Asian Indoor Games begins in Ashgabat

Seven years after securing the hosting rights, the capital of Turkmenistan and the largest city in Central Asian region, Ashgabat, unveiled its sprawling newly built sports complex to the world as the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games opened in the White Marble city yesterday.

A compact five-member delegation from Cambodia arrived in Ashgabat on Saturday morning ahead of a glitteringy opening ceremony at the 45,000 capacity Olympic Stadium.

Due to budgetary pressures and the close proximity of this event to the just concluded SEA Games in Malaysia, Cambodia confined its participation to one event in dancing, passing over some of the Kingdom’s favoured martial art disciplines like taekwondo.

Chan Viktor and Preap Daniella are the two dancers in action.
