These athletes were recently honoured by Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene at a ceremony at the Monaco Yacht Club.

For this 33rd Olympiad, Monaco is fully embracing the commitment of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to gender parity. Paris 2024 will be the first Olympic Games in history where there will be absolute equality between men and women in all competitions. It’s a major milestone for the Games which reflects today’s society.
