OLY House Beijing 2022
Olympians for Life
At each edition of the Olympic Games, we induct five Olympians into Olympians for Life.
Olympians for Life honours Olympians who have drawn on their Olympic experiences to make the world a better place by promoting the Olympic Values at every stage of their lives.
Our inductees for Beijing 2022 represent all five continents and have risen to the top levels of their post-sport professions. From championing women in winter sport, raising mental health awareness, to having their own schools within their community - these inductees are influential in their communities and beyond.
We held an online event to introduce our Olympians for Life for the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. The event was hosted by Olympic Legend and Cool Runnings inspiration Chris Stokes OLY and featured all five inductees with our Patron Prince Albert II of Monaco OLY, and WOA President, Joël Bouzou OLY.
