Incheon: India on Saturday ended their 17th Asian Games campaign at the eighth spot on the medals tally, a drop of two positions from the previous edition which drew to a close here. India signed off with 57 medals — 11 gold, 10 silver and 36 bronze.

The tally dipped considerably compared to the 2010 edition in Guangzhou, China. In 2010, the country had ended sixth with 65 medals — 14 gold, 17 silver and 34 bronze.

As expected China ended their campaign on top claiming a whopping 342 medals. The Chinese contingent walked away with 151 gold, 108 silver and 83 bronze medals. Hosts South Korea finished a distant second with 234 medals — 79 gold, 71 silver and 77 bronze.

The medal count went down but Indian sports still had lots to celebrate with the men's hockey team coming good after a long time to strike gold even as the legend of MC Mary Kom got bigger in a mixed Asian Games campaign. Shooter Jitu Rai and freestyle grappler Yogeshwar Dutt were the other heroes.
