  • Asian Games 2018: We’ll know how good we are in Indonesia, says boxing coach Santiago Nieva

A few months back, India’s contingent size for the Asian Games stood at 524. But after numerous court orders and reshuffling to include or drop athletes due to selection controversies, the final number stands at 572. That number was arrived at just a week before the Asian Games begin in Jakarta and Palembang, Indonesia on August 18 with the closing ceremony to take place on September 2. These 572 athletes will represent India in 36 sports and can be broken down into 312 men and 260 women. These athletes will be accompanied by 232 coaches, support staff and officials (49 to come from no cost to government) and takes the total contingent size to 804.
