The Asian Para Games scheduled to take place in Hangzhou between October 9 and 15 have been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Organisers said a new schedule will be announced in the near future.

The announcement follows the postponement of the Asian Games to 2023 earlier this month.

In a statement, Jim Luk, Chef De Mission of the Hong Kong Delegation to the Asian Para Games, said he understood the decision.

He said he hoped that all stakeholders and athletes could work together to adjust their physical and mental states to make the best preparations.

The Hong Kong Paralympic Committee says it will closely communicate with all stakeholders, including athletes, coaches, and sports associations in the mean time.
