South Korea's Son Heung-min moved just 90 minutes away from the gold medal that would spare him military service Wednesday as Bahrain's Edidiong Odiong completed a rare sprint double at the Asian Games. Tottenham Hotspur forward Son played a captain's role as Korea beat Vietnam 3-1 to reach the men's football final against Japan – his last chance for a title that would exempt from a career-threatening, 21-month military stint.Later, Nigerian-born Odiong became only the fourth woman to complete the 100- and 200-meter double when she won the half-lap race in 22.96 seconds, ahead of India's Dutee Chand on 23.20 .Shi Tingmao emulated Chinese diving greats Wu Minxia and Guo Jingjing with her fourth gold medal, in the synchronized 3-meter springboard, as China stayed perfect in the competition, with four wins out of four.
