The 19th Asian Games, set to take place in Hangzhou, are on the verge of opening. This marks the third time that China has had the privilege of hosting this prominent sporting event.
The significance of the Asian Games cannot be understated, with the competition intertwining athletes and host cities throughout the continent for the past 33 years. Each capital city that has hosted the games has its own unique story to share.
Reflecting on the past, 33 years ago, on September 22, 1990, the 11th Asian Games commenced in Beijing. The opening ceremony at Beijing Workers’ Stadium was accompanied by the powerful anthem “Asian Heroes,” reminding attendees of the awe-inspiring mountains and rivers that define the Asian landscape. It was a historic moment for China, as this was the first time the country had the honor of being the host.
Fast forward 13 years, and once again the Asian Games found their way to China. On November 12, 2010, the 16th edition of the games kicked off in Guangzhou. The theme of the opening ceremony, “Sunrise in the East,” echoed hope for an exciting future. It was an opportunity for Guangzhou to showcase its cultural heritage, including traditional sports like dragon boat racing, which was featured as an official competition event for the first time. The Chinese team’s remarkable feat of winning 199 gold medals brought immense pride and joy to the nation.
Looking ahead to September 2023, China will proudly welcome the Asian Games for the third time. Hangzhou, a city with a thousand years of history, will serve as the vibrant center of Asia during the event. The theme song for the Hangzhou Asian Games, titled “Same Love,” celebrates the unity and shared aspirations of Asian people. It promotes the values of love, cooperation, and strength, urging the world to witness every memorable moment of the games.
As anticipation builds for the upcoming Asian Games, the unwavering dream for this event remains the same. We eagerly anticipate the participation of athletes from all over, and we hope to witness outstanding performances that will leave a lasting impression.
