more-inKerala’s Jinson Johnson, the Asian Championship 800m bronze medallist in Bhubaneswar last year, and the men’s and women’s mile relay teams struck gold at the invitational athletics meet, a test event for this year’s Asian Games, in Jakarta on Wednesday. The 4x400m relay teams also did not have to sweat much for victory and the women’s quartet, virtually a new combination which included talented sprinter Hima Das, was the lone team in the event. India topped the athletics medals table with 13 golds, five silvers and four bronzes but there was some disappointment too with its men’s 4x100m relay team being disqualified. 4x400m relay: 1. 4x400m relay: India (Hima Das, A. Nithya Shree, Sarita Ben Gayakwad, Sonia Baishya) 3:37.76s.
