  1. Join Annecy 2018's fans on facebook! The snowy village atmosphere... In the heart of mountains for a real winter atmosphere. In the heart of Annecy, Chamonix and mountain villages for a festive atmosphere. In the heart of people for a warm popular fervor (250000 spectators at the 2009 world championships, 135000 fans on facebook). Biathlon at the heart of Le Grand-Bornand
  2. Here is the Paris 2024 venue plan: http://www.paris2024.org/en/content/venue-plan I've tried to overlay it on the Grand Paris Express map: It will bring: a fast connection to the airports. a fast connection inside the « Grand Paris zone ». a new big station: Saint-Denis-Pleyel. This station may also be a TGV (High Speed Train) station => direct access to stade de France: about 2H from London, 1H20 from Bruxelles, 1H from Lille... It can also be noticed several new tramway lines (orange dashed lines). They will help to connect some venues: hockey (20): tramway T1 line from Colombes Station to Colombes stadium (1 km) venues near the media village: tramway « tangentielle Nord » connected to Le Bourget Station (1.5 km) Equestrian Sports (23): tramway « tangentielle Ouest » connected to RER C (2 km)(an alternative solution is a walk across Versailles gardens) the olympic tramway that should link all of the venues on the right bank of the river Seine. (the existing RER C line follows the left bank of the river Seine) The green line shouldn't be ready for 2024 (planed for 2030). Thus, the golf venue (27) will not be reacheable by rail. Another venue is not reacheable by rail: Mountain bike (26). They should be the only 2 venues that will not be directly accessible by rail (about 5 km from Saint-Quentin station). On the other hand, it is not a problem for Equestrian sports (23), track cycling (24) and BMX (25). 3 existing lines are available: - line N from Gare Montparnasse to Saint-Quentin: 25 min - line U from La défense to Saint-Quentin: 32 min - RER C: This line crosses the « PARIS CENTRE zone » and continues to Saint-Quentin (for exemple Eiffel Tower to Saint-Quentin: 35 min) The existing Paris Metro lines: The existing Paris Area transilien network: Train network with LGV lines:

    And why would they do better in 2028? Maybe they could get more sun due to the climate change that Trump is going to reinforce? (the question now is not to know if Paris is good enough to host the Games but when they're going to host the Games: 2024 or 2028)
  5. It was 44% full support for Paris 2012, 30% for Paris 2024..........wait for Paris 2028 and it will be about 15%

    Coming from my small Asterix village, I must say that I do not like the Paris metro either...but it transports 9 millions people per day! I agree there will be no problem in August, all parisians go away!

    Paris 2024

    Because any "big" event in the city may help the bid (just like the fashion week, or LaLaLand....) Because it takes place in the city center, exactly were the olympics would take place In my mind, because it promotes the use of electric cars which is a strong point of Paris (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autolib' made for sharing! )

    Maybe they would accept to use the Autolib' electric car service if these cars were added into the pool of Autolib' shared cars
