India defeated South Korea 3-2 to win bronze in the 14th Asian Men’s U18 Volleyball Championship in Tehran on Monday.

South Korea, who was the 1999 Champions and silver medallists at the previous edition, had already suffered defeat in the hands of India in straight sets in the pool stage.

In what was an epic five set thriller India came on top in the last game after losing the third and fourth set in the third-place playoff by winning 25-20, 25-21, 26-28, 19-25, 15-12.

However, this is not the first time, India has won a medal in this event. In 2003, India won its first medal after defeating Iran to secure gold. Ever since, India has always come close to gold but has never it.

From 2005-2008, India has won two bronze and one silver medal, while coming a close fourth in 2010. The Indian U-18 team has qualified for the FIVB World U-19 Men’s Volleyball Championship.

Kush Singh, Dhurvil Patel, Shekhar Turan, Kabilan, Aryan and the libero, Yaman Khatik contributed to the Indian performance in winning bronze.
