India, on Monday, were assured of at least two bronze medals in Wushu with Thoudam Sanathoi Devi and Narender Grewal storming into the semi-finals in their respective events on the third day of competitions at the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea.

Sanathoi beat Amgalanjargal Sangidorj of Mongolia in a 2-0 'Win By Round' (WBR) verdict in a dominating performance in her Sanda 52kg category quarter-final contest at Ganghwa Dolmens Gymnasium in Incheon.

The Manipuri will now meet Zhang Luan of China in the semi-finals on Tuesday.

Later, Grewal also outplayed his Pakistani opponent Abdullah in the men's Sanda 60kg quarter-final contest in an identical 2-0 'Win By Round' (WBR) verdict.

Grewal will face Jean Claude Saclag of Philippines in the semi-finals on Tuesday.

However, Sajan Lama came a cropper in both men's Nanquan and Nangun events. He was ninth in Nanquan with a score of 9.06 while he finished 13th in Nangun with a score of 7.95.

In men's Sanda 75kg, Rajani Deori lost 0-2 on a WBR verdict to Ngo van Sy of Vietnam in the quarter-finals.

India have so far won three medals in Wushu in the history of Asian Games. W Shandyarani Devi won a silver in women's Sanda 60kg in 2010, while M Bimoljit Singh bagged a bronze each in men's Sanda 60kg event in 2006 and 2010.
