Who is first Indian cyclist to win silver at Asian Championship in June 2022?
Abhishek Banerjee
Naveen John
Arvind Panwar
Ronaldo Singh

Correct Answer : Option (D) - Ronaldo Singh

Ronaldo Singh on Wednesday(22nd June 2022) scripted history as he became the first Indian cyclist to win a silver in a continental tournament in the senior category by finishing second in the sprint event on the concluding day of the Asian Track Championship here.
Ronaldo’s feat was the best performance by any Indian cyclist in a continental championship. He gave a tough fight to Japan’s experienced rider Kento Yamasaki but finished with a silver.
Yamasaki defeated Ronaldo in back-to-back races to finish at the top of the podium. Kazakhstan’s Andrey Chugay won the bronze in the event.
“This (Ronaldo’s silver) was the first silver won by an Indian in Asian Championships. No Indian has won a gold in our history, so his silver winning feat is the best ever performance by an Indian in continental championships,” Cycling Federation of India chairman Onkar Singh told PTI.
Singh is also the secretary general of Asian Cycling Confederation..
