The Olympic Council of Asia was approved for formation in New Delhi,India during the Asian Games Federation (AGF) Council Meeting held on November 26, 1981, which was attended by duly accredited representatives of the affiliated Asian National Olympic Committees. One year later it was officially founded on December 5, 1982 in New Delhi during the IX Asian Games which were held there as the last games under the "AGF" umbrella. At the assembly late Sheikh Fahad Al-Sabah was elected the First OCA President. The OCA has replaced the AGF since.The AGF was the determined dream of its founder, the Late Mr. G.S. Sondhi of India, to promote development of an Asian identity, in fact an Asian Unity through sports.Despite initial setbacks it was formed on February 13, 1949 in New Delhi, where the delegates drafted a constitution. They decided to hold the Asian Games every four years, midway between the Olympic Games, and also agreed on the simple motto which was designed and proposed by Mr. Sondhi "Ever Onward" on top of an Orange Sun that represents the ever glimmering and warm spirit of the Asian people.Later in early 1983, Sheikh Fahad Al-Sabah added the five Olympic Rings on top of the original logo. The new logo is adopted as the official OCA Emblem. The Sun will be found in all Asian Games emblems in the future.History of Asian Sports development 1st Oriental Olympics Manila, Philippines 1913 Six countries participated in eight days, Philippines, Chinese Taipei, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong.2nd Far East Championships up to 10th Far East Championships until 1934 11th Oriental Championships The 11th OC was scheduled to be held in Tokyo, Japan in 1938.
