Jakarta : India's Govindan Lakshmanan missed out on taking a medal in the men's 10,000 metres category at the 18th Asian Games here on Sunday as he was disqualified following an official review.

The Indian Army runner had originally finished third, which would have earned the first Asian Games medal for India in that event after a gap of two decades.

But the Indian was disqualified because his foot touched the inside of the track.
