The Indian contingent has crossed their best-ever medal haul in the Asian Games history with a total of 86 medals in Hangzhou, including 21 gold, 32 silver, and 33 bronze.

With just 14 medals away from a historic 100-medal feat, The Bridge explores the possibility of India winning a hundred medals at the Asian Games 2023.

With three more days to go and events like Wrestling, Archery, Cricket, and Kabaddi remaining, mathematically the Indian contingent is well in contention to achieve the feat.

Medals won by India so far: 91 medals

Assured Medals: India has assured itself medals in sports like Archery, Kabaddi, Cricket and Badminton. At the time of writing, India is assured of a total of nine medals.

Ojas Deotale and Abhishek Verma in men's compound individual event, Satwik Rankireddy-Chirag Shetty in men's doubles, Jyothi Surekha Vennam in women's compound individual event, Kabaddi men and women team, men's bridge team, men's cricket team and men hockey team

When we add these medals, India will have a total of 100 medals in the kitty.

Possible Medals: After the confirmed medals, India has strong medal chances in women's hockey, and Chess (men's and women's).

Aditi Swami in the women's compound archery individual event will fight in the bronze medal match, and the world champion will surely look to make up for the semifinal loss.

The women's hockey team will play in the bronze medal match and will look to finish on the podium after a disappointing loss to China in the semifinals.

In chess - the men's and women's teams - need three wins in the last round to maintain their position at the silver medal position.

If we go by the calculations here, India is looking to win at least three more medals through these possible routes making it a total of 102 medals.

Conclusion: With all the permutations and combinations done, India has assured themselves with 100 medals and will go beyond that looking at the upcoming events.
