Background: By November 27, China had gained an impressive tally of medals at the Asian Games in New Delhi, India. More wins took the Chinese gold medal tally to 52 with more than 60 silver and bronze medals. In the table tennis events, China captured three gold. Two of the finals were all-China affairs, including the women's final between Tong Ling and Cao Yan Hua, facing the camera. Cao Yan Hua won in the three straight sets. China's Xie Saike defeated his Japanese opponent Kiyoshi Saito, nearest to camera, by three games to one, in the men's final. The ten thousand metres men's final also boosted China's gold medal tally, when Guowei Zhang, runner number 149, won in the time of 29 minutes 37.56 seconds. He was closely followed across the finish line by Japanese runner Kenji Ide, with Korean Won Keun Park taking the bronze medal. In the women's shot put event, a new Asian Games record was set by Chinese competitor, Meisu Lin, with a throw of 17.77 metres. A bronze medal went to Japan's Junichi Usui in the men's long jump, confirming his country's number two ranking in the overall medals tally. A gold went to the Philippines in the women's 100 metres final, when it was won by former actress, Lydia de Vega. Keeping a keen watch on events for several days was the India Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi. The Indian women's hockey team, making its first appearance in Asian Games hockey, had a very impressive debut. They defeated Singapore, playing in red, by three-nil in a game watched by Mrs. Gandhi, and her family and friends.
