South Korean youngster Woo Sang-hyeok of South Korea beat Zhang Guowei of China to clinch the gold medal in the men's high jump at the Asian Athletics Championships in Bhubaneswar.
The 21-year-old, who was 22nd at last year's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, recorded a personal best of 2.30 metres to claim the title at the Kalinga Stadium.
Zhang, silver medallist in the event at the 2015 World Championships on home soil in Beijing, was second with a best effort of 2.28, with Majededdin Ghazal claiming a rare medal for Syria by taking bronze.
On the track, Abdulazia Al-Mandeel led home a Kuwaiti one-two to secure the gold medal in the men's 110m hurdles.
The 28-year-old crossed the line in a time of 13.50sec to cross the line in front of compatriot Yaqoub Mohamed Al-Youha.
The bronze medal went to Saudi Arabia's Ahmed Khader Al-Muwallad.
In the women's 100m hurdles race, South Korean athlete Jung Hye-lim clinched the Asian title by clocking 13.16.
Ayako Kimura did enough for the silver medal, while Wang Dou of China earned bronze.
On a busy day of action out on the track, India's Sudha Singh delivered the gold medal for the host nation in the women's 3,000m steeplechase, taking full advantage of the absence of Olympic champion and world record holder Ruth Jebet of Bahrain.
Singh, who led from the start, crossed the line in 9min 59.47sec to secure the Asian Athletics Championships crown, with Hyo Gyong of North Korea and Nana Sato of Japan proving to be distance silver and bronze medallists respectively.
"I am very happy to win this gold," said Singh.
"This is my top level competition after Rio Olympics.
"I was down with swine flu after the Rio Olympics and I was down for five-six months and after that I started training slowly and steadily.
"So, this win is special.
"It is a slow timing but the conditions are not that good."
