2014 Incheon Asian Games is Soon to be Over
From September 19, 2014 to October 4, 2014,
the Asian Games is being held in Incheon right now,
which is about an hour away by car from
Korea’s capital Seoul and is considered one of the biggest cities in Korea.
13,000 athletes from 45 countries participate and enter in 36 events.
At the moment China is no. 1, Korea no.2, Japan no.3 and Kazakhstan no.4.
In the Asian Games China, Korea, and Japan mostly take the top ranks.
These three countries were also in top 10 in 2012 London Olympics.
China was no.2, Korea no.5, and Japan no.11.
Sports follow economic size.
A country to break this is Kazakhstan.
China and Japan have the 1st and 2nd largest economies in the world.
Korea is about the 10th largest economy in the world.
However, Kazakhstan, which is only the 50th in the world economy,
ranked higher than the Netherlands and
New Zealand by being no.12 in 2012 London Olympics,
and is also no.4 in 2014 Incheon Asian Games that is being held right now.
A sports festival for 4.4 billion people of Asia,
the Incheon Asian Games is nearly heading to its end.
