On April 16, the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) conference approved in principle the 40-event proposal of the Guangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee. With the addition of the OCA proposed equestrian event, the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games events will be increased to 41, setting a new record.

In the 41 events, 27 are Olympic events and 13 are non-Olympic events. The four new events are dragon boat racing, roller-skating, competitive dance and Go; the other nine non-Olympic events are karate, martial arts, rugby, bowling, billiards, squash, Sepak Takraw, Kabaddi and golf.

Kabaddi originated in Western Asia. The raider enters the opponent's court chanting the word "kabaddi" while holding his breath and has to continue to do so until he returns to his home court. The purpose of the game is to reach the highest score by touching or capturing the opposing team's players, while continuously chanting "kabaddi". Points are scored by raiding into the opponents' court and touching as many defense players as possible without getting caught.
