The 3rd Asian Indoor Games were held in Vietnam on 30 October – 8 November 2009.

Mascot[edit]

The mascot of the 2009 event is the Ho chicken (Gà Hồ), a distinctly Vietnamese rare breed of chicken, familiar as a symbol in Vietnam. According to folklore, the chicken (particularly the rooster) has the five qualities of a man of honour: literacy, martial arts, physical strength, humanity and loyalty. The symbolism in the context of the AIGs is that the Ho chicken rising himself to welcome the sun is likened to the readiness of the sports industry of Vietnam to host this major event.
