Yesterday was finally the opening ceremony of the 55e Finale des Jeux du Québec – Laval 2022, at Place Bell.
The evening was hosted by Émilie Duquette and Alexandre Despatie, both of whom played the Jeux du Québec at a younger age. They were impressed by the energy of all the young athletes present for the ceremony.
Laval has reserved a light show for the athletes and parents at Place Bell, offering impressive laser effects and rhythmic music. Former Laval athletes were also at the opening ceremony to celebrate the start of the competition.
Gymnast William Emard had the honor of lighting the flame of the 55e Finale des Jeux du Québec. Emard participated at the Jeux du Québec, and now competes at the international level, with the goal of participating in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
