The Beijing 2022 Winter Games logo shone brightly under the city’s floodlights as night fell on the capital. A band of disabled musicians from all over China got the ceremony started with their infectious sounds.
As Xi Jinping, President of the People’s Republic of China, and Andrew Parsons, President of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), entered the arena, the stage transformed into a starry ocean, transporting those in attendance through a timeline of the past 12 Paralympic Winter Games.
