All told, 14 world records were set during the games, which brought together more than 9,500 athletes from 45 countries. More than 40 Asian records also fell.

"These numbers show the development of sports in the region," said Sheik Ahmad al-Fahad al-Sabah, president of the Olympic Council of Asia. "Everybody was satisfied with the success and the level of the games."
