Hangzhou 2022 unveiled the sports versions of the robot mascots for the 19th Asian Games. The mascots were revealed in a 45-second video and also on the official Facebook account of organising committee HAGOC. Hangzhou 2022 will feature 40 sports, 61 disciplines and 482 events over the 16 competition days from September 10-25, 2022.

The organising committee has produced a series of colourful and fun-filled characters based on the official mascot triplets known as Lianlian, Chenchen and Congcong, featuring designs of stop-motion and animation with the most representative movements of the mascots.

Last year, Hangzhou 2022 unveiled the sports pictograms of the Games.

Baseball and softball competitions will be held at China's new under-construction baseball-softball megacentre in Shaoxing city, located southeast of Hangzhou.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of October 2021, with a total investment of around 1.8 billion yuan (about 254 million U.S. dollars), according to Xinhua, China's state-run news agency.

Women's softball made its Asian Games debut in 1990 in the Chinese capital Beijing, while men's baseball was a demonstration sport the same year. Both have been on the programme ever since.
