Paralympische Winterspelen in Beijing
March 4, 2022 - March 13, 2022 - The 2022 Winter Paralympic Games, officially known as the XIII Paralympic Winter Games, take place in Beijing, China.
Beijing hosts ten adrenaline-filled days of the world’s finest paralympic athletes competing in 78 events across six winter sports disciplines.
The Paralympic logo, subtitled “Flying High” is a stylised version of the Chinese character for “fly”. It emulates the form of a wheelchair-bound athlete surging towards a finish line, with the typography recalling the calligraphic heritage of China.
