Asian Games: 210 athletes from 18 sports make squad for September's Incheon Games

The Singapore National Olympic Council announced on Friday that 210 athletes from 18 sports have made the first cut to represent Singapore at September's Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea.

Sailing, bowling, and swimming - the three sports that accounted for Singapore's four golds at the 2010 Guangzhou Games - were included in the list.

Singapore sent 240 athletes from 23 sports for the 2010 edition. More athletes will likely be added to the Incheon squad after the appeals committee convene again on April 24.

Singapore's Commonwealth Games squad also saw an addition of 11 athletes from gymnastics and weightlifting. That makes a total of 82 from seven sports who are headed for Glasgow, Scotland, in July.
