The Philippines settled for two silver medals this time as fancied weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz and Fil-American Eric Shaun Cray were beaten by their determined rivals in the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) yesterday at the Ashgabat Olympic Complex here. The Indian gold medalist has won many state, national and worldwide school meet gold medals in middle and long distance track events.

Muhammad Safdar won the medal in the men's classic style competition, 65kg weight category.

Iranian taekwondo fighter Erfan Nazemi also demonstrated incredible displays of spinning kicks and fast kicking techniques in his march to the final showdown of men's minus 80-kilogram weight category.
