a glitzy sports show and a multi-billion-dollar spending spree isolated Turkmenistan wants to show itself to the world Turkmenistan a gas-rich former Soviet nation in Central Asia has comparatively little contact with the outside world and sees few foreign visitors Its authoritarian government is regularly criticized by human rights organizations Keen to turn his country – which has never won an Olympic medal – into a sports power President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov’s administration has spent $5 billion on arenas hosting the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games Previously a low-key offshoot of the Asian Games the event was reimagined Sunday with a lavish opening ceremony that stressed Turkmenistan’s love of animals featuring acrobats on horseback and a dog handler leading the athletes’

of “Arkadag” Turkmen for “The Protector” The spending on the games is a vast sum for a country of 5 million people which is mostly desert and has widespread poverty Besides the arenas which make up Ashgabat’s so-called Olympic Village the government also splashed out $23 billion on an airport terminal shaped like a falcon The pre-games construction was allegedly marred by what human rights
