The 100-day countdown until The 19th Asian Games Hangzhou 2022 has begun. A torch-lighting ceremony took place at Liangzhu Ancient City in the Zhejiang provincial capital to mark the start of the countdown. 

Furthermore, the design of the medals for the Games has been revealed. 

See the medals in the video below accompanied by the official music for the Games:

According to Xinhua, the circular medal embedded in square jade is inspired by the spirit of Liangzhu – an ancient civilization stretching back around 5,000 years. 

On the medal, one can see the ripples of the water along with the bridge on Hangzhou’s famous West Lake.

The Games were originally scheduled to take place from September 10-25, 2022. However, due to China’s implementation of ‘dynamic zero-COVID,’ the event was later postponed. 

The event will now take place September 23-October 8, 2023 and will retain the official name, The 19th Asian Games Hangzhou 2022.

It marks the third time China has hosted the Asian Games – organized by the Olympic Council of Asia – having hosted Beijing 1990, Guangzhou 2010 and now Hangzhou 2022 (postponed until 2023). 

Athletes from Asian countries will compete in 40 sports.
