India name big squad for Asian meet

India will field a jumbo 107-member contingent at the 20th Asian Athletics Championships in Pune next month.

With the hosts allowed three entries in each event, the Athletics Federation of India decided to utilise it almost to the maximum, with medal chances not the primary consideration. As such, the top placers in the Inter-State meet earlier this month all made it to the squad.

India will also have a strong support staff of 38 personnel, including coaches, masseurs and doctors.
