Subject: Olympic Events have been included in 2018 Asian Games, Jakarta
 
Dear Sirs,
You will be pleased to know that Olympic Council of Asia has agreed to our proposal for inclusion of all the three sprinting events namely Keirin, Team Sprint and Sprint in the categories of ME and WE in the forthcoming Asian Games at Jakarta and the number of events in overall cycling categories have now increased to 24, while in the last edition of Asian Games at Incheon, the total medals at stake were 18 only. This is a remarkable achievement in the matter.
 
This has been possible because of the relentless efforts of Mr. Osama Al Shafar, President, ACC and Mr. Raja Sapta Oktohari, Vice President of ACC and your active support.
 
I thank you all for your co-operation in the matter.
 
The list of the events is given below: -
