However, the 2014 Asian Games was given to Incheon, Korea so the 2014 Manila Asian Games is erroneous.
Manila hosted the 1954 Asian Games and the country won 14 Golds 14 Silvers 17 Bronzes - its best performance EVER. The Asian Games has more events than the Olympics by the way. By 2012, the Olympics will have 26 sports in its line-up while the Asian Games by 2010 will have 42 including uniquely Asian sports like Sepak Takraw, Kabaddi, Dragon Boat racing and others. Not to mention, China dominates these games and the games only attract few guests (fewer than the Olympics). It doesn't make financial sense for us
Most likely, this is just another fanciful thinking from some people but it's okay, nothing wrong with that. I hope it won't get pushed so some people could get rich. At the moment, I'm contented with hosting the Southeast Asian Games.
