The Asian Games follow the sports programme of the Olympic Games, with swimming and athletics as the core sports, as well as featuring disciplines which reflect the diverse sporting culture of the Asian continent such as sepaktakraw (South East Asia), kabaddi (South Asia) and wushu (EastAsia). The inaugural Asian Games took place in New Delhi, India, in 1951 with 11 countries competing in six sports.
