The 19th Asian Games, held in Hangzhou, People’s Republic of China from September 23 to October 8, 2023, witnessed an impressive gathering of over 12,000 athletes representing all 45 member nations of the Olympic Council of Asia.
This grand sporting event featured a staggering total of 481 different events across various sports. What makes it even more significant is that competitions in nine specific sports—archery, artistic swimming, boxing, breaking, hockey, modern pentathlon, sailing, tennis, and water polo—also doubled as Olympic qualifiers. This means that athletes were not only competing for Asian Games glory but also striving to secure coveted quotas for the Paris 2024 Olympics.
It was an exciting time for sports enthusiasts as they watched athletes from diverse backgrounds and cultures come together to showcase their talent and compete on the grand stage of the 19th Asian Games.
