INCHEON -- A week since the opening of the 17th Asian Games at Incheon, South Korea, 17 world records have been set by the Asian athletes, the Olympic Council of Asia said on Saturday.

The world records have been set in the sporting discipline of archery, shooting and weightlifting. Previously at the Guangzhou Asian Games in 2010, only three world records were broken.

From the 17 records set, China, Chinese Taipei, South Korea and DPR Korea set the most records.

"With more and more number of records being set at the Asian Games year, it shows that the Asian Games is at the same caliber as other major games," the OCA said in a statement.
