The 4th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, which is also counted as the 4th Asian Indoor Games and designated as AIGs 4 was held in Incheon, South Korea, from 29 June to 6 July 2013, despite the ongoing 2013 Korean crisis. It was initially slated for Doha, Qatar, after the country cancelled the last edition of Asian Indoor Games in 2011.[2][3] However, Incheon was chosen as a replacement instead by the OCA.[2][4] This event also acted as a test event and a prelude to the 2014 Asian Games.

Venues[edit]

Nine different venues were used for these Games:[5]

  • Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium – opening and closing ceremonies. It will also host dancesport and electronic sports;
  • Anyang Hogye Gymnasium – bowling;
  • Songdo Global University Campus and Dongbu Student Gymnasium – futsal;
  • Sangnoksu Gymnasium – indoor kabaddi and kurash;
  • Dowon Aquatics Center – short-course (25m) swimming;
  • Songdo Convensia – cue sports (billiard sports);
  • Yonsei International Campus – chess and baduk (Go)
  • Dowon Gymnasium – kickboxing and muay

Participating nations[edit]

Barame, Chumuro, and Vichuan

All 45 member countries of the Olympic Council of Asia were invited to compete at these Games.[4] However, 43 OCA countries took part in this edition. North Korea and Timor-Leste declined to send their athletes to these Games.[1] Indian athletes participated the Games under the Olympic flag because the Indian Olympic Association was suspended.
