What is your view of this Asian Game?

I think it is for sure that Chana gets the most medals as ever before, while the second place seems to be the contending between Japan and the host, South Korea.

However, there is one thing that has wondered me all along, that is, despite nearly equal in population, why India always gets so much less medal compare to China or even other small contries, why is that so? What is your opinion about this?

By the way, So far as I have seen there seems to be more and more outcries from many countries about dubious justice in many kind of sports. It was quite a surprise and shock when an India's boxer refused to receive the bronze medal and give it back to the host's boxer who already got the silver medal. Did you saw this moment, what do you think about this? I think this would inevitably be another historic moment adding to the notoriety in terms of sport of the host, South Korea. Despite so many complaints, still more and more doubts have continuously been rose in many kind of sports. Do you think your own country has suffered from any doubtful justice in any sport so far?

Sorry for my poor English. I'm just an English learner, please bear with me.

I did not watch it but follow the news occasionally, mainly to see how some athletes performed.
There are always controversies. However, it is also important to obey the judges.

East Asian countries value "face" much more than India, I think. Not necessarily a bad thing.
