  1. Tickets

    I wonder when I will get my tickets...
  2. Paris 2024

    Maybe keeping the same logo would show the organizing committee is cost-conscious. No new expense of logo brainstorming and creation ?
  3. Paris 2024

    Except Albertville, once again.
  4. Paris 2024

    That would be like for Albertville then. They kept the bid logo.
  5. Paris 2024

    First time I see this Logo
  6. Tickets

    I have A category on all my tickets but one, which has not happened to me ever (seventh time I go to the Games). So there must really be a problem with sales.
  7. PC 2018 Cauldron placement

  8. PC 2018 Cauldron placement

    There are pictures of the full cauldron on Google Earth if you browse through the images attached to the Olympic stadium.
  9. Paris 2024

    Grand Paris Express: Pécresse met en garde contre des «dépassements de budget» Head of Ile de France region Pecresse « discovers » the issue and provides a dire warning.
  10. A Milan bid would reawake bad memories in the Sion 2026 team...
  11. 2026/2030 bid procedure

    Thomas Bach seems ok with the idea
  12. Beijing 2022

    Anyone knows the exact location of the bobsleigh and luge track ?
  13. Paris 2024

    Nice article (in French, sorry) which explains that the transportation plan promised for the Games (also called Grand Paris Express) is unaffordable and that the French Government discussed internally the issue on August 2... Cost is 35 billion euros and not 22 billions as originally planned. And of course the construction has not even started. Les JO c’est gagné, mais le Grand Paris Express ça coince très fort
  14. Given the 2024/28 Games allocation this week, could the IOC open the bids for 2026/30 at the same time, so there are two winners among the bid cities once again ? like, a North American city and a European city ?
  15. Paris 2024 Ceremonies

    I think you have only partial memory of the ceremony (remembering the bungee cord dance and so on). The local element was present, both in terms of music and shows on stage. You had all the local dance groups from the whole area brought to the ceremony for instance. You had horn players, traditional clothes and so on. For me there was a correct balance between grounded, local stuff and universal things. Of course you had not the mustached, beret and baguette Frenchman.
