Athletes from Kuwait will be able to compete under their own flag in the Asian Games after the International Olympic Committee provisionally lifted the country's suspension, which had been in place for nearly three years.The suspension was imposed after the IOC accused Kuwait's government of interfering in Olympic sport in the country.The suspension meant Kuwaiti athletes at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro had to compete under the title of "Independent Olympic Athlete".
