The Asian beach games is quite different to FAI organised events. The sanctioning body is the Olympic Council of Asia - OCA which is a group of National Olympic Associations in the Asian Region.
|This is a very big event, for example the [2014 Phuket ABG|cima:2014 ABG - Phuket] involved something in excess of 5000 people including c. 2697 athletes competing for 169 medals. |
|The ABG setup is a triangular arrangement identical to other games organised under the Olympic flag: |
|*Sanctioning body*: OCA - Invites all member National Olympic Associations to send Athletes. |
|*Local organizing committee*: Sanya City |
|*Local organizing committee*: SABGOC; Sanya Asian Beach Games Organizing Committee - The city which provides the infrastructure for the games. |
|*International Sports Federations*: Actually run the competitions; in the case of Paramotors this is FAI (CIMA). |
|CIMA has done this twice before, at the [2012 3rd Asian Beach Games at Haiyang, China|[otherCIMAevents:2012 3rd Asian Beach Games] and the [4th Asian Beach Games 2014, Phuket, Thailand|[cima:2014 ABG - Phuket] |
The way CIMA is involved is quite different to normal FAI competitions, both the above links contain a wealth of information on how it is done.
