Indian sailor Vishnu Saravanan won a bronze, the country’s first-ever medal in the men’s dinghy ILCA-7 event here on Wednesday.
Saravanan finished with a net score of 34 points to miss the silver medal by just one point in the gruelling 11-race competition.
South Korea’s Jeemin HA took the second spot with 33 points. Singapore’s Jun Han Ryan Lo claimed the gold with a net score of 26.
Lack of wind, however, denied India a medal in women’s single dinghy ILCA-6 event where Nethra Kumanan had to settle for a disappointing fourth place finish after race No 12, which was to be the final one in the category, was cancelled.
Nevertheless, the Indian sailors matched their 2018 Asian Games feat of one silver and two bronze medals here.
