2013 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games

The 4th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (Korean: 2013년 실내 무도 아시안 게임), 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.
