Prince Jigyel Ugyen Wangchuck, the President of the Bhutan Olympic Committee and member of the International Olympic Committee, granted an audience to the athletes, coaches and officials representing Bhutan at the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, today.
“This is a historic sporting moment for Bhutan, as we will be represented by four athletes at the 32nd summer Olympic Games. I know that all of you have trained hard to get here, to the pinnacle of sports, some at great personal sacrifice and effort, and so I would like to wish each and everyone of you, the very best of luck. As ambassadors of our country to Japan, and the entire world watching the Olympic Games, you must represent Bhutan, the Bhutan Olympic and Paralympic Committees, and your sport, appropriately, at all times, whether in the field of play or beyond it. Please put in your best effort and give it your best shot. At the same time, revel in the experience, enjoy yourselves but also be mindful of the current challenging times and ensure strict adherence to all the health and safety protocols. Your health and safety is our top most priority.” Prince Jigyel Ugyen Wangchuck
