After being accepted by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) this year, e-sports and breakdancing will debut as full medal sports at the 2022 Asian Games, while cricket will return in T20 format to increase audience enthusiasm.

India is a member of the Olympic Council of Asia’s (OCA) South Asian Zone and one of just seven countries to have competed in every edition of the Asian Games.

Except for the 1990 edition, India has won at least one gold medal at every Asian Games and has always finished in the top ten nations in the medal table. India has won 139 gold, 178 silver, and 299 bronze medals at the Asian Games thus far, and will try to add to that total this year. (Asian Games 2022)

Triathlon, athletics, wushu, roller skating, and weightlifting will be available for Oceania participants, including those from Australia and New Zealand. (Asian Games 2022)
