By B.Narantuya

The “Incheon-2014” photo exhibition, sharing images from this year’s Asian Games, is being presented from October 27 to October 30, at Blue Moon Art Gallery.
A group of 22 journalists from the Mongolian Journalists Association documented the Asian Games for the first time. Official photographers Ch.Ganbat, E.Magnaibayar, B.Munkhzul and E.Hartsaga captured the highlights and special moments of the event on display in “Incheon-2014″.
The Asian Games, a multi-sport event celebrated every four years, was held in Incheon, South Korea, from September 19 to October 4, 2014. Global audiences kept in touch with all of the Asiad action over the Internet and through television broadcasts of the games.
Photographer E.Magnaibayar attended the 2012 London Summer Olympics and 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics previously. “I work in business and I am not a big fan of sports. But watching the sports at the Incheon Asian Games gave me the idea that this big occasion is a war between countries, in a peaceful way; where the war happens only through sports,” he said.
The Mongolian team made great achievements that had never before happened in the nation’s sports history, by winning a total of 21 medals, including five gold, four silver and twelve bronze medals. The overall achievement of the Mongolian team placed them at number 14 of 45 countries in the medal table, showing that the competence and ability of young Mongolian athletes are growing stronger. The Mongolian athlete’s achievements are seen as positively affecting the development of country. At the Incheon Asian Games, 233 athletes from Asia took part in 23 different sports.
Behind these photographs and broadcasts there is always the hard work of people. This exhibition includes about 100 photographs capturing the most exciting moments in the games. The exhibition is open to all people, giving viewers an opportunity to experience the Incheon 2014 Asian Games.
