Up until yesterday, Meghalaya had acquired just 1 gold through cycling but were able to accomplish the jump to fourth thanks to a rich haul of 5 gold medals in the athletics events that began today, 1 in golf, two (Nangkitbok Songthiang and one other) in wushu and one (Prem Chettri) in judo. 

Assam, meanwhile, continued to dominate in the pool, winning all 4 events held today.
