2010 Guangzhou Asian Para Games

Date of Issue : 3 September 2010

The 2010 Asian Para Games, a parallel sport event for disabled Asian athletes, opens December 12 and closes December 19, 2010, two weeks after the conclusion of the 16th Asian Games. The event will be held in Guangzhou, China.

Approximately 5,500 athletes from 45 Asian member nations are expected to participate in this multisport competition. Competition and training venues plus all other facilities to be used for the 16th Asian Games will be converted to meet the disability-accessible requirements for Asian Para Games athletes, officials, staff and audience.

The 100-Day Countdown (Charity) Ceremony of the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Para Game was held at Tianhe Gymnasium in Guangzhou on September 3 night, and a commemorative stamp for the Games was unveiled.

The stamp design is not very special, but China seldom issue odd-shaped stamp. I am glad to have a self made FDC of this issue.
