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

The event, which aims to be grandiose and “open to everyone” – with free tickets and others that also cost more than 2,000 euros – constitutes a huge challenge in terms of logistics, reception and security. The Paris 2024 Olympic Games, which will also be held in Lille (for the basketball and handball events), in Marseille (sailing and football) or even in Châteauroux (Indre) (for the shooting events), will have an impact on the daily lives of millions of French people. In the capital, the transport network is organized to travel, without derailing, nearly 7 million visitors when the town hall already warns that it will be difficult to get around by car.

Ask your questions, we answer you on Twitch

Paris, however, owes a celebration of sport and athletes. France dreams of climbing to 5th place in the table of nations, which came 8th at the end of the previous Olympics in Tokyo. Can Teddy Riner, Clarisse Agbégnénou or Florent Manaudou make the country shine and make their fans exult? What other tricolor figures can emerge or take over? Will the 2024 generation break records and climb the podiums? 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 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the franceinfo channel and in the presence of our guests: Thomas Jolly, scriptwriter of the opening ceremony, Tony Estanguet, boss of Paris 2024, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, Minister of Sports, Jean-Charles Valladont, silver medalist in Rio (shooting arc) or even Valentin Bertrand, para-athlete. Your questions will also be relayed to the franceinfo channel 27 antenna.
