Mariana Mohammad crashed out of the Asian Games in a bloody accident that marred the women's time trial Saturday, while three Kazakhstan field hockey players were kicked out in a case of national identity fraud.
Mohammad, a 32-year-old Malaysian cyclist, had the leading intermediate time when she collided with a fence on the side of the course and cartwheeled her bike. Malaysian team officials said she had a broken collarbone and a deep cut on her chin, but was in a stable condition after treatment at the Guangdong Provincial Hospital.
Lee Min-hye went on to win the 35.6-kilometer race in 49 minutes, 38.35 seconds, giving South Korea victories in both the men's and women's time trials.
Choe Hyeong-min gave South Korea its first gold in the men's time trial in 24 years when he completed three laps of the 17.8-kilometer course in 1 hour, 8 minutes, 16.12 seconds.
South Korea swept all four gold medals at golf, including both team events. Kim Hyun-soo won the women's total at 11-under 277, while Kim Meen-whe won the men's tournament with a four-round total 15-under-par 273, nine clear of Miguel Luis Tabuena of the Philippines.
There was almost as much interest at the rear of the field, where Ali Ahmad Fazel of Afghanistan closed with a 40-over final round of 112 to finish at an endurance-testing 179 over.
"I'm satisfied with what I did," said Fazel, a student who practices at Afghanistan's only golf course _ a nine-hole facility at Kabul. "I want to be a professional golfer someday. I just want to work hard."
Ra Un Sim scored twice in extra time as two-time defending champion North Korea beat archrival South Korea 3-1 to reach the women's football final.
Japan edged China 1-0 with a goal in extra time in the earlier semifinal. It was a rare setback for team China, which is dominating the standings with 138 gold and 270 medals overall.
Two of those came as expected, with Li Xiaoxia rallying from a 3-0 deficit to beat Chinese teammate Guo Yue in the women's table tennis final and Ma Long defeating Wang Hao in the men's decider.
Another bankable gold medal was delivered in the women's badminton final, with Wang Shixian beating Chinese teammate Wang Xin 21-18, 21-15. Indonesia won the men's doubles, with Markis Kido and Hendra Seiawan saving a championship point in the second game before rallying to beat Malaysia's Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong 16-21, 26-24, 21-19.
South Korea was second on the medals standings with 52 gold medals, well clear of Japan's 29. Iran was next with eight gold, followed on seven by Hong Kong and Thailand, which collected six on Saturday including three in sailing and both sepak takraw team events.
"Our athletes have been performing well ... Now the situation is beyond our expectations," Lee Kee-heung, leader of the South Korean delegation, told a news conference. "If the athletes keep on working well ... we believe we can get more than 70 gold medals this time."
Another could come in archery, where 18-year-old Kim Woo-jin set a world record score of 1,387.
Kenki Sato won the individual eventing gold medal for Japan, which also won the team eventing title at equestrian.
The featured men's field hockey match featured India edging archrival Pakistan 3-2 to secure a semifinal spot.
The women's field hockey continued after Kazakhstan was stripped of its competition points and dropped to last place ahead of its final preliminary match against India.
Technical delegate Mathavas Deavadas said Alessya Pyotukh, Yulliya Mikheichik and Anastassiya Chsherbakova "admitted they represented Belarus" at a World Cup qualifying tournament in April.
Asian Games organizers have awarded four of the matches here to Kazakhstan's opponents with a score of 5-0 while retaining South Korea's 10-3 scoreline because of a bigger victory margin.
The only other athlete kicked out of the games so far was a Shokir Muminov, a judo silver medalist from Uzbekistan who had his results nullified and banned from competition after testing positive for a banned stimulant in a doping test.
Islam Bozbayev of Kazakhstan and Masahiro Takamatsu of Japan, who had earlier been awarded bronze medals behind Muminov, were elevated to the silver medal position in the 81-kilogram division.
