With a little over 100 days until the Olympic and Paralympic Games Beijing 2022, and as we look towards Paris 2024, Team France has unveiled its new emblem – a symbol of determination.
As the delegation, set to take part in the Olympic and Paralympic Games Beijing 2022 (from 4 to 20 February and 4 to 13 March, respectively), was officially presented and a countdown to the Games launched, the new visual identity for Team France was also unveiled. This event marks a turning point in the history of French sport; already united as one single team, the French Olympic and Paralympic athletes for both summer and winter sports will now wear clothing bearing the same emblem from now until 2024 and beyond.
Accordingly, the Le Coq Sportif range of sportswear for the Beijing 2022 Games made its first appearance today at a runway show at the brand’s factory in Romilly-sur-Seine.
Over 60 Olympic and Paralympic athletes for winter sports from the French ski federation, the French federation of ice sports, the French ice hockey federation and the French parasports federation met at Romilly-sur-Seine in a unique gathering for winter sports competitors.
Brigitte Henriques, President of the French National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF), and Marie-Amélie Le Fur, President of the French Paralympic and Sports committee (CPSF), announced the names of the mission heads who will lead the delegations in Beijing this winter: Nathalie Péchalat, President of the French federation of ice sports, will lead the Olympic delegation and Jean Minier, Sports Director of the CPSF, will lead the Paralympic delegation. This highly awaited moment was witnessed by the Minister Delegate for Sport, Roxana Maracineanu, and the High Performance Manager at the French National Sports Agency, Claude Onesta, as well as representatives from various sports institutions.
