On July 26, 2024, the entire planet will stare at Paris. The Seine and the monuments that line it will be the setting for an exceptional and unprecedented opening ceremony of the Olympic Games: for the first time in the history of modern Olympism, this event will not be held in a stadium. The boats carrying the 10,000 qualified athletes, but also musicians, dancers and artists will parade on the river along a 6 km route to reach the Trocadero, where officials and heads of state will be present. Between 400,000 and 600,000 spectators are expected on the quays to watch the launch of the Games.

The event, which wants to be grandiose and “open to all” – with free tickets and others that cost even more than 2000 euros – constitutes a great challenge in terms of logistics, reception and safety. The Paris 2024 Olympic Games, which will also be held in Lille (for basketball and handball competitions), in Marseille (sailing and football) or even in Châteauroux (Indre) (for shooting competitions), will have an impact on the daily lives of millions of French people. In the capital, the transport network is organized to allow almost 7 million visitors to travel without derailing, when the town hall has already warned that it will be difficult to get around by car.

Ask your questions, we’ll answer them on Twitch

Paris, on the other hand, owes a celebration of sport and athletes. France dreams of climbing to 5th place in the ranking of nations, which came 8th at the end of the previous Tokyo Olympics. Will Teddy Riner, Clarisse Agbégnénou or Florent Manaudou be able to make the country shine and make their fans cheer? What other tricolor figures can emerge or take over? Will the 2024 generation break records and get on the podium? Ask all your questions in the form below.

Find #OnVousRépond with our journalists Cédric Cousseau and Clément Mariotti Pons during an exceptional Twitch on Wednesday July 26 from 9:00 to 11:00 on the franceinfo channel and in the presence of our guests: Thomas Jolly, screenwriter of the opening ceremony, Tony Estanguet, head of Paris 2024, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, minister of sport, Jean-Charles Valladont, silver medal ist in Rio (shooting bow) or also Valentin Bertrand, para-athlete. Your questions will also be sent to the antenna of channel 27 of franceinfo.
