bidding results

City Country Votes

Incheon  South Korea 32

New Delhi  India 13

Two cities bid for the Games. Both New Delhi
New Delhi
(India) and Incheon (South Korea) submitted their formal bid on 2 December 2006 in Doha, Qatar.[5] The vote was held on 17 April 2007 at the Marriott Hotel in Kuwait City, Kuwait, during the OCA's general assembly. During the final presentation prior to voting, Incheon
Incheon
made a new offer, raising USD$20 million funds to support the countries that are yet to win a medal in the Games. It also offered free flight tickets and accommodation to all the participants, while India
India
did not make any changes to its offer.[6][7] All 45 members voted, with voting held in secret ballot. Later that day, it was announced that Incheon
Incheon
won the rights.[8] Though the vote results were not released, it was revealed that Incheon
Incheon
won by 32–13.[9] It was widely felt that Delhi's lack of enthusiasm to host the event was the primary reason for its loss. Then Union Sports Minister of India, Mani Shankar Aiyar, spoke strongly against Delhi hosting the games and argued that it was better if the money allocated by India's government for organizing the sporting event was spent on building facilities for the poor.[10] The Indian Olympic Association
Indian Olympic Association
(IOA) president revealed that India's Sports Minister remarks against hosting the Games was the main reason for New Delhi's loss.[11] The IOA delegation also added that the bids evaluation committee was concerned about pollution and traffic in Delhi.[12] Delhi offering US$200,000 to each team for games support against Incheon's offer of US$20 million to all 45 nations participating in the event could also have contributed to the defeat.[6] Development and preparation[edit] Venues[edit]

Concerns and controversies[edit] Main article: Concerns and controversies at the 2014 Asian Games Prior to the Games, there were several controversies over finances, lack of public interest,[99] transportation shortages for journalists,[100] and several administrative decisions regarding the opening ceremony and gala show.[101][102][103] Organizers were able to generate more interest but there were a few hundred empty seats in the 61,000-capacity stadium at the start of the opening ceremony.[104] Organizers also supplied more shuttle buses for the late-night shifts at the request of various international media organizations.[105] In addition, the OCA and FIBA
FIBA
failed to compromise on a couple of policies, causing one team to boycott the event and forcing three teams to find replacement players. The Qatari women's basketball team withdrew from the Games when FIBA
FIBA
reaffirmed its ban on hijab, citing safety concerns.[106] Basketball became the only sport to enforce a hijab ban in the Games. On the other hand, OCA policy on naturalized players contradicted the eligibility rules set by FIBA. The OCA disqualified United States-born players Quincy Davis, Andray Blatche, and Aaron Haynes from the Chinese Taipei, Filipino, and South Korean teams.[107][108] During the Games there were several controversies, mostly revolving around poor officiating. The vast majority of poor judging allegations occurred in boxing, highlighted by the controversial semifinal loss of Indian lightweight boxer Laishram Sarita Devi against eventual silver medalist Park Jina of South Korea.[109] The judging of the match, Sarita Devi's refusal to accept the bronze medal, and her questionable behavior at the medal ceremony received widespread international attention and sparked numerous debates.[110] The high volume of controversial boxing decisions led to accusations against the judges for widespread incompetence and host favoritism. Criticisms of the new scoring system have also been brought up.[111] Shooting,[112] and wrestling saw initial rulings by officials being overturned following appeals.[113] Some 1,920 samples from 1,600 athletes were tested during the Games. Six athletes tested positive for banned substances and were sent home from the Games, including two gold medalists that were stripped of their medals.[114] See also[edit]
