Social media users were quick to spot the error. One wrote, “Madam @ashabhosle Women’s 100m hurdle is not till Oct 1st and #Athletic in #AsianGames2023 will start only from Sep-29. Refer to this link Video you shared is from a prior completion. We wish her best to win in #AsianGames too!”
Another said, “This is not true ma’am.. This is about the Asian Athletics Championship and not the Asian Games. The Asian Athletic Championship took place last month.”
A third added, “Its an old video…of july 13th Asian Athletics Championships…”
One clarified, “Mam this is Asian Athletics championships not Asian Games, n yes congratulations to her for winning gold in Asian Athletics championships.”
One suggested: “Delete this post madam. Its incorrect and this video is from July where Jyoti won in Asian championship I guess”.
