Asian Winter Games Sapporo 2017
The 2017 Asian Winter Games is the third Asian games that will be hosted in Sapporo, Japan. These Games were originally scheduled for 2018. However, in the Olympic Council of Asia's general assembly in Singapore on July 3, 2009, the committee decided to move the Games one year before the 2018 Winter Olympics. Sapporo and Obihiro were named as the host cities on January 31, 2011, as sole bidding city. The hosting contract was signed by Tsunekazu Takeda, the president of the Japanese Olympic Committee. It will be third time that Sapporo hosting the event and fourth time in Japan. Previously the city was held the Games in 1986 and 1990, and Aomori was held in 2003. Before hosting the first Asian Winter Games, held in Sapporo, this city was host of the 1972 Winter Olympics.

This slogan was created with the intent of inspiring athletes and locals alike to pursue their ambitions and make the Games a great success, to share winter aspirations and to move forward toward the achievement of further goals.
