Organizers of the upcoming Asian Games in Incheon opened their athletes’ village for the first time today. The opening allows a sneak peek into newly constructed facilities that will accommodate some 14,500 athletes and officials during the continental competition.
The Asian Games will run from Sept. 19 to Oct. 4. Incheon, a metropolitan city lying just west of the capital, is the third South Korean host of the Asian Games, after Seoul in 1986 and Busan in 2002.
The athletes’ village is located in Guwol-dong in the central part of the city. According to the organizers, it’s about a 40-minute drive from Incheon International Airport and a 20-minute drive from the Main Media Center to be used during the Asian Games.
The village features 2,220 units in 22 new apartment buildings in three blocks.
