China proved they are still the Asian Games gold standard in the pool by scooping six swimming titles Tuesday, while the first doping test of the 17th Asiad also came to light with a Tajikistan football player testing positive.South Korea, who are aiming to finish runner-up to China for a fifth straight Games and win 90 gold medals, have earned 19 so far, three more than third-placed Japan.The only blemish on an otherwise perfect night in the pool for China came in the men's 200-meter breaststroke, where Kazakhstan teenager Dmitry Balandin slashed nearly six seconds off his best time to win gold.While China continues to gorge on gold, Thailand savored its first success when Yannaphon Larp Apharat won the men's bowling singles title, and Abdullah Kh Kh H M Almezayen struck gold for Kuwait in the men's squash final.North Korean weightlifters are becoming more used to the podium, and after winning three Olympic gold medals in London two years ago, they have already won three golds and broken three world records in South Korea.South Korea enjoyed the perfect end to the action Tuesday when their men's badminton team stunned China to take gold.
