About the 2022 U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Assembly
The three-day event celebrated the accomplishments of Team USA - and the dedicated community of staff, athletes, National Governing Bodies, and many supporters. The time was used to come together to listen, engage and embrace diverse perspectives, with the goal of emerging as a more unified and collaborative community so that, together, we can empower American athletes to reach their greatest potential on and off the field of play.
