Asian Athletics Championships

The Asian Athletics Championships is an event organized by the Asian Athletics Association. The competition courted controversy with the IAAF when political in-fighting arose after Israel were excluded from participation in 1977. That edition of the competition was cancelled, with championships between 1979 and 1989 being regarded by the IAAF as unofficial, called the "Asian Track and Field Meeting" as a result. This situation was resolved when Israel began competing in European Athletic Association events in 1990.[1]
