Jinson Johnson helped India secure its 12th gold medal at the ongoing 18th Asian Games in Jakarta.

He finished in second place behind compatriot Manjit Singh in the men’s 800 m event. And now he has eventually won gold in the men’s 1500 m.

Jinson Johnson was the favourite from the start of the race. He managed to stay in the top three positions right throughout the race. He trailled behind Iran’s Amir Moradi and Bahrain’s Mohammad Tiaouali. In the final lap, Jinson seemed to have hit the accelerator as he raced away to a commanding lead. He eventually converted it to a gold medal finish in the end.
