Guangzhou Asian Games 2010

Guangzhou Asian Games 2010 Medal Tally
» More medal records
  • Duration: November 12 to 27, 2010
  • Host City: Guangzhou
  • Co-Host Cities: Shanwei, Dongguan and Foshan.
  • Participation: 45 Asian nations joined this event in 42 different sports.

The Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games, or the XVI Asiad, as it is also known, will most likely follow the impressive pattern set by the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, i.e., the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games will most likely be a spectacular event. The event, which takes place later this fall (November 12th-27th), will also be the last of its kind, since the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), under whose auspices the Asiad is held, has decided to restructure the event, such that it will no longer be on the sweeping scale that it has developed into in recent years.

Given that the current host is China and given that the XVI Asiad marks the end of an era, as it were, the Chinese hosts are most likely to make the XVI Asiad a sports celebration to remember, so if you are a diehard sports enthusiast, the place to be during the latter half of November of this year is decidedly Guangzhou!

Introduction to Guangzhou

Asian GamesThe city of Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, is situated at the landward (northwestward) end of the Pearl River Estuary, the mouth of which estuary is flanked by the cities of Macau on the left/west and Hong Kong on the right/east. The city of Shenzhen, situated just north of Hong Kong, with its large, hypermodern international airport (Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport (SZX), about 110 kilometers southeast of Guangzhou), serves an alternative access point to Guangzhou, otherwise the main airport at Guangzhou is Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN), located about 35 kilometers north-northeast of the heart of Guangzhou.

Guangzhou is a beautiful, bustling port city that combines modern skyscrapers with rivers, canals and green parks in a way that is without parallel in China. There is little manufacturing here, though the city boasts a modern industrial park where high tech equipment is fabricated. Guangzhou thrives on its financial district, its real estate sector and its tourism. Much of the surrounding terrain is crisscrossed by waterways, since numerous upland rivers, including the Pearl River itself, empties into the estuary of the same name that leads to the South China Sea.

There are numerous tourist sites in and around Guangzhou, including a memorial to Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the George Washington (and Thomas Jefferson) of China, recognized and respected by Chairman Mao himself. But the city of Guangzhou, with its greenery, its many waterways and its mild climate, is a great place to stroll about and to just relax after shopping and dining to one's heart's content.
