  1. Le Monde, one of the main opponents to the Paris 2024 Games publishes another article about the Games today. Their strategy is astute : based on the withdrawal of Rome, they suggest a new bid approach which they know is not acceptable for the IOC (spreading the Games throughout Europe).
  2. I would not take holidays in Brazil if I were Bach.
  3. Well, I guess the Constitution will be changed next year to overrule the supreme court. Ready to bet ? PS: it was NOT the supreme court. You are mixing Conseil d'Etat and Conseil Constutionnel.
  4. In preparation for Madrid 2028 which will follow Los Angeles 2024

  10. This was kind of sad for me because last time I was in the stadium in London. Well you can't always be there. Maybe PC... or Tokyo
  11. Ok that' it French TV says that some parts have been dropped due to weather conditions.
  12. Do you know Coubertin wanted Ode to Joy as Olympic anthem?
  13. We have a say in French: there are also flying fish, but they are not the majority of the fish.
  14. Speaking French a lot, exhuming an old award by Coubertin... Is this a sign?
  15. I would love to see his papers flying away with the wind.
