Asian Gamesalso known as XII Asiad were held from October 2to October 16, 1994in Hiroshima, Japan. The main theme of this edition was to promote peace and harmony among Asian nations. It was emphasized by the host because the venue was the site of the first atomic bomb attack in 1945.
This edition of the Asian Games saw two additions. One is the addition of the return of
Taiwan, officially known as the Republic of China. The other one is the addition of five Central Asian countries newly independent from the former Soviet Union: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistanand Uzbekistan. The Hiroshima Asian Games was the first to be held in a non-capital city. Due to the First Gulf War, Iraq was suspended from the games. Also, this was the only Asian Games to have a male-female pair as a mascot.
There were a total number of 6,828 athletes and officials involved, from 42 countries, with a total number of 34 events. Debut sports at this edition of the Asiad were
