The capital of Turkmenistan welcomes guests for the Fifth Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG), the largest event in the Central Asian region. Sixty-five delegations will compete in 21 sports from 17th to 27th September. The choice of the competition program was inspired by a variety of Asian traditional sports.
The Olympic Committee has chosen Balich Worldwide Shows to produce the Opening Ceremony of AIMAG in Ashgabat, the Turkmen capital city. “The Spirit of Turkmenistan” is the title of the astonishing ceremony held at the newly built Ashgabat Olympic Stadium, a 45,000 seater venue located at the center of the Olympic complex. The show with its 7,631 performers was an inspiring song to the young generations which thanks to education and culture, will grow stronger, like the athletes competing in the games.
