The 2010 Asian Para Games (officially known as the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Para Games) was a multi-sport event held in Guangzhou, China from December 12–19, 2010, in which athletes with physical disabilities competed against one another. The Games replaced the FESPIC Games (Far East and South Pacific Games for the Disabled), and were held two weeks after the conclusion of the 16th Asian Games.[3] A total of 2,512 athletes from 41 Asian National Paralympic Committees participated in the Games, competing in 19 sports.[4] In the Games, 17 world and 82 Asian records were broken, compared with 3 world and 103 Asian records in the 2010 Asian Games.[4][5]

Athletes from 31 nations earned medals at the Games, and athletes from 20 of these nations won at least one gold medal. Competitors from the host nation, China, led all medal categories; they won more than half the total gold medals (185), the most silver medals (118), the most bronze medals (88) and the most medals overall (391, nearly 38% of all medals awarded). Japanese athletes claimed 103 medals in total (including 32 golds), earning second spot on the table. South Korea and Iran both won 27 gold medals, but South Korea's silver-medal count (43) helped it clinch third position on the table; Iran, with 24 silvers, finished in the fourth spot.

Chinese swimmer Zhi Guo won six medals (five gold and one silver) and was the most medalled athlete at the Games, as well as the athlete with the most gold medals. Kitsana Jorchuy of Thailand won four golds in athletics, and was the most successful non-Chinese athlete at the Games. Rong Jing and Zhang Lei of China were the most successful athletes outside of athletics or swimming; both won three medals (two gold and one silver) in wheelchair fencing.[6]

Medal table[edit]

The ranking in this table is consistent with International Paralympic Committee convention in its published medal tables. By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals the athletes from a nation have won (in this context, a "nation" is an entity represented by an National Paralympic Committee). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next, and then the number of bronze medals. If nations are still tied, equal ranking is given; they are listed alphabetically by IPC country code.

A total of 1,020 medals (341 gold, 338 silver and 341 bronze medal) were awarded. Two bronze medals were awarded per event in wheelchair fencing (except women's team épée) and judo (except women's 48-, 57-, 63- and 70-kg categories).[8][9][10] In athletics only three athletes participated in some events, thus bronzes were not awarded in four women's events (shot put – F35/36,[11][a] 400 m – T12,[12][b] 200 m – T12[13][b] and 100 m – T12[14][b]) and the men's discus throw – F51/52/53,[15][c] long jump – F36,[16][a] 1500 m – T11[17][b] and 1500 m – T37.[18][a] A tie for second place in the men's high jump – F42 event[c] meant that two silvers were awarded; in this event, all medals were won by Chinese athletes.[19] In badminton, due to the participation of only three players in the women's singles BMSTL2 event,[d] no bronze medal was awarded.[20][21] Only two athletes participated in women's −82.50 kg event of powerlifting, so no bronze was awarded.[22] In women's wheelchair basketball, only three teams participated and no bronze was awarded.[23]
