Asian Indoor Games | Wikipedia audio article


The Asian Indoor Games were a multi-sport
event that was contested every two years among athletes representing countries from Asia. The games were regulated by the Olympic Council
of Asia. The first games were held in 2005 in Bangkok,
Thailand. The competition consisted of indoor sports
with TV broadcasting potential, a number of which are not included in the Asian Games
and Winter Asian Games Programs and are not Olympic sports. The sports program included electronic sports,
extreme sports, aerobics, acrobatics, indoor athletics, dance sports, futsal, inline hockey,
finswimming, and 25 metres short course swimming. The 2007 Asian Indoor Games in Macau also
saw the first major test of FIBA 3×3, a formalized version of three-on-three basketball that
saw its official worldwide debut at the 2010 Youth Olympics. FIBA 3×3 was also contested in the 2009 Games. Doha was given the rights to hold the fourth
edition scheduled for 2011, but a year later, in June 2008, the Qatar Olympic Committee
officially withdrew as host citing “unforeseen circumstances”. In response, the OCA said that the 2009 Asian
Indoor Games would be the last edition of the games. The Asian Indoor Games and Asian Martial Arts
Games would then combine, becoming the quadrennial Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games. The inaugural event was held in Incheon, South
Korea in 2013.==List of Asian Indoor Games====
