Media To Be Part Of Games

The hosts of the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games want the media to be included in the 500-member contingent from Oceania to the September event in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

This was announced at the Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC) executive board meeting in Brisbane, Australia.

It will be the first time that Oceania athletes have been invited to compete in these Games following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC) president Dr Robin Mitchell, Sheik Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah president of the Olympic Committee of Asia and the president of Turkmenistan, His Excellency Gurbanguly Berdmimuhamedov in 2014.

“It’s all expenses paid for by Turkmenistan, airfares and all ground costs which includes accommodation,” said Dr Mitchell.

The 17 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) members of ONOC plus the six associate members have been invited to the Asian Indoor Games.
