Lin beat Indonesia's Tangkilisan Sualang by just over a second to break the Asian record and win gold in the men's S10 100 metre backstroke, touching in a time of 1min 08.74sec.

It was not the only Chinese success as his compatriots dominated in the pool once again to bring the country's overhaul swimming gold medal haul to a massive 48.

Jiexin Wang added a fourth gold to her tally in the women's S9 100m backstroke, while Jiaying Zhu took the honours in the S10 equivalent.

The women's S8 50m freestyle title went to Yajing Huang, Dong Lu took the women's S6 50m butterfly while Xiaobang Liu beat teammate Yongjia Cui to win the men's S9 100m backstroke.

Shiyun Pan claimed the spoils in the men's S7 50m freestyle.

Vietnam also celebrated success as Thang Tung Vo became the second most successful male swimmer at the Games by winning his fifth gold medal in the S5 50m butterfly, swiftly followed by victory for Thanh Trung Nguyen in the men's SM5 200m individual medley.

Hosts South Korea also closed with a double triumph, in the form of Wonsang Cho and Jungeun Kang, who won in the respective male and female SM14 200m individual medley races.

Over at the Ongnyeon International Shooting Range, South Korea won the final two gold medals on offer to top the overall shooting standings.

Jin-Ho Park and Young-Jun Jeon were the athletes to claim gold for the hosts.

Park equalled the Asian finals world record with a score of 457.5 to finish ahead of Abdulla Sultan Alayrani of the United Arab Emirates in the men's R7 50m rifle three positions SH1.

That reversed the result from August's World Championship final in Suhl.

Park's compatriot Jin-Hwa Jeon took the bronze.

Jeon prevailed in the mixed R9 50m rifle prone SH2 competition with an Asian record of his own, registering 615.7 to see off the challenge of China's Hongxiang Yuan, while compatriot Geun-Soo Kim took bronze.

There was bad news however for the hosts in the final of the inaugural Asian Games wheelchair rugby competition as they went down 60-40 to Japan.

After finishing fourth at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, Japan reinforced their position as the dominant Asian side in the sport with victory, while Malaysia defeated Indonesia 50-29 to claim bronze in both countries international debut in the sport.

In the penultimate day of powerlifting competition, China, South Korea, Iran and the UAE all claimed gold and Asian records in the process.

China's Xuemie Deng broke her own Asian record by one kilogram in the women's under 86kg category with a lift of 112kg to secure gold.

The other women's event saw home favourite Hyun-Jung Lee awarded top spot in the under 86kg, as she was the lighter competitor than Adeline Ancheta of the Philippines after both women lifted 115kg.

The UAE's Mohammed Khamis dominated the men's under 97kg division as his effort of 232kg added eight kilograms to the previous Asian record, held by Iranian Ali Sadeghzadehsalmani.

Sadeghzadehsalmani will not be too disappointed however as he moved up a division to the under 107kg class and proceeded to add a 0.5kg to the previous Asian record held by Iraq's Faris Al-Ajeeli, with a fourth lift of 232.5kg.

Meantime, the penultimate day of athletics action at the Asiad Main Stadium saw two world records set and an Iranian athlete to the fore again.

London 2012 bronze medal winner Ali Mohammadyari threw 45.49m to beat compatriot Parvis Golpasandhagh in the men's F56 discus.

Japan's Yukiko Kato was the other world record breaker on the day as she took the women's F20/41/46 shot put title with an effort of 12.21m.

Sato then went on to win the men's T42-47 100m crown in tandem with Tomoki Tagawa, Toru Suzuki and Atsushi Yamamoto.
