Rio Paralympics medallist Deepa Malik bagged her second medal at the Asian Para Games as she clinched the bronze in the women's F51/52/53s discus throw event here Friday.
Deepa produced her best effort in her fourth attempt, a 9.67-metre throw to claim the third spot. Elnaz Darabian of Iran took home the gold and set a new Asian record with her best throw of 10.71m. Fatema Nedham of Bahrain won the silver with 9.87m.
In the F51/52/53 category, athletes have full power and movements in their arms, but no power in their abdominal muscles and typically no sitting balance. They compete in seated positions.
Deepa had earlier won a bronze in women's F 53/54 javelin throw event.
