2022 Asian Para Games Postponed

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Hangzhou 2022 Asian Para Games organizing committee (HAPGOC) and the Asian Paralympic Committee (APC) announced the postponement of the 2022 Asian Para Games, originally scheduled to take place on October 9-15, 2022.

The announcement follows the decision taken by the Olympic Council of Asia and the HAGOC, the games organizing committee, to postpone the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games due to the size of the Games and the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A taskforce comprising the APC, the Chinese Paralympic Committee and HAPGOC will now work on rescheduling the Games to take place in 2023. A further announcement on this is expected in the near future. The emblem, slogan and year of the Games will remain unchanged.

APC President Majid Rashed said: “The Games preparations have been going very well and HAPGOC was ready to deliver outstanding games. This was not an easy decision to make but we have taken it now to give a level of certainty to the IFs, NPCs and athletes who were planning to attend the Games. We will now work with the organizing committee on securing a new date that works for the para-sport calendar.”
