During the meeting several important issues were discussed. Mr. Yu, Kyung Sun, ASTC President, expressed in his report that the ASTC is on the right track moving forward. And he and KTF have tried best to include Mixed Team Relay event in 2014 Incheon Asian Games. He highlighted “including the new discipline in the next Asian Games means more than just one more medal. It will be a mile stone for our sport development because the discipline will boost women development in Asia and provide more opportunities to emerging NFs.
The bid conditions for the Next Asian Championships have been finalized. The mixed team relay was included and LOC need to provide one more day accommodations and meals to the participating NFs. 2012 Asian Championships will be hosted from 13th to 15th of April in Tateyama city, Japan.
