Asian Games 2010 Guangzhou

2010 Asian Games are scheduled to be held from November 12th to November 27th 2010 in Guangzhou, China. The games will be co-hosted by Dongguan, Foshan and Shanwei. 476 events in 42 sports will be contested by athletes, and 53 competition venues and 17 training venues will be used for the Games.

The mascots of the Asian Games 2010 Guangzhou are five sporty goats, respectively named Xiang, He, Ru, Yi, Le Yangyang which mean harmony, blessings, success and happiness. The mascot design is based on the legend of the Five Goats in Guangzhou. Legend goes like this: in over 2000 years ago, Guangzhou was a barren countryside, and people of Guangzhou were suffering famine. One day, five immortals who took five goats which have an ear of corn in the mouth fly on Guangzhou. The immortals prayed for an end to famine, then flew into the sky as the five goats turned into fossils. Since then Guangzhou became a beautiful and affluent place. The five goats’ fossils become the sign of Guangzhou, and the 2010 Asian Games LOGO design is also based on the fossils.

The 2010 Asian Games Guangzhou flame was ignited at the Juyongguan Great Wall Beijing that began the one-month Asian Games torch relay in Beijing, Harbin, Changchun, Haiyang and 21 cities of the Guangdong province. The flame will burn at main stadium of the Aisan Games Guangzhou.
