The opening of the 17th Asian Games kicks off with an elaborate ceremony in Incheon.
With a deep talent pool of Olympic and world champions, the swimming competition at the Asian Games is shaping up as the most intriguing event in Incheon.
The 2014 Incheon Asian Games will officially kick off on September 19th. The most eye-catching event would be the opening ceremony, which will be held at Incheon Asiad Stadium.
2014 Incheon Asian Games kicks off later this week, but the football matches are already underway. Several games must be played before the opening ceremonies so the tournament is completed before the end of the Games.
