Additional sports

Paris 2024 has utilized the chance given by the IOC through the Olympic Agenda 2020 to suggest more sports to improve its program and overall idea. The IOC is eager to establish a fresh guideline for Games that are inclusive, gender-balanced, and focused on youth. Paris 2024 presented its plan to the IOC to include four extra sports linked to youth and celebrating both creativity and athletic achievement. Sport climbing, skateboarding, and surfing are all set to make their Olympic debut, breaking into the world of the Games. All four are simple to adopt and members create highly engaged communities on social platforms.

Leaving a legacy

Hosting the largest event globally will inevitably bring about changes to our country. Paris 2024 aims for sport values to integrate into everyday life and demonstrate that we can reach excellence while promoting sustainability.

Our venue concept

Due to its unique characteristics, Paris is set to offer a full spectacle during the Games, catering to athletes, spectators, and TV viewers.

Paris's famous landmarks are being turned into sports venues to give spectators a unique experience and serve as a remarkable setting for athletic talent. This special idea shapes our blueprint for the 35 locations.

The Games championed by athletes

Paris 2024 aims to host a event that is planned by and for the athletes. We have established the Athletes' Commission in order to provide them with a platform to speak out. Each Olympic and Paralympic Games Organising Committee has one, but Paris 2024 has chosen to expand its focus.
