Asian Games appearances (overview)

Israel participated in the 1958 Asian Games held in Tokyo, Japan, from 24 May to 1 June 1958. Following the 1958 games, Israel was unable to participate again until the 1966 Asian Games because during the 1962 Asian Games the host country Indonesia, refused to permit the participation of Israel due to political reasons, stating it would cause issues with their relationship with the Arab states.[1]
