“We have no doubt that the Hangzhou Asian Games will be the best ever Asian Games,” OCA Director General Husain Al Musallam said in a statement following the governing body’s venue tour and three-year countdown ceremony in Hangzhou.

“We have no doubt that we will deliver a high standard of Games and a high level of preparation.

“A lot of sports started in Asia and went to the Olympic Games, such as table tennis and judo. We are proud of what we are doing and proud of our achievements.”
