2022 Beijing Games
On track for Beijing 2022!
The last Winter Games in Pyongchang (where the Team France won a total of 15 Olympic and 20 Paralympic medals) passed the torch to Beijing, which then became the 24th host city of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
It is the second time that the Chinese capital will be put on the Olympic stage, after having received the summer delegations in 2008.
This is the slogan chosen by the organization of this Olympiad (among more than 70 proposals), promising us Games of sharing, unity and collective effort, in a vision of a common future.
The slogan "Together for a Shared Future" not only embodies the concept of sharing, but reflects the common aspirations of all countries to unite for a better future.
Chen Ning, general director of the department of culture and ceremonies of Beijing 2022.
These Games will be held:
- From February 4 to 20, 2022 for the Olympic Games
- From 4 to 13 March 2022 for the Paralympic Games
The Games in few figures
The competition schedule will be unprecedented. It will ensure equal visibility between men's and women's events. Nine mixed events are added since Rio 2016, bringing the total number of events to 18.
For the first time ever, all 206 National Olympic Committees (NOC) should have at least a female and male athlete on their respective Olympic teams.
C’est la toute première fois qu’une ville accueillera à la fois les jeux d’été (2008) et les jeux d’hiver.
Et même 45.44% d'athlètes femmes sur l'ensemble des Jeux Olympiques de Pékin. Ce sera le plus grand nombre de sportives féminines jamais atteint aux Jeux d'hiver.
