Gearing Up for Greatness: Quest for Excellence at the Asian Games 2023

The excitement is palpable as we eagerly await the Asian Games 2023, set to unfold in Hangzhou, China, from September 23 to October 8. Our hearts swell with pride as athletes from Asia compete in a dazzling array of 40 sports disciplines. Indians, this isn’t just a competition; it’s a chance to shine on the grandest stage and surpass our past glories. The Asian Games, initially planned for 2022, had to wait a year due to the pandemic. This extra time has only fueled our athletes’ determination to shine brighter than ever.

India Asia Games

Recalling our journey, we can’t help but marvel at how far we’ve come. In the previous edition held in Jakarta in 2018, our contingent of 570 athletes dazzled in 36 sports, amassing a whopping 69 medals – 15 gold, 24 silver, and 30 bronze. This triumph was more than just a medal tally; it was a testament to our growing prowess in sports. Our rising participation in these games reflects our nation’s growing passion for athletics and commitment to nurturing talents.

Our aspirations for the Asian Games 2023 soar high, and Sports Minister Anurag Thakur echoes our optimism. His unwavering faith in our athletes’ capabilities is heartwarming. He points out the game-changing facilities and rigorous training our athletes have received, evident in their outstanding performances in global events like the Olympics, Paralympics, Deaflympics, and Commonwealth Games. Backed by a substantial investment of over Rs 220 crore for our athletes’ preparation, our government’s unwavering support paints a vivid picture of their dedication to our champions’ triumph on an international platform.


In the realm of sports, India is brimming with stars, each ready to script their stories of glory. Badminton aficionados eagerly anticipate the prowess of HS Prannoy, Kidambi Srikanth, and Lakshya Sen in the singles category. Our hopes surge as we rally behind our men’s doubles sensation, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, ready to claim the podium with their world no. 2 ranking and previous tournament conquests.


ICC Men’s ODI World Cup

Cricket, the heartbeat of our nation, carries dreams of its own. Despite some of our cricketing icons participating in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup, our young yet formidable squad, led by the spirited Ruturaj Gaikwad, is poised to conquer hearts. The absence of a few might create a void, but our team’s unity and sheer determination are bound to make us proud. Not to forget our cricketing heroines, whose determination and prowess promise a podium finish for our women’s cricket squad.


The boxing ring is set for fireworks, with the likes of reigning world champion Nikhat Zareen and Olympic bronze medallist Lovlina Borgohain stepping in. Their punches carry our dreams, and the Asian Games serve as a gateway to the coveted Paris Olympics 2024. In the world of weightlifting, Saikhom Mirabai Chanu, Bindyarani Devi, and Achinta Sheuli embody our aspirations for medals.

And after a nod from the government our Blue Tigers are set to take on their rivals and level up the playing field. Led by our captain and leader Sunil Chettri, the blue tigers have been on a tremendous & fresh run of victories, and I personally believe we are gonna do well at the Asian Games 2023.

As the grand event approaches, India’s spirit soars high. With unwavering preparation, fueled by the nation’s love and the government’s support. Our athletes stand poised to etch their names in gold. The journey to Hangzhou is a journey of hope, courage, and unity. Where the tricolour flutters and dreams know no bounds. As the curtain rises, the world will witness our triumphs and celebrations. World marking yet another glorious chapter in our sporting saga.
