    Asian Beach Games 2008

    About a month ago in Bali, Indonesia, the inaugural 2008 Asian Beach Games came to its conclusion.
    Intended to promote sports and culture, the games (held every two years) encourage tourism,
    support local economies and allow host countries like Indonesia to present a more global face to the world.
    The 2008 games brought 6,000 athletes to compete in 71 events in 19 sports.

    Sports included well-known games like beach volleyball and triathlon, and some sports better
    known to asians, like sepak takraw, kabaddi and pencak silat.

    The next Asian Beach Games are scheduled to be hosted by Oman in the year 2010.
