Exhibition for 2024 Olympic Games opens in Ashgabat

In the run-up to the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris, which are just around the corner, the exhibition «Les Elles des Jeux» («Women in the Olympic Games») has opened at the «Nadar Gallery» of the French Institute of Turkmenistan.

Part of the mobile exhibition, presented at the National Sports Museum of Nice, tells the story of athletes whose well-deserved recognition in the world of the Olympic Movement required decades of hard work, toil and struggle to take an honorable place in the history of international sports.

The exhibition traces the evolution of the women's sports movement over more than 130 years, highlighting the successes and achievements of athletes.

It is worth noting that the 2024 Olympic Games opening in Paris on the 26th of July will be the first in history where gender equality among athletes will be fully observed. As approved by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), it is in the capital of France that the same number of men and women will take part in Olympic competitions for the first time.

Turkmen athletes will also take part in the upcoming Olympics as an independent team. In preparation for the main starts of the four-year period, they are currently completing training camps.

Anyone can visit the exhibition «Les Elles des Jeux» in Ashgabat, which is part of the Cultural Olympiad program.

The exhibition is open until September and will be open daily from 9:00 to 20:00 in the «Nadar» Gallery. Admission is free.

Address of the French Institute: Aga Garryyev Street (former Sokolovskiy), Building 69.
