After a 2022 full of twists, turns and projects, the Abilympics France team is about to end their year. This December, it’s already time to look ahead to 2023 and their flagship event – the 10th International Abilympics.

42 talented people recruited from the French delegation

Abilympics France has criss-crossed the region and skills competitions to recruit 42 gems to represent the French Tricolour. From 23rd to 25th March 2023 in Metz, the French delegation will attend the 10th International Abilympics.

2022, a presence at many events

Competitors from the French delegation have been very active in their preparation for the10th International Abilympics France. Several have taken part in preparatory events such as the Erasmus+ education week in Helsinki, in partnership with Skills Finland, the French team’s cohesion seminar in January 2022, which took place in Lyon and competition training courses with business coaches.

These meetings in particular, allowed candidates to prepare themselves physically, mentally and technically. Participation and success in the 2023 International Abilympics hinges on these different steps.

We have a surprise for you at this festive time of year 🎄

Our team set off to discover the competition site. See a preview of the place where delegations from all over the world will compete!

See you in March!

On the programme: 45 events, 400 talents from 25 different nations!

After a successful first event in France in 2016, when the 9th International Abilympics were implemented, France has once again accepted the challenge of organising the 10th International Abilympics in less than 6 months with the help of its partners.
The event will be held at the Parc des Expositions de l’Eurométropole de Metz from 23rd to 25th March.

Over the course of these 3 days, candidates with disabilities will compete in their chosen professions and highlight their know-how and talent. Which nations will come out on top? 🏅

2 events in 1 working for inclusion!

Organised jointly with the WorldSkills* regional finals for the Grand Est Region, the aim of this event is to reveal the skills of people with disabilities, so that the disability disappears letting professional skills shine through.

In the meantime, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
