Asian Games in China postponed for a year due to corona

The decision was made by OCA, the Asian Olympic Committee, “after careful consideration of the size of the Games and the pandemic situation by all stakeholders.” Last month it was decided that the event would continue until 2022 despite the increasing number of infections.

Most international sporting events in China have been suspended since the outbreak of the corona pandemic, with the exception of the Beijing Winter Olympics. These took place in a brisk “biobubble” in February. Shortly after the games, the metropolis of Shanghai experienced one of the worst Covid-19 outbreaks in two years. Several million residents have been imprisoned since the beginning of April. Hangzhou is about 200 kilometers from Shanghai.

Australia announced last week that it would not send athletes to the Asian Games.
