This time, it will be different. The reason is because I'm going to share about the host city for the 2019 Asian Games. Supposedly, Asian Games will be held once in 4 years time. After the 2014 games, the largest sporting event in Asia should  be hosted in 2018. But, to make it nearer to the 2020 Summer Olympic Games, the games committee have decided to delay the games by one year.

16th ASEAN University Games 2012...

16th ASEAN University Games(AUG) was held in Vientiane, Laos. The biennial games ended yesterday and it was participated by all varsity athletes from 11 countries across the region.

The 17th AUG will be held in Sumatera Selatan, Indonesia in 2014. Let's hope there will be no more controversies as what happened during 2011 SEA Games. Yes, I'm sure Indonesians can host a better AUG compared to Laos.  But, I  hope they can also offer a better fair play.
