Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017

Recommended Posts

This is a shame they let Turkmenistan add whatever it wants to the competition ! there are so manyyyyy wrestling competition here, the real wrestling, Belt-wrestling (two different kind and both of them Freestyle and classical) , Turkmen Goresh (listed as Traditional wrestling), Kazakh Kureshi, Pahlawani wrestling (Iranian traditional wrestling), beside that we have Ju-jitsu, Sambo and Kurash which are a bit similar

 

Iran sent a big delegation, we have some of our top athletes here, including our A futsal team (World Cup bronze medalist) , our pro snooker players, top athletes in Cycling and Chess and also one of our Olympic champions in weightlifting. even though is some of our top sports (Wrestling, Weightlifting, Taekwondo) this is not an A team in general.

 

PS: As someone who follows wrestling A LOT ! I don't know that's the difference between belt-wrestling and Alysh !! they are exactly the same. :mumble:

Pretty sure those were the Akhal-Teke horses. Like the legendary horse Absent from my avatar that was in fact an Olympic champion from modern day Turkmenistan. :d

Well, I have no idea if this is the Opening ceremony, but the setting is quite unique (middle of the desert). :lol:

The opening ceremony was created by Italian Marco Balich, the creator of the OC of Torino 2006, Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016 and a lot of other events. I was really in hype, his events are fantastic!

Ashgabat 2017 Daily Recap: 16 September - Day -1

The first day of competition at the Ashgabat 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games saw medal events in Ju Jitsu and Traditional Wrestling, as well as round one competition in men’s and women's futsal. 

The host nation Turkmenistan began the competition with a hugely impressive effort, taking the bulk of the medals in both Ju Jitsu and Traditional Wrestling to finish the day with a total of 37 medals, including 16 golds. Next-best on the medal table through day one was Uzbekistan, with 13 medals.

 

Ju Jitsu

Day one of Ju Jitsu competition got things off to a fantastic start for the Turkmen squad as the host team scored their first Ashgabat 2017 gold medal in one of the very first events of the Games, with Jelilmuhammed Hojamuradov and Murad Gimmiyev taking the win in men’s Duo Classic competition. By the end of the day, the Turkmen Ju Jitsu athletes would take home a total of 13 medals from Saturday’s matches at the Ashgabat Martial Arts Centre, including six golds.

 

Traditional Wrestling

One of the fan-favourite competitions for the local Turkmen spectators opened Ashgabat 2017 competition on a thrilling note on Saturday, with the host nation dominating Traditional Wrestling Freestyle competition at the Main Indoor Arena. When it was all said and done, the Turkmen Traditional Wrestlers would take 24 medals on the first day of competition, including 10 golds.

Uzbekistan would be the only other nation to register any kind of notable success in the ring, managing to reach double-digits on their medal quest with a good balance of success from both their men’s and women’s squads. Their end tally for Traditional Wrestling competition on Saturday would be 12 medals, including two golds. 

 

Futsal

Futsal competition at Ashgabat 2017 opened on Saturday with first-round competition for both the men and women. Scores in general were somewhat lopsided, as can be expected in the first round of a lengthy tournament, but the 16-1 drubbing of Palestine by the powerhouse squad from the Islamic Republic of Iran in women’s competition was especially notable. 

Meanwhile, on the men’s side, Afghanistan put together one of the more impressive efforts of the day, easily handing the People’s Republic of China a 6-1 defeat.
