June 23rd is International Olympic Day. The launching ceremony of the second phase of the “Salute to the Olympic Spirit” theme series, namely the “6.23km+relay run” event, was held at the Olympic Declaration Square in Beijing.

In his congratulatory letter, Bach pointed out that since ancient times, the Olympic Games have been promoting world peace through sports. During the Games, athletes put aside barriers and compete together, making the Games a powerful symbol of peace.
Bach pointed out that under the guidance of the Olympic agenda, the 2024 Paris Olympic Games will usher in a new era of the Olympic movement.

With the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and other famous landmarks in the background, tens of thousands of people will cheer for outstanding athletes from all over the world.
The congratulatory letter will serve as the preface to the forthcoming “Olympic Manifesto – A Beautiful Olympic Culture Volume IV”.
