New Year’s Message 2024 by IOC President Thomas Bach

Dear Olympic friends,


At the start of this very special Olympic year, there is so much to be grateful for and so much to look forward to.


Kicking off this Olympic year will be the Winter Youth Olympic Games Gangwon 2024. Building on the great legacy of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, we will celebrate a new generation of athletes in Gangwon – “Growing Together and Shining Forever” is the slogan.


With the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 only months away, the athletes, the fans, the entire Olympic community – all of us – are looking forward to a new era of Olympic Games: younger, more inclusive, more urban, more sustainable. The very first Olympic Games with full gender parity. The very first Olympic Games aligned with Olympic Agenda from start to finish.


It is inspiring to see everyone in the Olympic Movement making this new era of Olympic Games a reality. Therefore, we can look forward with great confidence to the Olympic Games Paris 2024 as a symbol of global unity and peace.
