 Australia or the Asian Olympic Council of Hangzhou Asian Games has been formally invited


Australias Olympic Committee President John Cotts said Thursday that he has been striving for Australia and other Oceanian countries to enter the Asian Games for decades. Australia cherishes this opportunity and believes that Oceanias neighbors will be willing to join. Cotts said that due to the limited number of participants, some athletes may have to be eliminated, but the most important thing is that they finally qualified for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. Although the process is difficult, decades of efforts have not been wasted, and joining the Asian Games will eventually benefit athletes in Oceania.

Due to the lack of competitors in Oceania, Australia has been hoping to enter the Asian sports circle and improve the competitiveness of its athletes. The Australian Olympic Committee, on behalf of Oceania, has repeatedly submitted applications to participate in the Asian Games, which were rejected by the Asian Olympic Council. The latest was in September 2017, when the Asian Olympic Council rejected Australias request to participate in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games on the grounds that Oceania athletesparticipation in the Asian Games will result in too large a scale of the events and cause too heavy burden to the organizers. Australian athletes were invited to participate in the 3rd East Asian Games held in Osaka, Japan, but were not eligible for medals. They were also invited to participate in the Asian Winter Games held in Japan and the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games held in Turkmenistan. Australian football is eligible to participate in the Asian Cup and World Cup Asian Qualifications, as the Australian Football Association joined the Asian Football Association in 2006.
