French Science Festival 2023: Sport and science: from health to performance
As Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games will be held in less than a year, the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macao takes this opportunity to invite you for this unmissable event of scientific culture in Hong Kong!
Inspired by the official motto of the Olympics Games in Paris - "Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together", this year’s events will focus on the role of science in sport and we intend to invite everyone who is curious and passionate about sports, to take part in the upcoming many activities (exhibitions, conferences, film screenings etc.) on performance and health issues.
Have you ever wondered:

What physical and mental work is carried out behind the success of one of the best women’s football teams in France - Olympique Lyonnais?
Which training allowed Olympic gold medalist in judo, Clarisse Agbégnénou, to return to her top form and won her sixth world champion title in May 2023, just a few months after giving birth?

The French Science Festival is organized in partnership with the Hong Kong Museum of Science and Le Club Sport (France & Greater Bay Area Sport Society). The events will be free and open to everyone. Do not miss the opportunity if you wish to learn more about the benefits of physical activity on health and to discover how science can help us push our body’s limits.
