6th Asian Beach Games postponed anew due to COVID-19

The sixth edition of the Asian Beach Games has been postponed once more.

The event that was supposed to take place in Sanya, China has been pushed to another year – this time due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic.

“The OCA consulted all members of the Executive Board to seek their approval of the move to postpone, and it was met with unanimous agreement,” the Olympic Council of Asia said in a statement.

“The decision aims at serving the common interests of all related National Olympic Committees and ensuring the safety and health of the athletes and all relevant participants.”

The event was supposed to take place from November 28 to December 6 but was pushed to April 2 to 10. However, the Chinese government has deemed that it will not host any event for the time being.

The last Asian Beach Games took place in 2016 in Da Nang, Vietnam.

The Philippines had a two-gold, four-silver, and 15-bronze output in the continental meet, with Meggie Ochoa and Annie Ramirez winning the two golds.

Events that were scheduled to be played were

3×3 basketball, aquathlon, beach athletics, beach handball, beach kabaddi, beach soccer, beach volleyball, beach woodball, beach wrestling, dragon boat, jiu-jitsu, open water swimming, powerboat, powered paragliding, sailing, sport climbing, surfing, teqball, and water polo.

The Philippine Olympic Committee had earlier planned to send a strong contingent to the Sanya Games.
