The haul of medals in a record collection at the Asian Games for Rikako Ikee will increase the weight of expectation on her at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The Turkmenistani, who won a silver medal at last year's Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, came to the stage twice for her opening snatch at 88kg looking ashen.

Ikee still has one more race to come on the sixth and final day of swimming.

"For me, I'm done racing [for these Asian Games] and to finish on a high note, I'm really proud of how all of us showed up tonight especially after. you know, it's kind of a long meet". "As I saw our boat going forward with the athletes' combined effort and strength, I felt the united power of Korea".

"I was really hurting in the last few meters but I just concentrated on the touch and luckily I got there first, but I used up all my energy".

Her close win over Liu, who swam a world record time in the 50m backstroke earlier this week, added the freestyle sprint title to those she won in the 100m freestyle, 50m and 100m butterfly as well as the 4x100 freestyle and medley relays. He finished up with four golds - the others coming in the 200, 400 and 800 - and two relay silvers.

"The competition between China and Japan is not over".

The Japanese Olympic Committee have set an ambitious target of 30 gold medals at Tokyo 2020, nearly double their existing record of 16 (Tokyo 1964 and Athens 2004). It took a week to reap the medals, a big achievement considering the joint canoe crews only had three weeks to prepare for the games.

In what would have been unthinkable in India before the event, there were no kabaddi golds for the spiritual home of the sport. The men's sabre team of Cyrus Chan Chi-hin, Lam Hin-chung, Terence Lee Chak-fung and Low Ho-tin reached the semi-finals where they lost to South Korea 45-20, ensuring themselves of bronze. Now two have done it. Japan are next with 34 gold and 109 in total, and South Korea have 25 gold medals and 84 overall.

The gold was awarded to Korea - the name given to the combined teams that are entered in rowing, canoeing and women's basketball at the Asian Games - rather than being added to the tally of either North or South Korea.

This was North Korea's fifth gold medal in weightlifting at Jakarta-Palembang 2018.

South and North Korea have entered joint teams in previous global events, starting with the 1991 table tennis world championships, and more recently at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

In the first doping case of the Games, the Olympic Council of Asia said Turkmenistan wrestler Rustem Nazarov tested positive for a banned diuretic.
