The 15th Asian Games, officially known as the XV Asiad, is Asia's Olympic-style sporting event that was held in Doha, Qatar from December 1 to December 15, 2006.

Doha was the first city in its region and only the second in West Asia (following Tehran in 1974) to host the games.

There were 46 disciplines from 39 events scheduled to be contested. It was the first time that all 45 member nations of the Olympic Council of Asia took part in this event. Also, Eurosport broadcasted the event, marking the first time that the European continent could watch this Asian sporting event.
