The 1962 Asian Games, officially known as the Fourth Asian Games,[1] was a multi-sport event held in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 24 August to 4 September 1962. This edition of the Asian Games was a subject of major international controversy when the host nation denied two Asian Games Federation members, Republic of China and Israel, to participate in the Games.[1][2] Consequently, the International Olympic Committee revoked the Indonesia's membership and barred it from participating in the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.[2] The Games and related infrastructure development projects in Jakarta were heavily funded by the Soviet Union and were given "top priority" by the then-President of Indonesia, Sukarno.[3]
