The Asian Games is a multi-sport event which has competitors from all across Asia competing. The games were founded in 1949 when the Asian Games Federation (AGF) was formed in New Delhi, India which was also the host for the first edition.
When the Second World War finished, many of the new independent countries came from Asia and desire a new competition that wouldn't involve violence. During the Olympics, China and Philippines were proposing the renew the Far Eastern Games with more countries from the region but the plans were removed when the India Olympic Committee decided that it would be better for a new 'Asian Style Olympics'. This concept of the Asian Games was born with the first edition being held in New Delhi.
