 History of Asian Games

Asian Games: The Asian Games, also known as Asiad, is a continental multi-sport event held every four years among athletes from all over Asia. The Games were regulated by the Asian Games Federation (AGF) from the first Games in New Delhi, India, until the 1978 Games. Since the 1982 Games, they have been organized by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), after the breakup of the Asian Games Federation. The Games are recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and are described as the second-largest multi-sport event after the Olympic Games.

In its history, nine nations have hosted the Asian Games. Forty-six nations have participated in the Games, including Israel, which was excluded from the Games after their last participation in 1974.

The most recent games were held in Jakarta and Palembang, Indonesia from 18 August to 2 September 2018. The next games are scheduled for Hangzhou, China between 10 and 25 September 2022. Since 2010, host cities are contracted to manage both the Asian Games and the Asian Para Games, in which athletes with physical disabilities compete with one another. The Asian Para Games are held immediately following the Asian Games.

Asian Games 2018

The 2018 Asian Games (Indonesian: Pesta Olahraga Asia 2018, Asian Games 2018), officially known as the 18th Asian Games and also known as Jakarta–Palembang 2018, was a pan-Asian multi-sport event held from 18 August to 2 September 2018 in the Indonesian cities of Jakarta and Palembang. The Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) originally awarded the games to Hanoi, Vietnam on November 2012, but the hosting rights were given up seventeen months later. Indonesia, which originally finished second in the bid, was considered as the strongest replacement candidate and eventually awarded the rights amid the 2014 games. Surabaya, the city put forward during the bid, was replaced by Jakarta and Palembang, having hosted the 2011 Southeast Asian Games together.

For the first time, the Summer Asian Games were co-hosted by two cities; the Indonesian capital of Jakarta (which was hosting the Games for the first time since 1962), and Palembang, the capital of the South Sumatra province. Events were held in and around the two cities, including venues in Bandung and the provinces of West Java and Banten. The opening and closing ceremonies of the Games were held at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta. Several non-Olympic events were trimmed from the event program, but several new disciplines being introduced at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo (including 3-on-3 basketball) were added. eSports and canoe polo were also contested as demonstration sports.

China led the medal tally for the tenth consecutive time. North and South Korea fielded a unified team during the opening ceremony and selected events and also won their first-ever gold medal as a unified team at a multi-sport event. 6 world, 18 Asian and 86 Asian Games records were broken during the Games, while Japanese swimmer Rikako Ikee was announced as the most valuable player.

Jakarta Palembang 2018

As President of the Organising Committee, Thohir was a key figure during last year’s Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, an event widely praised for its organization and which has paved the way for a bid from the Indonesian capital for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

He received his award during a reception held here on the eve of the 38th OCA General Assembly from its President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah.

“Representing Indonesia, both state leaders, executive committees, volunteers, and also the people of Indonesia, I feel proud of the award given by OCA for the 2018 Asian Games,” Thohir, one of Indonesia’s most high-profile businessmen and a former owner of Serie A club Inter Milan, told delegates here.

“This award is for Indonesia, which has successfully held the best Asian Games which received appreciation from all over the world.”

Football Association (FA), the ruling body for English football (soccer), founded in 1863. The FA controls every aspect of the organized game, both amateur and professional, and is responsible for national competitions, including the Challenge Cup series that culminates in the traditional Cup Final at Wembley.

The FA helped organize Scottish, Welsh, and Irish associations in the late 1800s to supervise the game in those countries. It later joined the Fédération Internationale de Football Association(FIFA) to formulate rules of international competition.

In the early 21st century, the FA represented about 37,000 clubs and millions of players. Its activities included producing instructional materials for coaches, players, and referees, advising foreign football organizations, approving rules and regulations of English leagues, and serving as a court for those charged with having broken such rules. FA headquarters are in London.
