WFSGI Statement on International Sport Competition
As a non-profit organization representing the sporting goods industry, the World Federation of Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI) strives to promote the unifying power of sport to move the world forward.
When athletes around the world compete on the global stage in this year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing, we will, once again, bear witness to the true spirit of sport. Sport demonstrates inspiration, camaraderie and unity – qualities the world needs now more than ever, especially amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As the sole and unique world authoritative body for the sporting goods industry, officially recognized by the International Olympic Committee, we believe the world needs the unifying power of sport.
The XXIV Olympic Winter Games in Beijing provide us all with an opportunity to connect across and within societies to celebrate sport, champion athletes, lift our spirits and bring people together. WFSGI stands in support of all athletes and honors the enduring values of sport.
