The 10th Asian Games were held from September 20, 1986 to October 5, 1986 in Seoul, South Korea. The venues and facilities of the 10th Asiad were the same venues and facilities used in the 1988 Summer Olympics because this was considered a test event

A total number of 3,345 athletes, coming from 27 countries, were competing in 25 events. Debuting sports were judo, taekwondo, women's cycling and women's Shooting. 83 Asian records and three world records were broken, while two world records were equalled in the Seoul Asiad.

Hammer thrower Murobushi Shgenobu from Japan won the Asian Games gold for the fifth successive time (1970–1986). But the star of the 1986 Asian Games was the Payyoli ExpressPilavullakandi Thekkeparambil Usha, better known as P. T. Usha. She won four gold medals (and one silver), becoming the biggest winner of athletics gold medals in the Seoul Asiad. That was the only result that Indian sports fans could be proud of.[citation needed] The timings of P. T. Usha in the 100 metres, 200 metres, 400 metres, 400 metres hurdles, 4 x 100 metres relay and 4 x 400 metres relay are national records to this day.

The Seoul Asiad marked the coming of age of South Korean sports. They came second in the Seoul Asiad in the medal tally, displacing Japan. From the 1986 Asiad onwards, China and South Korea would always finish one and two in the overall medal count (except the 1994 Asian Games in Hiroshima).
