Medals are awarded in each event, with gold for the first place, silver for second and bronze for third. This tradition started in 1951. The Asian Games are dominated by the People’s Republic of China. Competitors are entered by a National Olympic Committed (NOC) to represent their country of citizenship. National anthems and flags accompany the medal ceremonies, and tables showing the number of medals won by each country are widely used. In general, only recognized nations are represented, but a few non-sovereign countries are allowed to take part in. The special case of Taiwan was handled by having it compete as Chinese Taipei due to the political status of Taiwan.
