Shiva Keshavan wins gold medal: Indian Winter Olympian Shiva Keshavan won gold medal on Friday at Asian Luge championships, which was held at Altenberg, Germany. The sole Indian participant and defending Asian champion retained his title with a time of 55.60 seconds. “I am so proud to bring the gold medal back to India for the fourth time. The track is one of the most difficult in the world and I have had a few bad crashes here in the past. So it was a challenge on many levels. I want to thank all my sponsors and supporters, without who i really would not have made it this far,” said Keshavan after the race.According to the source, Keshavan will represent India at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Alpensia Sliding Centre at Pyeongchang in South Korea for his record sixth Olympics. The race, which was originally scheduled in Nagano, Japan, was shifted to the EisKanal in Germany due to technical issues at the Nagano ‘Spiral’ Venue that had adverse safety implications for the fastest Olympic sport on ice.
