18 (IST)29 AUG 2018

He finishes with 16.38 and there will be no medal for Rakesh Babu at the Asian Games 2018 Men's Triple Jump.

18:17 (IST)29 AUG 2018

It is a good jump. His leg is troubling him and the gap is 6cm, which is excellent. That was perfect technique even with an ailing leg.

18:17 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Rakesh Babu goes for his final attempt. He needs at least 16.63 to have in contention for Silver. 

18:16 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Arpinder's main threat is done and he is still top. Will he finish with the GOLD?

18:15 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Shuo Cao goes for his final attempt and he finishes with 16.56. He might get a Bronze but he isn't challenging Arpinder for GOLD.

18:12 (IST)29 AUG 2018

UPDATE: Manjit Singh and Jinson Johnson both qualify for the 1500m Finals. And it is a rare double for India, who will be in contention for another medal in Athletics.

18:11 (IST)29 AUG 2018

No he cannot. Arpinder's fifth attempt is disqualified but all he needs is the rest to not catch and he will still sit pretty at the top.

18:11 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Arpinder Singh goes for his fifth attempt. But can he improve?

18:03 (IST)29 AUG 2018

UPDATE: The Men's 1500m Qualification is about to begin. India's Jinson Johnson will take part in that hoping to seal a spot in the finals.

18:02 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Arpinder finishes with 16.08 and that means that he is still top after four rounds.

18:02 (IST)29 AUG 2018

He goes again and it is clean but despite a good technique and excellent gap of just 1 cm, this isn't his best effort.

18:01 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Arpinder Singh now comes in for his fourth attempt. Can he extend his lead?

17:58 (IST)29 AUG 2018

It is valid and there is plenty of gap once again. Can he improve? No he can't. He is limping now and that is not a good sign.

17:58 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Rakesh Babu is currently in fifth spot. Can he better his tally in his fourth attempt?

17:46 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Ruslan Kurbanov and Kohei Yamashita split the Indian duo after three attempts. Arpinder Singh is still top with 16.77 while Rakesh Babu is fourth.

17:36 (IST)29 AUG 2018

You bet he does, Arpinder Singh has 16.77 in his third attempt and extends his lead at the top to his compatriot in second.

17:35 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Next up is Arpinder Singh, who gets ready for his third attempt. That is a brilliant run-up and he goes long. But will he increase his lead at the top.

17:35 (IST)29 AUG 2018

It is a good run-up, excellent technique but he can't better his previous mark.

17:34 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Next up is Rakesh Babu. Can he overtake his compatriot?

17:27 (IST)29 AUG 2018

India are first and second in the Men's Triple Jump Finals after two attempts

17:22 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Let us now return back to the Men's Triple Jump Finals where India are first and second after two attempts.

17:18 (IST)29 AUG 2018

But in the end, she had to settle for SILVER but what a race it was by Dutee Chand. Another medal for India in Athletics and this is courtesy of 23.20 from Dutee Chand.

17:17 (IST)29 AUG 2018

After a good start, Dutee was actually in the lead for a brief moment and was challenging the Bahrain athlete for GOLD.

17:16 (IST)29 AUG 2018

What a race by Dutee, no photo finish here but Bahrain's Odiong takes GOLD but it is silver for India courtesy of another fantastic finish by Dutee.

17:16 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Dutee Chand wins SILVER for INDIA.

17:15 (IST)29 AUG 2018

And off they go. No false start here.

17:15 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Will it be another photo finish for Dutee Chand, who is in lane 3?

17:15 (IST)29 AUG 2018

This should be a cracking contest. We are about to get underway. Can Dutee pick up another athletics medal for India in Asian Games 2018?

17:14 (IST)29 AUG 2018

Now we are all set for the 200m Women's Final. That will feature India's Dutee Chand.

17:12 (IST)29 AUG 2018

But as things stand, India have the top two in the standings in the Men's Triple Jump Finals.
