Razie Rahim is on his fifth Asian Games, still Gold eludes
The Malaysians here are upbeat. They are sure they are top contenders here as in 2010 and 2018, last two recent times when they played the Asian Games final. That they failed on both occasions to clinch the gold did not dampen their spirit, and wants to seal a place for the eluding Olympic berth.

Indian Women’s Hockey Team looking to bring home the Gold at 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou 2022
The Indian team will begin their campaign against Singapore on 27th September
Hangzhou: The Indian Women's Hockey Team will begin their quest to win the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou on 27th September with their opening match against Singapore.

Deep Grace Ekka Exclusive: 'Indian women's hockey team is going to Asian Games with only one aim, to win gold'
Ahead of the Asian Games 2023, Firstpost caught up with India's vice-captain Deep Grace Ekka, who spoke about women's hockey team's preparation for the tournament, gold medal chances and the competition from other teams.

Going into the Asian Games 2023, the goal and the expectation for the Indian women’s hockey team is crystal clear — a gold medal. Being the highest-ranked team in the women’s event, anything less than gold would be seen as a failure. Also, a gold at Hangzhou 2022 doesn’t only guarantee glory but also a direct ticket to the Olympic Games Paris 2024.
Can the most experienced Indian women do it for once?
There are only seven players here who have 200 or more caps. It includes five from India. Not only that. Savita’s team is far ahead of others in terms of collective caps too. India has collective caps of 2143, which is not only more than combined tally of six teams, but also head and shoulders above the top contenders China (1538), reigning champions Japan (1008), South Korea (992) and Malaysia still way behind the rest with 847.
For Vandana Katariya, hockey isn't a sport, it's a gamechanger in life

There are several reasons why Vandana Katariya is important to India's hockey chances at the Asian Games, and also why the tournament is important to her. The first is obvious: Even at 31, she has the goalscoring nous and record that the team is short of, especially in Rani Rampal's absence. She has played more matches and scored more goals than anybody in the squad, and her form becomes crucial if India want to win the gold medal and qualify for the Paris Olympics.
