Johnson grabbed his second medal to add to his 800m silver medal that he won a few days ago.

Meanwhile gold medalist of 800m, Manjit Singh probably left it for a bit too late to catch up. His 800m tactics didn't really pay off in 1500m as he finished 4th. Nonetheless this competition between #ManjitSingh & #JinsonJohnson is igniting indian middle distance running— Sayan (@Tweets_by_Sayan) August 30, 2018
Jinson Johnson’s first thought after crossing line was to thank God for making him winner of Asian Games in the 1500m run. Until last lap no one was wailing to take lead of slow pace race, Jinson took lead at 150m to go to cross finish in 3:44.72s @afiindia pic.twitter.com/jHjXFLnydf— Rahul PAWAR (@rahuldpawar) August 30, 2018

GOLD FOR JINSON JOHNSON. He was stunned in the 800m, but Jinson Johnson proves he is the best runner over 1500m winning gold in 3:44.72 seconds at the #AsianGames2018 pic.twitter.com/q2hDfkNPKo— jonathan selvaraj (@jon_selvaraj) August 30, 2018
Jinson Johnson found redemption after 800m silver by leaving the field behind in the men's 1500m final. He hung in with the leaders and produced his kick over the last 150m to win in 3:47.72. Manjit Singh ran a solid final lap to finish fourth. pic.twitter.com/WCFjd7KnCn— G Rajaraman (@g_rajaraman) August 30, 2018
