On 28th July at the Monte Carlo Bay, H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince Albert II presented to the press the Monegasque delegation to the 29th Olympic Games in Beijing in the presence of various key figures, members of the Monegasque Olympic Committee and Olympic players. A film tracing Monaco’s participation in the Summer Olympic Games since 1920 was screened.

Finally, the moment everyone had been waiting for – the departure for Beijing where the 29th Summer Olympic Games took place from 8th to 24th August. Five athletes represented the Principality of Monaco: Ms Fabienne Pasetti (shooting), Messrs Sébastien Gattuso (athletics), Mathias Raymond (rowing), Yann Siccardi (judo) and Romain Marcessou (weight lifting).

The Monegasque Olympic Committee appointed as Head of Mission Ms Sylvie Bertrand who fulfilled her duties extremely efficiently and diligently. The delegation’s standard bearer at the Opening Ceremony was Mr Mathias Raymond.
