Lakshya Sen win a gold medal in the mixed team event. Sen was part of the ‘Team Alpha’ that beat ‘Team Omega’ 110-106 in the final to take the gold.
However, this gold medal was not added to India’s medal tally.
In fact, Indian players have won 10 medals (four golds and six silvers) at the Youth Olympic Games 2018 while India’s medal tally has only 7 medals (three golds and four silvers) so far.
This is because Indian athletes have won three medals in mixed events. Youth Olympic Games 2018 feature some unusual mixed team event. These events not only mix genders but also mixes athletes of different nationalities.
Our congratulations to Lakshya Sen.
