REUTERS/Tingshu Wang(Reuters) - The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics unveiled its official motto,"Together for a Shared Future", during a ceremony at the city's Capital Museum on Friday.
Chen Ning, director general of Beijing 2022's Culture and Ceremonies Department, said that the slogan was a commitment towards overcoming global challenges as a community with a shared future for mankind.The motto was chosen after a lengthy process that included a total of 79 different proposals.
"This motto embodies the Olympic spirit, the Chinese way of revealing the Olympic spirit. That's because 'together' embodies a type of unity, cohesion and way of overcoming difficulties," said Chen.Earlier, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said that the Games would -- like Tokyo 2020 -- require strict COVID-19 restrictions, with Chen adding that organisers were yet to decide if spectators would be allowed. headtopics.com
