AsPC President Majid Rashed commented: “We’re delighted to announce the full list of sports which will give certainty to the athletes and NPCs planning for the AIchi-Nagoya Asian Para Games. Coming two years after Paris and two years ahead of LA 2028, our Games enable athletes to truly test their progress in a large-scale multi-sport environment.

“They also help keep the excitement and interest in para-sport going, with lots of media coverage expected for NPCs who may not send large delegations to the Paralympic Games. We’re immensely proud of our regional games and the scale and reach that they have. They play a vital role in developing the Paralympic Movement in Asia.”
