The 3rd Asian Indoor Games (Vietnamese: Đại hội Thể thao Trong nhà châu Á 2009) were held in Vietnam from 30 October till 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 roosters) have 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 Gà Hồ rooster rising himself to welcome the sun is linked to the readiness of the sports industry of Vietnam to host this major event.
