The 10th Asian Games were held from Sept 20 to Oct 5, 1986, in Seoul, South Korea.

The venues and facilities of the 10th Asiad were the same as those used for the 1988 Summer Olympics because this was considered a test event.

The 1986's event attracted 4,839 athletes from 27 countries to compete in 25 sports.

Judo, taekwondo, women's cycling and women's shooting made their debuts at these games. At the Seoul Asiad, 83 Asian records and three world records were broken, while two world records were equaled.
