In this photo by Kin Cheung, India’s kabaddi team catches Iranian player Malihe Miri during the women’s gold medal match at the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea. India’s women’s and men’s teams both won gold in the sport that originated in India centuries ago. The game is played like a rougher game of tag. The offense sends a raider into the rival half of the court to gain points by trying to touch opponents, who then leave the game. The raider chants “kabaddi” until running out of breath. The defending team tries to either evade the touch or grapples with the raider to stop the player’s return to the offensive side of the court.
