MOSCOW, 25 Jul – The Organizing Committee of the Summer Olympics and Paralympics in Paris has unveiled the slogan for the 2024 Games, according to the website of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The slogan of the Games will be the phrase Games wide open in English (literally – “Widely open Games” or “Games open to everyone”) or Ouvrons grand les jeux – in French (literally – “Let’s open the Games wide”).
“This new slogan clearly reflects Paris 2024’s commitment to remodel the Games in line with the 2020 Olympic agenda by opening them up to as many people as possible. Opening ceremony on the banks of the Seine, competitions held in iconic venues across the city and events in Paris will bring people together both on and off the venues, in person and online,” said IOC chief Thomas Bach.
“This approach will be key to inspiring the next generation, allowing even more people in France and around the world to experience the Olympic spirit and values. This will help to leave a lasting legacy after the 2024 Games,” he added.
The Paris Olympics will take place from July 26 to August 11, 2024. The Paralympics will be held in the capital of France from August 28 to September 8, 2024.
